Successful brief psychotherapeutic work with gay men includes the use of clinical hypnoses as well as an accepting compassionate stance of the psychotherapist. Ego state work and positive self-representations create healing from years of internalized sham. Specific psychosocial issues for game men, core issues common in the gay male community, customized hypnosis scripts, and effective short-term treatment strategies will be discussed.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Describe and utilize at least three successful hypnotic techniques or short-term interventions specific for gay men.
  2. List the five special challenges in working with groups.
  3. Describe how a therapist’s bias can affect treatment outcomes.
