Sessions

≪Organizer Abstract≫
The purpose of the symposium is to promote the translation of psychological science to guidance for psychological practice, using the example of practice with sexual and gender minorities (LGBT people). The presentations will report on efforts by psychological organizations around the world (China/Hong Kong, Hungary, UK, and US) to provide guidance for psychologists working with lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people. The documents typically provide basic information and references regarding assessment, intervention, identity development, relationships, diversity, education, training, and research. Panelists will discuss the processes and cultural and organizational contexts in which guidelines have been developed and adopted by their organizations, or are presently being developed. They will discuss strategies for dissemination and implementation of these guidelines and position statements.
