Behavior Therapists and Cognitive Behavior Therapists usually focus more on the current situation and its solution, rather than the past. Behavior Therapists and Cognitive Behavior Therapists treat individuals, parents, children, couples, and families. Replacing ways of living that do not work well with ways of living that work, and giving people more control over their lives, are common goals of behavior and cognitive behavior therapy.
About The Center
A new generation of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender youth are coming of age in a society increasingly tolerant and yet still deeply divided about homosexuality. On one hand, there is increased openness, media attention, and an older generation of openly gay and lesbian role models. On the other hand, there is an increased backlash in the form of religious fundamentalism, violence, and legal intervention designed to "protect" traditional marriages and families.
We are only human; all of us are uniquely different. Being gay or lesbian or bisexual is just the way people are interested in the same sex on an emotional level. Just because you are experimenting with the same sex does not mean that you are bisexual, gay or lesbian. Office Hours, Location Information.
