Join us as we learn to apply a model of care to clients who report a conflict between their
sexual and religious identities. Sexual Identity Therapy (SIT) is an alternative to sexual
orientation change efforts and gay affirmative therapy that is client-centered and identity-
focused. Learn how to identify dominant, problem stories and facilitate counter-narratives that
reflect personal congruence.
Presented by: Mark Yarhouse, Psy.D. & Julia Sadusky, M.A.
- Name and describe the four phases of Sexual Identity Therapy
- Identify problem stories (or dominant narratives) that come from various influential sources in a client’s life
- Join clients on an “attributional search” for identity that reflects an emerging counter-narrative and personal congruence with one’s beliefs and values
