SORT BY Relevancy
Homosexuality as an identity is increasingly acceptable in our society. However, we have a long way to go in offering help to children and their families as a gay child struggles with his/her identity, and makes the decision to come out. We need to find ways to be supportive to families and the individual child. The dynamics of a family are invariably changed when a child comes out and the family needs to be considered as a system in order to begin to come to terms with their child's identity.
Parents often feel stigmatized, and believe that they have not succeeded in being a good parent. "What did I do wrong?" Kids may blame themselves for even feeling any sort of sexual attraction to a same sex person, and fear they could lose their family, if it was even hinted at. Although many parents suspect their child is gay, it is rarely a topic that is addressed openly before the child comes out.
Today's guest, Dr Michael LaSala, the author of "Coming Out, Coming Home: Helping Families Adjust to a Gay or Lesbian Child," will help us understand the complexities of this concern and how we can navigate them.
Michael C. LaSala, PhD is a psychotherapist and associate professor at the School of Social Work at Rutgers University. He has been in practice for more than 30 years and he currently treats LGBT individuals and families at the Institute for Personal Growth in Highland Park, NJ.
Dr. LaSala’s book entitled “Coming Out, Coming Home: Helping Families Adjust to a Gay or Lesbian Child” is available from Columbia University Press and describes the findings and practice implications of a National Institute of Mental Health funded qualitative study of 65 gay and lesbian youth and their families.
Dr. Carmen D. Ortiz, co-founder of Healthy Dog Depot, LLC and Lesbian Business Project, LLC; and Dennis Berardi, co-founder of Life's Abundance, talk about the opportunity that LGBT dog caregivers have to increase their current income and grow their retirement assets by promoting nutritional products that improve the quality of life and life span of our loving companions.
Healthy Dog Depot has created a powerful collaboration with Life's Abundance with the dual mission of promoting dog health and empowering Lesbians to grow their businesses, their income and their assets.

This Thriver Story is about Yvette, a gay women who suffered a narcissistic relationship.
I was thrilled when Yvette came forward, deeply wanting to share her story for the gay community … because over the years people have emailed and said to me “My narcissistic abuse situation with a same sex relationship, can you please write about that Melanie?”, whereas truly from what I have seen up close and personal with the numerous gay clients I have done energetic healing work with, is that same sex narcissistic dynamics are identical to heterosexual ones.
My great friend Eric Casaccio the director of the movie “Narcissist” also agrees. He too reports that many people in the heterosexual community have reported to him, in his travels world-wide, the identical narcissistic abuse incidents that the gay community have experienced.
What I think is wonderful, is that we now have a Thriver, Yvette, who can help gay and lesbian people identify with narcissistic abuse and recovery.
Whether you are same sex orientated or hetrosexual, if you have been narcissistically abused, I know you will relate and get a lot out of this radio show.
For more details about my healing system, which Yvette used to heal and recover from narcissistic abuse - please see www.melanietoniaevans.com/narp
