This paper will discuss the unique developmental challenges LGBTQIA+ people face, the impact of early developmental stage rejection, and ways to improve clinical engagement with clients for more affirming care. This paper will describe ways clinicians can improve their skills in working with LGBTQIA+ clients who have suffered familial rejection and religious trauma. From an Intersubjective Self Psychological framework, this paper will also explore the therapist’s leading and trailing edge transferences with a cis-gender gay male client with a history of relational and religious trauma who is striving toward a cohesive self.
