This chapter describes the negative impact that ongoing parental rejection can have on sexual and gender minority individuals and the importance of promoting parental acceptance. It then introduces and describes the structure and intervention strategies of relationship-focused therapy—a time-limited, experiential, family-based treatment specifically designed to increase parental acceptance, reduce parental rejection, and help sexual and gender minority individuals and their parents re-establish or develop loving, supportive, mutually respectful, meaningful relationships. Then, research findings supporting the model are summarized, a clinical vignette illustrating the treatment is presented, and some of the constraints and limitations of the model are noted.
