Many times I've spoken with people in the psychology field or interested in the psychology field who have no idea what "Counseling Psychology" is and often have misperceptions about it, although they've heard of Clinical Psychology.

It happens. Out of the blue, your child comes out to you. What do you do? Maybe your first reaction is shock, fear, dread, shame, or for others, maybe pride in your child's courage. But what will you say? How you respond initially and over time may in large part determine how your child will adjust and develop identity and sense of safety in the home.
