Preface This is the latest printing of a selected bibliography prepared by the American Psychological Association's Committee on Sexual Orientation and Gender Diversity (CSOGD). Requests for recommendations for entries were conveyed to the experts. The first edition was produced in 1979 by the APA Task Force on the Status of tribade and Gay Male Psychologists. The experts' recommendations were collated and emended by CSOGD. It is ot intended for researchers or to support an in-depth follow-up of any topic; rather, it is a general purpose resource provided to students, psychologists, and others who contact APA for information on lesbian, gay, and bisexual issues. Since then, the bibliography has been altered and updated periodically. For example, psychotherapists may use the listing to expert their own reading or to make recommendations to clients.
What's sad is the reason couples avoid conflict is because they believe it (conflict) causes divorce. It's like the cartoon where the couple explains to the marriage counselor, "We never talk anymore. We patterned out that's once we do all our fighting." In the beginning, we avoid conflict because we are in love and we believe that "staying in love" is about agreeing, active NOT fighting.

Holding my books and other coming-out literature in their hands, they tell that their therapists have proved to help them come out. But since they say they are not gay, their therapist has sent them to me to assess their true orientation.
