Lesbians, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Queer

The most challenging case among the four was that of Carlos. Thiscase feels so because the client, Carlos,experiences gradual conversion to an unhealthy lifestyle despite thegood values and environmental conditions that he issubjected to at home, school, and by the peers (The LGBTCasebook, n.d.). Another challenge is the acceptance that hereceives from his mother, but still, he isdisturbed by the adolescent fantasies of parental rejection afterlearning about his sexual orientation. Additionally, Carlos seems tohave found a group of fellow gays, butstill, he does not entangle his ideas and thoughts with them.Instead, he finds pleasure in those who use methamphetamine to derivesexual pleasure. Furthermore, he enrolls in the AA group and laterbackslides due to the pressure and the thought of inappropriateness(The LGBT Casebook, n.d.).

Upon reviewing the disorders, I have learnedthat for some reason, the traditional stigma due to the sexualorientations of the LGBTQ group is the greatest cause of theirpsychiatric conditions. For instance, these groups resort to the useof enhancers like methamphetamine so that they can accept theirstatus and enjoy sexual activity. The fact is that a member of theLGBTQ group can create his/her own social, moral, and psychologicalquestions and develop personal and untrue responses. He or she canthen end up believing the imaginations, and get affected. Undeniably,this is a new phenomenon to me. As a result, I can deduce that anLGBTQ individual can be threatened by intrapersonal afflictionsand develop a psychiatric condition (Zamani-Gallaher &amp Choudhuri,2016). It is challenging for me to comprehend the way parents can fitinto the lives of their children and understand their sexuality. Ifeel that almost every parent does the best. Thus, it is the child’sresponsibility to seek counsel, especially after having queersexual feelings.

In conclusion, sexuality is an important aspect of humanity. Carlosis a typical case of environmental influences on the psychiatricconditions of the LGBTQ. Therefore, awareness needs to beintensified for the protection of these people.
