AFFIRMATIVE THERAPY

a sociocultural updated interference which enables patients and their social networks, especially in the circumstances in which ethnic, sex, or sexual preference diversity has been ignored or in which standard circumstances, such as being homosexual, have been attributed to pathology. Concentrating on self-awareness and cultural consciousness, this treatment might be applied as a specific interference or inside the framework of other therapies.

AFFIRMATIVE THERAPY: "Affirmative therapy has shown great success in motivating minority populations to pursue their educational and occupational goals."
