Here are some articles and clips about coaching and gay men that you may find interesting.
Great article on the role developing resilience in gay men can have on self esteem and overall well being. Coaching is a great way to develop self esteem in a safe, supportive environment.
I particularly like this quote from Ron Stall:
"interventions need to build on gay men's resilience, to be "strength-based," rather than deficit-based. "We're so focused on risk factors to the point that we forget about resilience," he said. "It seems to me a smarter way to go would be to look at the guys who are thriving in spite of the adversities, how they pulled that off, see what the lessons learned are, and apply that to the interventions we already use and have developed."
