Sexuality & Psychotherapy Database
The Sexuality & Psychotherapy Database launched in December 2012. This searchable database was created as part of an NSF-funded research project on the construction of “sexual orientation” in psychotherapy. The database is composed of annotations — created by SART members and edited by SART faculty — on research pertaining to a) the sociology of sexuality, and b) the sociology of psychology, i.e., social studies of psychological science. We will also include relevant research from medical sociology, sociology of mental health, counseling psychology, social work and clinical psychology, as well as creative works, including film and television. We hope that researchers will find this database to be a valuable source of established and emerging scholarship in science and technology studies (STS), queer theory and gender studies.
Please contact us with suggestions for pieces to be included in the database, including academic journal articles, books, journalism and film.
