This article explores the idea that because of the increasing recognition of same sex marriages in different authorities, it is important for family therapists to attain clinical expertise when dealing with same sex families. This paper uses the theoretical framework of competent family therapy practice along with queer theory to discus the different aspects of how a homosexual family functions and how the role delineation between parents.

So research is needed to see what methods work best to extinguish this prejudice and where the actual root cause of discrimination is coming from.
