Abstract or Summary
  • This study investigated the experiences of lesbians who are school counselors. A naturalistic/grounded study paradigm was utilized. The participants in the study were five lesbians who were school counselors from rural and urban settings. In-depth interviews were conducted with each of the participants. During the interview process, analysis occurred via researcher immersion. Data analysis reveals a descriptive account of being a lesbian and a school counselor and how those two identities interact. General themes identified are: being a school counselor; development of a dominant view/the construction of homosexuality; participants' perceptions of homosexuality by the dominant view; participants' experiences in living the dominant view/defining of self; and redefining the dominant view/redefining of self. An emerging theory of the interaction of power and identity development is presented, along with the proposal for developing an epistemology of homosexuality.
