Abstract

As a heuristic to facilitate future studies and theory development, a social-cognitive-behavioral model of family systems is used to organize and integrate the sparse knowledge about the experience of heterosexual family members in gays' and lesbians' families-of-origin. The impact of learning that a child or sibling is gay or lesbian on the family system and subsystems and the process of adjustment are delineated. Specific suggestions for research questions within family studies and implications for research methods, clinical practice, and family life education are included.
