The Sexual and Gender Minority (SGM) SIG (formerly known as the Study of Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender Issues SIG) was re-named in 2017 to be more inclusive of the diverse range of sexual minority (e.g., gay, lesbian, bisexual, pansexual, queer) and gender minority (e.g., transgender, genderqueer, non-binary) individuals in the SGM community. The purpose of the SGM SIG is to provide opportunities for networking, collaboration, and mentorship for researchers and clinicians interested in the application of cognitive and behavioral principles to understanding and improving SGM health. In line with the broader mission of ABCT, the SGM SIG actively promotes the extension of empirically validated CBT interventions to SGM populations as well as the development and dissemination of research and evidence-based training in how best to serve the SGM community.
