"In their book, Zucker and Bradley have brought together and critiqued two very large psychological literatures, one from normative gender development and the other from the clinical treatment of gender identity disorders. In addition to serving as a reference text for those working in those two areas, the book will be valuable to both clinicians and researchers by providing a rich collection of case studies as well as quantitative summaries of existing data." --Beverly I. Fagot, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology, University of Oregon, Eugene
"Ken Zucker and Susan Bradley have made a major contribution to child psychiatry with this encyclopedic and extraordinarily informative volume." --Susan Coates, Ph.D.
"...This book will be of interest to child and adolescent psychiatrists, general psychiatrists, and other therapists with an interest in gender identity and sexuality, including transsexualism. ...this volume represents a comprehensive discourse on all of the up-to-date and extant literature and is highly recommended as a reference text." --Gregory Motayne, The Canadian Journal of Psychiatry, October 1997
"...Research and case examples are presented in enough detail to be interesting and understandable but not in so much depth as to become boring...This book is well worth reading for the information that it presents about the normative and atypical development of gender identity, even for clinicians who may never see a juvenile who presents with gender identity issues." --Gregory K. Lehne, Ph.D, Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease
"[The] in-depth treatment of these matters is likely to be of value to mental health professionals and researchers working in this field....Myths and generalizations are skillfully debunked as the authors lay the groundwork for future critical discussion."Child & Family Behavior Therapy (Child & Family Behavior Therapy 1995-10-15)
From the Back Cover
This unique and timely volume provides a comprehensive overview of the most recent clinical work and research on the topic. Following an overview of the disorder, the first section of the book deals with young children, providing a detailed analysis of gender identity disorder in both boys and girls. The second section, which focuses on adolescents, covers gender identity disorder, transvestic fetishism - also based on the largest sample of individuals ever studied - and homosexuality. Detailed clinical case material, which brings the issues to life, is included throughout.

This book thoroughly investigates why some children, as early as age 2, become unhappy with their biological genders and begin to identify with the opposite sex. If left untreated, these children often become gay, lesbian, bisexual or transsexual in later life. Zucker and Bradley suggest a different outcome is possible when appropriate mental health services are provided at an early age. When children are instilled with self-esteem that includes acceptance of their genetic identities, gender conflicts tend to dissipate, the likelihood of future homosexuality diminishes, and the child's overall well-being is enhanced.
Informative and well written, this book deals with a sensitive subject in a fair, balanced, scientifically objective and politically neutral manner. I recommend it to anyone whose policies and choices affect children in general and gender dysphoric children in particular.

It's garbage. It's bigoted. It has an agenda that is very much anti-trans. I don't want a cure...Read more
