Editorial Reviews

Review

"The title tells pretty much what this groundbreaking anthology offers: a comprehensive distillation of personal experiences and professional wisdom." --Feminist Bookstore News "Professionals who work with individuals with gender identity issues and those with gender issues themselves have long needed a comprehensive guide to treatment. Finally, it is here. Gianna Israel and Donald Tarver have done a wonderful job of putting resource material from many fields into one easy to use reference book. Transgender Care is without a doubt a breakthrough work, as it addresses issues of cultural diversity, sexual orientation, and lifestyle that have been previously overlooked or ignored in the clinical literature. The supporting essays provide practical information about employment and insurance and confront the ethical difficulties of professionals who serve as gatekeepers to those who desire treatment. The authors have done a service to caregivers and transfolk alike with this monumental work." --Dallas Denney, M.A., Licensed Psychological Examiner, Executive Director, American Education Gender Information Service, Inc. "This wonderful book...is a comprehensive resource." --Archives of Sexual Behavior

Format: Hardcover
A great overview of current care standards and practices. Also includes some personal narratives. Directed to professionals in the health and therapeutic fields, but clear and readable by non-professionals, including patients, family and friends. Probably more useful if reader already has some familiarity with the field.

Format: Hardcover
The authors propose three elements of human sexuality: sex (male, female, or intersexed), gender identity (male, female, androgynous), and sexual orientation (attracted to male, attracted to females, attracted to transexuals, attracted to gay men, attracted to lesbian women, etc.).
I am writing this review from memory, so I am not certain I have the (types) correct. The key thing is that the authors argue that sexual orientation is not the same thing as gender identity.
