Abstract: 

As a clinician, you understand there's no one-size-fits-all approach for working with transgender and gender nonconforming (TGNC) clients. These clients each require unique treatment methods that address who they are in relation to the world. This comprehensive guide outlines the latest research and recommendations to provide you with the requisite knowledge, skills, and awareness to treat TGNC clients with competent and affirming care. 

Written by three TGNC psychologists who specialize in working with the TGNC population, this professional resource provides up-to-date information on language, etiquette, and appropriate communication and conduct in treating TGNC clients. You'll learn about the historical and cultural contexts of this population, as well as ethical and legal issues that can arise when working with gender-diverse individuals in a clinical setting. You'll also find information about informed consent approaches, and referral for medical procedures such as hormones or surgery. As transgender health care continues to evolve, it's important to incorporate clients' changing needs. This book provides everything you need to enhance your practice and help your TGNC clients thrive.
