A Clinician’s Guide to Gender-Affirming Care

Transgender and gender nonconforming TNGC people present with complex mental health needs and are increasingly seeking support. This comprehensive guide offers the latest research and recommendations to equip you with the necessary knowledge, skills, and awareness to provide competent and affirming care to TNGC people.

Written by three psychologists specialising in working with the TGNC community, this significant book emphasises the importance of recognising the needs of TNGC folks. It presents interventions tailored to various stages and contextual factors, including cultural intersections such as race, socioeconomic status, and religious background.

This book delves into the historical, cultural, ethical, and legal considerations that may arise in therapy settings with gender-diverse folks. Additionally, it explores informed consent models that advocate for a shift in the mental health provider’s role towards supporting gender-affirming medical care, such as hormone therapy, surgeries, and other procedures.
