Praise for the book

"Informative without being overdone. Easily understood with useful examples, explanations, and resources outlining the unique challenges, experiences, and needs of trans and gender diverse people. dickey & Puckett call critical attention to the need for psychologists to examine their assumptions and training deficits and to take action to improve mental health outcomes and reduce unintended harm. A clarion call to step up to excellence in serving trans and gender diverse people!"
Ruben Hopwood, PhD, MDiv, Founding Director at Hopwood Counseling & Consulting, LLC, Cambridge, MA; Visiting Researcher at The Danielsen Institute at Boston University, MA

Michael L. Hendricks, PhD, ABPP, Washington Psychological Center, Washington, DC; lead author on seminal article developing the minority stress model for transgender people

"This book is a must-have resource for clinicians working with this population. The authors are well regarded experts in the field and have given us a gift in this book, sharing wisdom in the form of historical knowledge as well as applicable assessment and treatment strategies."
Colt St. Amand, PhD, MD (he/they), clinical psychologist and family medicine physician, co-editor of The Gender Affirmative Model

"This book is a joy to read! It is comprehensive, up-to-date, and filled with practical information. The authors’ rich clinical experience shines through on each page, presenting exactly what clinicians need to provide the best possible services for their trans clients. I highly recommend this book for therapists at all levels of experience and plan to hand it to my own students."
