"Adult Transgender Care provides an excellent nuts and bolts approach to providing competent gender affirming care in adults. The book is written by top authors in the field in a user-friendly, case-based approach. I highly recommend this book for students, post-doctoral fellows, mental health clinicians, primary care physicians or anyone who is interested in learning more about how to follow the best practices in transgender care."

"This is a wonderful new resource for any clinician working with trans-identified individuals. It is unbelievably practical! Written by some of the best clinicians in the field, this is a must have book as an easy primer as well as an easy reference guide."
Eli Coleman, PhD, professor and director, Program in Human Sexuality, University of Minnesota Medical School
"Adult Transgender Care, edited by Michael Kauth and Jillian Shipherd, is a long overdue practical guide to comprehensive interdisciplinary transgender care for mental health professionals and trainees. It meets a pressing need, arriving at a time when few clinicians have received much training in this area despite a growing demand for services. In addition to being a valuable resource for seasoned clinicians, trainees and everyone in between, its breadth of coverage would make it an ideal textbook for courses in transgender care."
William Byne, MD, PhD, editor-in-chief, LGBT Health, LGBT veteran care coordinator, James J. Peters VA Medical Center, Bronx, New York
"All chapters have a very trans-affirming tone and many include passages on the importance of recognizing and supporting clients with nonbinary identities...This is a useful sourcebook that clearly and succinctly presents a wide range of information needed by mental health professionals who wish to work with transgender adult clients."
Hilary L Copp, 'Adult Transgender Care: An Interdisciplinary Approach for Training Mental Health Professionals', Health & Social Work, Volume 43, Issue 4, November 2018
