MEDIA REVIEWS

"A classic... The findings still represent current thinking and findings in the specialty of gender identity today, some 15 years after the date in which this text was introduced to the professional community and public....The volume is invaluable to mental health professionals in that Zucker and Bradley, psychologist and psychiatrist, team up to debunk certain misconceptions and to provide a detailed analysis of gender identity disorder in both boys and girls... The inclusion of children's artwork together with case examples and clinical rating forms are exceptionally helpful for purposes of diagnosis... The book is extremely well written and well documented." - Abe Worenklein, American Journal of Family Therapy, Vol. 39, No. 1, 2011

"Indeed a classic in the field, never dated from its original publication date many years ago. The findings still represent current thinking and findings in the specialty of gender identity today, some 15 years after the date in which this text was introduced to the professional community and public... Provides a thorough, in-depth, and authoritative overview of the phenomenology, epidemiology, etiology, diagnosis, assessment, and treatment of gender identity disorder and psychosexual problems in children and adolescents. The volume is invaluable to mental health professionals in that Zucker and Bradley, psychologist and psychiatrist, team up to debunk certain misconceptions and to provide a detailed analysis of gender identity disorder in both boys and girls together with a comprehensive review of the literature, including relevant studies of adults and research on the development of sexual orientation... The inclusion of children's artwork together with case examples and clinical rating forms are exceptionally helpful for purposes of diagnosis... The book is extremely well written and well documented in a manner that leaves the reader with a wealth of information not only in terms of diagnosis and intervention but also in terms of biological and psychosocial factors that may play a role in gender dysphoria. The topics are dealt with clearly and sensitively and leave the reader with a clear understanding of the development and treatment of children and adolescents who are subsequently diagnosed as having gender identity disorder." - Abe Worenklein, American Journal of Family Therapy, Vol. 39, No. 2, 2011
