This unique and timely volume provides a comprehensive overview of the most recent clinical work and research on the topic. Reflecting the authors' years of expertise in assessing and treating this population, this detailed work covers:
  • Core phenomenology
  • Epidemiology
  • Diagnosis and assessment
  • Associated psychopathology
  • Etiology
  • Treatment
  • Long-term follow-up
Following an overview of the disorder, the first section of the book deals with young children, providing a detailed analysis of gender identity disorder in both boys and girls. The authors integrate information from the extant literature with findings from the largest sample of children with this disorder ever studied. The second section, which focuses on adolescents, covers gender identity disorder, transvestic fetishism—also based on the largest sample of individuals ever studied—and homosexuality. Shedding light on the topic as well are cogent discussions of relevant studies of adults with transsexualism and analyses of recent research on the development of sexual orientation. Detailed clinical case material, which brings the issues to life, is included throughout.

Providing the most in-depth, authoritative resource available on the diagnosis, assessment, etiology, and treatment of gender identity disorder in children and adolescents, this volume is invaluable for child psychiatrists and psychologists, sexologists, pediatricians, social workers, and scholars and students of human sexuality, gender development, and child psychopathology. Debunking many of the myths and generalizations associated with this population, this volume also lays the groundwork for future critical discussion.
