Editorial Reviews

Deb Price
A valuable resource for anyone who works with -or simply cares about -young people.
Edge
Lesbian and Gay Youth offers a practical, hands-on, . . . .comprehensive guide to mental and physical health care for gay youth.
Steven E. James
Ryan and Futterman have created a unique and lasting resource by integrating the psychological and physical treatment issues of lesbian and gay youth. This book is not only a valuable contribution to professionals' understanding, it also is appropriate for educators, administrators, advocates, and parents.
Tony Silvestre
Ryan and Futterman provide us with a vision and the information we need to support the organizations that are desperately trying to respond to these needs and to mobilize forces to change the health care and research agendas that are killing our people through their silence and neglect.
W. Gerald Heverly
Each chapter of Lesbian and Gay Youth is richly documented. . . .Health care providers and mental health professionals who work with gay and lesbian adolescents will want to keep a copy of Lesbian and Gay Youth within arm's reach.

Emphasizing that "quality care for lesbian and gay youth is quality care for all youth," this comprehensive guide helps primary care providers learn the right questions to ask as well as the right answers to give.
