Overview

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Broad yet in-depth, this volume offers an invaluable resource for both social work educators and practitioners working with gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender clients and their families. It is the first such work to specifically address issues affecting bisexual and transgender individuals.

Topics discussed include heterosexism and homophobia, GLBT identity development, GLBT adolescents and older adults, healthcare concerns, workplace issues, sex reassignment, and AIDS. The contributors also consider intragroup issues of race, ethnicity, age, and socioeconomic status.

...a must read for anyone in the helping professions, from medicine to counseling to education itself.

Health & Social Work - Stephanie K. Swann
The book is a thorough summary of practice and policy issues... a good addition to the social work literature.

What People are Saying About This

Michael LaSala
Leading social work academics in the field of GLBT practice have assembled a remarkably comprehensive and scholarly volume that is an indispensable resource for social work educators, researchers, and practitioners. By thoroughly describing the concerns of bisexual and transgender clients and emphasizing structural oppression and environmental interventions, the authors have created a work that distinguishes itself from its predecessors and is destined to be a classic text. Certainly A MUST READ for not only GLBT classes but also general diversity, oppression, and human behavior courses.

K. Jean Peterson
Morrow and Messinger have provided the social work profession with an excellent new book about GLBT people. Along with having compiled an impressive list of contributors, the organization of the book is particularly impressive. This book should be required reading for all social workers and a standard reference for GLBT issues.

Ski Hunter
This text is comprehensive as are all of the chapters that also include practice implications. The historical and heterosexist contexts lay the setting for the multitude of topics including more detailed knowledge about bisexual and transgender persons than is in most texts on LGBT persons. This text can be the main text for a course on LGBT persons as students would be informed in detail about many topics they may be called upon to address with this population and as affirmative practitioners.
