Through personal narratives and case studies, Social Services with Transgendered Youth explores the childhood and adolescent experiences of transgendered persons. Addressing the differences between male-to-female (MTF) and female-to-male (FTM) individuals and identifying the specific challenges of transgendered persons from diverse races, cultures, and religious backgrounds, this compelling book offers suggestions that will help social workers and the youths’families learn more about the reality of transgendered persons’lives.

Containing invaluable information on a topic that is not widely discussed or written about, Social Services with Transgendered Youth discredits negative stereotypes surrounding these youths and offers you insight into their experiences. Additionally, these articles openly address questions that practitioners may have about gender identity as well as offer concrete and practical recommendations about competent practice with this population.

This intelligent book will show you how to have a positive effect on the lives of these youth. Some of the areas discussed include:

  • individual practice with a transgendered child
  • group work practice with transgendered adolescents
  • family-centered practice with the families of transgendered persons
  • internal and external stress factors for the transgendered youth
Moving and insightful, this guide brings to light many facts that have long been overlooked by parents and social service professionals. Social Services with Transgendered Youth offers you effective strategies to work more effectively with this marginalized and underserved population.
