Overview

People with gender identity problems are increasingly often encountered by health professionals. The problems are often imagined to consist only of transsexuality, but actually comprise of both this and many other diagnoses. Properly establishing a diagnosis and excluding alternatives including psychosis, partial androgen insensitivity syndromes and personality disorder is complex. The subsequent management of these disorders and their differential diagnoses is even more so. Transsexual and other Disorders of Gender Identity provides a comprehensive and extremely practical account of the management of disorders of gender identity and their differential diagnoses. Particular consideration is given to, among others, coincidental mental illness, disability, family and relationship issues, forensic and military settings. Psychological and endocrine aspects are covered in depth, surgical aspects to a level adequate for all but a specialist surgeon, and legal aspects to the level generally needed by health professionals. This book provides vital detail for general practitioners, surgeons, endocrinologists, speech therapists, social workers and, especially, psychiatrists.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Steven T. Herron, MD (University of Arizona Health Sciences Center)
Description: This book attempts to rectify the dearth of information available for those working with individuals with disorders of gender identity by focusing on the clinical evaluation and management of these patients.
Purpose: Primarily meant as a guide to assist clinicians, this book attempts to walk providers through the process of screening, evaluating, and treating men and women with gender identity disorders.
Audience: Although there is useful background information and valuable insights for anyone interested in this topic, the main beneficiaries of this guide are the clinicians working with individuals diagnosed with various types of gender identity disorders.
Features: Packed with clinical vignettes, this book takes a more practical, and less academic, approach to understanding these disorders. While the chapters regarding referral and initial assessment are useful, the power of this book comes from the chapters related to the real life experience of these patients and the thoroughly covered (both surgical and nonsurgical) treatment options. Of particular interest are the photographs of individuals undergoing gender reassignment surgery, as well as the explanations of the proper terms used to discuss these individuals.
Assessment: Though my knowledge of this subject is limited, as the editor correctly explains, there are very few practical, or for that matter, useful resources for clinicians treating individuals with gender identity disorders. This book was clearly penned by providers with exceptional clinical experience, as well as a definite interest in offering education to those having questions regarding these patients. Despite the fact it is written by clinicians practicing in the United Kingdom, many of the concepts are likely to be applicable to those practicing in the United States. This is an excellent resource for any mental health provider, but is a must for those frequently treating patients with gender identity disorders.
