Reviews

'A wonderful, wide-ranging and much-needed introduction to the field of LGBTQ psychology. This unique book draws together both classic and cutting edge psychological research, and provides thoughtful and balanced reflection throughout. A must-read for any student of sexuality, or anybody in the LGBTQ world who wants to be familiar with the literature.' Meg Barker, Lecturer in Psychology, The Open University
'Comprehensive in focus, international in outlook, and critical in orientation, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Queer Psychology is a groundbreaking text, and a welcome addition. As the first real textbook of LGBTQ psychology, it reveals the breadth and depth - the richness and diversity - of a field often ignored by the mainstream of the discipline. Written with an engaging active voice, it encourages the reader both to learn this field, and critically engage with it and its place within the wider discipline of psychology. Whether it's used for teaching a course specifically on LGBTQ psychology, or to integrate LGBTQ perspectives fully into teaching another area of psychology, it provides an excellent resource for students and academics alike.' Virginia Braun, Senior Lecturer, Department of Psychology, University of Auckland
'Organizes a tremendous amount of research to illuminate LGBTQ issues including identity development, health, relationships, parenting, and diversity. This book will engage students in thinking critically about LGBTQ psychology and provide practicing psychologists and researchers with new insights.' Mary Crawford, PhD, Professor of Psychology and Women's Studies, University of Connecticut
'This book makes a very welcome contribution to the field of lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and queer (LGBTQ) psychology. While many other LGBTQ psychology books have been written ... this is the first specialist introductory text aimed at students. ... the book is designed to support the teaching of a course or lecture block on LGBTQ psychology, but in addition the broad range of topics are presented in stand alone chapters to make it suitable for those wanting an introduction to particular aspects of LGBTQ psychology. ... As an introductory text it passes with flying colours and deserves to be read widely within psychology and among those interested in the lives of LGBTQ people. ... I would recommend this book as essential reading for all psychologists - especially teaching academics and their students. It would be a fine addition to the bookshelves ...' Jeffery Adams, Massey University, Auckland
'... we believe this is an excellent introductory textbook, quite comprehensive in its scope, very readable, and appeals to undergraduate to doctoral level students and professionals.' Rosham das Nair and Susan Hansen, Psychology of Sexualities Review

"This book is not only well written but designed in a way that makes it an easy read ... As a whole, this book provides realistic ways of creating change, fosters understanding, and challenges the reader to be wary of the ways in which traditional norms can be harmful to LGBTQ people. It is an invaluable resource for anyone interested in LGBTQ psychology and should be of particular interest to professionals and students in the field of psychology. By incorporating the important topics and suggestions included in this book, the field can move toward more fully becoming 'a psychology of people'." Andrea Guschlbauer and Nathan Grant Smith, McGill University, Canadian Psychology/Psychologie Canadienne
