There are still many issues affecting the mental health of the members of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender communities that have not been discussed or sufficiently presented. This volume presents some of these issues with the hope that an understanding of these issues will help professionals better differentiate health from pathology and more accurately evaluate and successfully treat lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender persons.

Reviews

"There are still many issues affecting the mental health of the members of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender communities that have not been discussed or sufficiently presented. This volume presents some of these issues with the hope that an understanding of these issues will help professionals better differentiate health from pathology and more accurately evaluate and successfully treat lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender persons."-- "From the Preface" "Jones and Hill have created a volume that is both ambitious in scope and commendable for its inclusion of some of the more neglected elements and issues pertinent to LGBT communities."-- "Douglas C. Haldeman, Contemporary Psychology APA Review of Books", "2004" "The busy clinician will find this book a convenient and easy way to update a psychiatric approach to gender issues that no longer views sexual orientation as problematic, but addresses the stress of the person living in our culture that is not, in general, accepting of sexual difference."-- "Patricia E. Murphy, Ph.D., Doody's Health Science Book Review Journal", "August 2002"
