Editorial Reviews

'Enthralling...this is a well researched and considered text, which should be read by all practitioners who have an interest in gender relations, sexual identity, and emotional and psychological health.' - Mental Health Care 'I have read a lot of books about gender, therapy and society but nothing equal to the intellectual, imaginative and humane scope of Rowan's comprehensive work ... a superb resource for therapists.' - Andrew Samuels
