about

This unique and timely volume provides a comprehensive overview of the most recent clinical work and research on the topic. Reflecting the authors' years of expertise in assessing and treating this population, this detailed work covers:

* Core phenomenology
* Epidemiology
* Diagnosis and assessment
* Associated psychopathology
* Etiology
* Treatment
* Long-term follow-up

Following an overview of the disorder, the first section of the book deals with young children, providing a detailed analysis of gender identity disorder in both boys and girls. The authors integrate information from the extant literature with findings from the largest sample of children with this disorder ever studied. The second section, which focuses on adolescents, covers gender identity disorder, transvestic fetishism--also based on the largest sample of individuals ever studied--and homosexuality. Shedding light on the topic as well are cogent discussions of relevant studies of adults with transsexualism and analyses of recent research on the development of sexual orientation. Detailed clinical case material, which brings the issues to life, is included throughout.

Providing the most in-depth, authoritative resource available on the diagnosis, assessment, etiology, and treatment of gender identity disorder in children and adolescents, this volume is invaluable for child psychiatrists and psychologists, sexologists, pediatricians, social workers, and scholars and students of human sexuality, gender development, and child psychopathology. Debunking many of the myths and generalizations associated with this population, this volume also lays the groundwork for future critical discussion.

Editorial Reviews

.,."Particularly important is the integration and explanation of the development processes that are linked to psychosexual outcomes, and the book is especially strong in its detailed review of the existing literature and recent empirical and clinical findings...a stellar contribution to the library and repertoire of individuals working with children and adolescents." --Michael Cunningham, Ph.D., Tulande U, New Orleans, "Readings," September 1996 "In their book, Zucker and Bradley have brought together and critiqued two very large psychological literatures, one from normative gender development and the other from the clinical treatment of gender identity disorders. In addition to serving as a reference text for those working in those two areas, the book will be valuable to both clinicians and researchers by providing a rich collection of case studies as well as quantitative summaries of existing data." --Beverly I. Fagot, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology, University of Oregon, Eugene "Ken Zucker and Susan Bradley have made a major contribution to child psychiatry with this encyclopedic and extraordinarily informative volume." --Susan Coates, Ph.D. .,."This book will be of interest to child and adolescent psychiatrists, general psychiatrists, and other therapists with an interest in gender identity and sexuality, including transsexualism. ...this volume represents a comprehensive discourse on all of the up-to-date and extant literature and is highly recommended as a reference text." --Gregory Motayne, "The Canadian Journal of Psychiatry," October 1997 .,."Research and case examples are presented in enough detail to be interesting and understandable but not in so much depthas to become boring...This book is well worth reading for the information that it presents about the normative and atypical development of gender identity, even for clinicians who may never see a juvenile who presents with gender identity issues." --Gregory K. Lehne, Ph.D, "Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease"
