Description


This accessible guide for clinicians and clinical students working in the fields of eating disorders and transgender health psychology offers useful tips, constructive case studies and reflective questions that enable readers to feel better equipped in supporting their clients' needs.

The book addresses the clinical challenges a therapist may encounter, and provides advice on the key issues involved in therapeutic work with transgender, non-binary and gender-expansive clients, including trauma, minority stress, coming out, family support, appearance and body changes. This book will inspire clinicians to bridge the disconnect between the clinical criteria for eating disorders and the type of eating disorder manifesting in a client with co-occurring gender dysphoria.
