“The tone is deceptively casual, the language is decidedly queer, and the range of tools is broad and comprehensive.”- Arlene Lev

Alex Stitt has written a truly delightful, comprehensive, thoughtful, and engaging book about working with trans and nonbinary clients in therapy. Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) – a mindfulness based approach – provides a meta framework for understanding gender, sexuality, and intersectional identities. I have learned so much from Alex Stitt’s perspective, about the complexity of gender, the power of relational therapy, and of course, about ACT – a series of skills and techniques available to all clinicians, regardless of your background and training. The tone is deceptively casual, the language is decidedly queer, and the range of tools is broad and comprehensive.
