“A courageous volume that leaves no issue unexamined in its goal of modifying and applying ACT to function as a gender affirmative therapy.” -Steven C. Hayes, PhD

A courageous volume that leaves no issue unexamined in its goal of modifying and applying ACT to function as a gender affirmative therapy. Never condemning, and yet never avoidant, this book asks practitioners to look deeply within themselves and to embark on a values-based journey to create a space in which the full range of issues in gender identity, expression, and experience can be approached openly, competently, and compassionately. Moving, wise, and effective it rises to the challenge it sets for itself, and invites readers to do likewise.

Highly recommended.
