Exploring Gender Identity and Gender Dysphoria
What is gender dysphoria? How does it affect people? What do terms like intersex, cisgender, and transsexualism mean? This book, the first of its kind, presents an easy-to-read, jargon-free guide to help anyone understand the terminology and the day-to-day reality of gender dysphoria and related concepts.
TRANS is a book for everyone – insightful enough for professionals, but accessible enough for all. Put simply, TRANS explains what gender dysphoria is, how it affects people, and what is available, medically and psychotherapeutically, to support people with gender dysphoria.
The editor, Dr Az Hakeem, has assembled a group of contributors to give readers a truly accessible guide to the psychology and the everyday reality of gender dysphoria, transvestism, gender reassignment, and being trans. The book even addresses ‘the difficult questions’ like ‘What do we tell the children?’ and ‘What happens when you change your sex, then change your mind?’
