Gender diversity is now recognised as simply part of human diversity, rather than being pathological. This shift calls for a need for mental health professionals to adapt their practice when working with trans and non-binary people. Written by two clinicians with significant experience in this field, this book provides practical, everyday advice on what to do when seeing gender-diverse people in both inpatient and outpatient settings. It avoids focusing on academic theory or being overly political and, instead, offers straightforward, useful guidance on common issues clinicians may face, such as which ward to accommodate someone on or which name to use when. Topics include common drug interactions, differential diagnoses, complex case formulation, autistic spectrum conditions, the spectrum of sexualities, surgeries, legal and religious matters, forensic assessment, psychotherapy and mental health diagnoses. Fully relevant to contemporary practice, this is a much-needed guide for busy clinicians seeking immediate, practical and authoritative answers.

Reviews and Endorsements:

'This is an expert, focused and authoritative clinical overview of trans health care. Barrett and Richards combine many, many years’ experience in the field, and reach out wisely, not only to psychiatrists and psychologists but to multi gender specialist professions in shaping affirmative and collaborative care with the trans and non-binary people we serve.' Matthew Mills, Consultant Speech and Language Therapist Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust; President of the British Association of Gender Identity Specialists (BAGIS)

'Christina Richards and James Barrett have produced an authoritative yet accessible book on the range of issues involved in Trans and Non-binary gender healthcare. For too long different health care professions have felt siloed, practicing from within different stand-alone contexts, aware that their practice was limited by the specificity of their discipline. This book illustrates the importance of thinking broadly about the medical, psychological, religious, relational and psychiatric dimensions of healthcare and how these can usefully inform each other. It puts trustworthy, up to date knowledge into the hands of a range of practitioners. By bringing such disparate bodies of knowledge together our ability to serve our gender diverse clients with sensitivity and competence is significantly extended. A real aid to holistic thinking and practice that can only be a major resource for practitioners from different disciplines.' Professor Martin Milton, Regent’s University London

'Both Professor Christina Richards, an Applied Psychologist and Dr James Barrett, a Consultant Psychiatrist have written a comprehensive guide for other health care professionals working with trans and non binary people. This book covers a wide range of topics that is educational but also accessible. Both clinicians are widely respected in the health care for trans and non binary people and have extensive experience in this field. They have written a book that is hugely helpful for a better understanding and learning about trans and non binary people. It is an engaging book and provides you with valuable information that will help you to see the complicated political, social, cultural and health barriers that many trans and non binary people experience when trying to get adequate care. An excellent book, long overdue.' Dr Kamilla Kamaruddin, GP in East London, RCGP Inspire Award 2019
