Developmental and clinical psychologist Diane Ehrensaft, PhD, has devoted her career to the care of children and teens who do not abide by the gender binary, either in their gender identities or expressions. In her first book, Gender Born, Gender Made, she coined the phrase “gender creative” to replace what the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual, at the time, still officially termed a “disorder.”

Now, in The Gender Creative Child, Dr. Ehrensaft gives families, teachers, and therapists a totally up-to-date, comprehensive resource to caring for children whose gender expression is fluid or who question the gender they were assigned at birth. In nine easily digestible chapters, she encourages both parents and professionals to listen to the children, support their quest for their authentic gender selves, undertake a highly nuanced assessment of their particular needs, and advocate for a gender-expansive world.

A thought leader and champion of gender-creative identity, Dr. Ehrensaft illuminates the many routes that children may take and answers the many questions that parents and others will have.

Diane Ehrensaft, PhD, is a developmental and clinical psychologist and the Director of Mental Health at the University of California, San Francisco Child and Adolescent Gender Center. She holds leadership positions at the Children’s Psychotherapy Project and A Home Within. The author of numerous books and articles, Dr. Ehrensaft focuses her research on child development, gender, parenting, and psychological issues.

Norman Spack, MD, is the director and cofounder of the Gender Management clinic at Boston Children’s Hospital, the first US clinic to treat transgender children. Dr. Spack has helped pioneer the use of hormone blockers to delay puberty and hormone replacement therapy in teens. He has received national attention for his 2014 TEDx talk “How I help transgender teens become who they want to be” (over 1 million views) and was featured in Diane Sawyer’s landmark interview with Bruce Jenner. Dr. Spack is Associate Professor of pediatrics at Harvard Medical School.
