Counseling In Genderland

Counseling In Genderland
A Guide for You and Your Transgendered Client

Neila Miller
1996, Different Path Press
159 Pages

From the Cover

Those in the mental health field who have discovered gender confusion in their clients often have no background or experience in addressing it. It is like Alice's venture into Wonderland, with its own language, rules, ethics, reasoning, and poetry. This book is the first guide written for counselors of every description, plus interested laypersons, which gives a practical map in readable language, for making one's way in this foreign terrain. Neila Miller has been working and playing with crossgendered persons for half of her twenty-eight years as a humanistic counselor/educator.
