Praise for: Counseling Transgender and Non-Binary Youth

“Irwin Krieger has given us a comprehensive gender GPS for youths’ gender discovery.  Using his professional wisdom and personal compassion, he has written a volume that should be on the bookshelf of every mental health professional committed to providing youth with every opportunity to be their most authentic gender selves.”
- Diane Ehrensaft, Ph.D., Director of Mental Health, Child and Adolescent Gender Center and author of The Gender Creative Child

"A timely, useful work for clinicians treating transgender youth or those contemplating transitioning or identifying as non-binary." - Lisa Catanzaro, LCSW, Journal of GLBT Family Studies. For the full review, click here.

He blends his own extensive experience with the voices of trans people and other clinicians to create an informative, easy-to-digest manual appropriate for both new and seasoned therapists.” - Laura Erickson-Schroth, MD, MA, LGBTQ psychiatrist and writer of Trans Bodies Trans Selves and "You're in the Wrong Bathroom!" and 20 Other Myths and Misconceptions About Transgender and Gender Nonconforming People

"A remarkably comprehensive and useful book for therapists as well as parents and people who want to learn more about gender diversity and options for transition. Irwin Krieger is an experienced clinician and a great teacher; he has the ability to take complex issues and make them simple and easy to understand.” - Katherine (Kit) Rachlin, Ph.D. Clinical psychologist and senior gender specialist, New York. Co-author of Standards of Care for The Health of Transgender, Transsexual, and Gender Nonconforming People V.7, 2011.

Praise for: Helping Your Transgender Teen

“The second edition of Helping Your Transgender Teen seamlessly incorporates today’s evolving use of non-binary language to keep the book fresh and relevant. What hasn't changed, thankfully, is author Irwin Krieger's gentle and highly knowledgeable approach in presenting basic information about transition, while delivering the comforting message parents most need to hear: that their kid is going to be ok, and so will they.” - Rachel Pepper, LMFT, Author of Transitions of the Heart

“Irwin Krieger has given parents the gift of a brilliant, empathic roadmap in their journey with their transgender teen.   He stretches our horizons to bring into focus not just youth who tell us “I’m the opposite gender” but non-binary youth who identify as neither male nor female, but both or all.   Elegant, streamlined and robust, a must read for anyone raising or promoting the gender health of a transgender teen.” - Diane Ehrensaft, PH.D., Author of The Gender Creative Child and Director of Child and Adolescent Gender Center, University of California San Francisco

“Like Irwin himself, this book is accessible, informative and helpful for parents and anyone who cares about a transgender, non-binary or gender creative child or teenager. Irwin’s down-to-earth explanations, examples and recommendations bring the material to life and provide concrete, manageable ideas for parents and other caregivers looking for guidance. He has a unique ability to make the complex, clear, especially for parents who are negotiating the nuances of the growing number of youth holding non-binary identities.”  - Robin P. McHaelen, MSW, Executive Director, True Colors Inc.
