This fully revised third edition explores the childhood and adolescent experiences of transgender persons, providing foundational knowledge for social workers and related professions about working with trans and gender expansive youth. Organized through the lens of four distinct forms of knowledge - knowledge of lived expertise, community-based knowledge, practice knowledge, and knowledge obtained through formal/traditional education - this text balances discussion of theory with a range of rich personal narratives and case studies. Updates and additions reflect recent changes to the WPATH guidelines and the NASW Code of Ethics, include brand new material examining the origins of gender identity and non-binary identities, explore intersectional identities, and offer expanded content considering trauma-informed interventions and ethical issues. Each featuring at least one trans or gender expansive author, chapters present concrete and practical recommendations to encourage competent and positive practice. With a focus on both macro and micro social work practice, this book will be a valuable resource to any social service practitioners working with children or adolescents.

"This book turns much of what we have been taught to be the 'evidence base' about transgender and gender diverse youth on its head, sharing the lived experiences of these individuals and connecting it to a social work context. It contains a delightful buffet of interviews, case studies, research, and more, allowing the reader to more deeply understand the diverse and nuanced needs of this population, while also centering their successes and resilience. An absolute must read for any youth centered practitioners, educators, and researchers." - Shanna K. Kattari, PhD, MEd, CSE, assistant professor, University of Michigan School of Social Work and Department of Women's and Gender Studies "Understanding the unique strengths, resiliencies, and resourcefulness of transgender and gender expansive youth is critical for all social workers. This volume expertly captures the joy and exceptionalism of transgender and gender expansive youth from the lived experiences of those whose knowledge matters most. While the challenges of thriving within a context of oppressive structures are not ignored, these structures are used to contextualize the strength and resilience that result from the joy of authenticity in the midst of these challenges." - Alan Detlaff, dean and Maconda Brown O'Connor Endowed Dean's Chair, University of Houston Graduate College of Social Work "This is a thoughtful book of collective wisdom that will profoundly shape the way that we practice and teach social work, ultimately saving lives. One of the most compelling points of the book is the clear delineation of core principles of the book and the way that this is operationalized through a collection of chapters that feature voices of transgender and gender expansive youth, as well as social work practitioners, and researchers. This book provides a compelling and holistic approach to practice with the population and fills a major gap in the social work practice literature. I will certainly use it in my LGBTQIA+ issues in social welfare course, in my work with youth, and to inform my research." - Maurice N. Gattis, PhD, associate professor, Virginia Commonwealth University School of Social Work
