Irwin Krieger is a clinical social worker with many years of experience helping transgender teens.  If you are the parent of a transgender teen, this book will help you understand what your child is feeling and experiencing.  Helping Your Transgender Teen  begins with the basic information you and your family need if your child is transgender.  The central chapters of the book address the fears and concerns most parents of transgender teens share.  The final chapters guide you through the steps you can take to discover what is best for your child.

“Finding an easily readable, concrete and accessible book that targets the unique needs and concerns of parents of transgender teens has been difficult. Until now.  Helping Your Transgender Teen provides information, support, understanding as well as hands-on ideas that parents can use to navigate both their child’s and their own transformation.  Bravo!”

-Robin McHaelen, Executive Director of True Colors, Inc., a non-profit dedicated to the needs and issues of LGBT youth.

    So very helpful

    A short, simply written, easily accessed text for parents of transgender teens. It was a great comfort to see every single anxiety, doubt, fear, question, concern and resistance I had experienced in relation to my child, addressed in this text. It helped me to realise that I am not unusual or 'bad' in my initial parental emotions and responses. It also helped me realise that self education is a way forward to full understanding and acceptance. Unfortunately, because it is written by a U.S. practitioner, the support groups included are located in the U.S., but websites are accessible world wide. I would highly recommend this text as a starting point for parents of a transgender child and for other significant adults in their lives.
