Dr. Diane Ehrensaft has devoted her career in psychology to the care of children and teens who do not identify with their biological gender. In her first book, Gender Born, Gender Made she coined the phrase 'gender creative' for what the American Psychiatric Association at the time officially termed a 'disorder.'

Now, in The Gender Creative Child, Dr. Ehrensaft gives parents, teachers, families, 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 parents to listen to their children, support their quest for a true identity, and undertake a highly nuanced assessment of their particular needs.

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.
