Broad yet in-depth, this volume offers an invaluable resource for both social work educators and practitioners working with gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender clients and their families. It is the first such work to specifically address issues affecting bisexual and transgender individuals. Topics discussed include heterosexism and homophobia, GLBT identity development, GLBT adolescents and older adults, healthcare concerns, workplace issues, sex reassignment, and AIDS. The contributors also consider intragroup issues of race, ethnicity, age, and socioeconomic status.
