Counseling and Advocacy with Transgendered and Gender-Variant Persons in Schools and Families.
Chen-Hayes, Stuart F.
Journal of Humanistic Counseling, Education and Development, v40 n1 p34-48 Spr 2001
Nontraditional gender identity and expression have been ignored or pathologized in most school, agency, and family counseling settings. Transgenderist oppression is based on ignorance and fear of difference. Suggestions are given for counseling and advocacy using transgendered and gender-variant persons' strengths as a challenge to pathology-based frameworks. (Contains 38 references and an appendix.)
