About the Author

Tiffany Jones is Associate Professor and ARC DECRA Fellow at Macquarie and La Trobe universities, Australia. She researches and publishes on GLBTIQ issues in education, education policy, homophobic bullying, youth wellbeing and suicide, sexuality education, values education, health and social policy, and legislative change.


Until now, practical guidance for educators, counsellors and health professionals servicing transgender youth has been sadly lacking. This book is a conduit to understanding trans youth from their perspective. It provides an evidence base together with strategies to do no harm and be of real service to this vulnerable group. -- Alison Rahn PhD, Sex Therapist, Adjunct Research Fellow, University of New England and La Trobe University
This inclusive and comprehensive guide is an outstanding resource for health professionals and researchers in healthcare, sociology, and education. It explores essential information, outlines existing problems in these areas of practice, and proposes practical, respectful solutions towards serving transgender youth. A must-have for anyone in the field who wants to build a better future for transgender and gender diverse youth. -- Dr. Mandy Henningham, University of Sydney
As an expert in the field, Jones has produced an informative and accessible must-have resource, for professionals and families of transgender youth. This book is full of pragmatic advice, and -most importantly- it is grounded on transgender youth's own expressed needs. Readers will agree this is a definite contribution to the lives of transgender people and those who live and practice with them. -- Andrea del Pozo de Bolger, Clinical Psychologist, University of New England
There is currently nothing else available like this book! Jones has successfully translated academic research into a thoroughly engaging and valuable guide for service providers, professionals, and practitioners working with transgender youth. This book fills a huge gap and will prove to be a very important resource. -- Dr Luke Gahan, Senior Research Fellow, La Trobe University, Australia
