Transforming Practice - New Book on Trans Health
Looking over your tumblr it’s clear that you have a strong interest and focus in the health and well being of trans men. In our experience trans men often have to bear the burden of educating many of their health care providers about pertinent (and often impertinent) transgender health issues themselves.
Today we at Ethica Press are launching Transforming Practice: Life Stories of Transgender Men that Change How Health Providers Work, the first book of it’s kind to demonstrate how health providers might better support those questioning or struggling with gender transition on the trans-masculine spectrum. We think this book is important to the T.R.A.N.S. audience and we’d love it if you would share information about its release. The book is now available on our website and Amazon.com, and we’ll soon be launching a Kindle version.
A trans-ally, social worker and current Medical student, Marcus Greatheart was inspired to write the book after discovering how common it was to find discouraging and despair-filled accounts of gender transition among his trans male friends. In response, he interviewed satisfied, post-transition trans men about the factors and circumstances that contributed to their experiences with gender transition in order to understand what worked well and share it with those initiating or still in the transition process.
If you’re interested in delving deeper into this topic with your audience we would love to assist you by providing additional press material, setting up one-on-one interviews with Marcus, or writing a guest post for your blog at your request.
PS…Please forward this email to coworkers, friends, family…anyone you think would be interested.
