Book Description :

Transgender people deal with a range of health issues. Some are specific to the community, others affect it disproportionately, and others impact transgender and cisgender people alike. Readers will learn about mental and emotional health, gender dysphoria, hormone replacement therapy (including puberty-blocking hormones), gender affirmation surgery, and more. They’ll be reminded that, while surgery and hormone treatments can be life saving, they are neither right for every transgender person nor a requirement for being transgender. They’ll also read about the barriers to care that transgender people frequently face and get advice on dealing with a health care system marked by cissexism.

Book Description :

Background/introduction: Locally there is a large transgender (trans) population. As part of a health inequalities initiative in 2012 a bespoke sexual health service for trans patients (Clinic-T) was set up. This included HCP training. Aim(s)/objectives: To evaluate the current service relating to care and management of trans patients within the Claude Nicol Centre. Methods: Online survey - emailed to all staff between February and March 2016.Results: 45 HCP completed the survey. Job roles were: Doctor 21/45(47%), Nurse 17/45(38%), Health Advisor 3/45(7%), HCA 1/45(2%), Admin/Reception staff 3/45(7%). 31/45(69%) of the respondents had been working in sexual health for at least 6 years. The majority of respondents, 36/44(82%), do not see patients during Clinic-T. However, 16/45(36%) see trans patients at least three monthly and 29/45(64%) see trans patients less frequently than every 6 months. 33/43(77%) of HCP did not feel confident about seeing trans patients in a clinical setting - specific aspects include: 21/42(50%) understanding sexual health needs, 35/43(81%) where to seek gender reassignment advice, 40/43(93%) seeking hormonal replacement therapy advice, 32/43(74%) addressing psychological issues, and 34/43(79%) providing additional support in the community. The majority of HCP 26/45(58%) would like further training to be delivered through small group teaching. Discussion/conclusion: The majority of HCP are not confident when approaching trans patients at work. With a significant number of HCP seeing trans patients in general clinics it is important to ensure that broader sexual health services are acceptable to the local trans population. Programmes of education are needed to underpin quality improvement.

Book Description :

Although transgender persons have been present in various societies throughout human history, it is only during the last several years that they have become widely acknowledged in our society and their right to quality medical care has been established. In the United States, endocrinologists have been providing hormonal therapy for transgender individuals for decades; however, until recently, there has been only limited literature on this subject, and non-endocrine aspects of medical care for transgender individual have not been well addressed in the endocrine literature. The goal of this volume is not only to address the latest in hormonal therapy for transgender individuals (including pediatric and geriatric age groups), but also to familiarize the reader with other aspects of transgender care, including primary and surgical care, fertility preservation, and the management of HIV infection. In addition to medical issues, psychological, social, ethical and legal issues pertinent to transgender individuals add to the complexities of successful treatment of these patients. A final chapter includes extensive additional resources for both transgender patients and providers. Thus, an endocrinologist providing care to a transgender person will be able to use this single resource to address most of the patient’s needs. While Transgender Medicine is intended primarily for endocrinologists, this book will be also useful to primary care physicians, surgeons providing gender-confirming procedures, mental health professionals participating in the care of transgender persons, and medical residents and students.

Book Description :

Learn what resources are needed for lesser-recognized LGBT health issues Most literature that explores LGBT health issues concentrates on HIV/AIDS while leaving research studies on other vital issues lacking. Current Issues in Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Health addresses this inadequacy by presenting a broad range of LGBT health issues from an interdisciplinary and mixed-method perspective. Leading experts present both quantitative and qualitative descriptions of health issues among various population groups, focusing on those topics poorly represented in present-day literature. This book is a strong start to fill in the blanks about unrealized health issues of LGBT individuals and offers insights into the resources needed to address them. Methods to assess sexual orientation and gender identity are not normally found in most population-based research. Because of the diversity within the relatively small LGBT population, research has been forced to generalize, making it less likely to effectively contribute to quality health issue data for these individuals. The research presented in Current Issues in Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Health takes particular care to specify how the orientation and sexual identity of study participants was measured. This book carefully mines previously unrevealed health disparities among LGBT populations across a broad spectrum of diseases—beyond the standard focus on HIV/AIDS. The most current and important studies are presented, including rare research on transgender health issues. The chapters are extensively referenced, and several include figures and tables to clarify and enhance understanding of the information. The wide range of topics in Current Issues in Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Health include: the inclusion of sexual orientation questions in research studies comparison of mental health issues between women of different sexual orientations mental health issues among men of different sexual orientations and HIV status in Australia the impact of sexual identity distress and social support in GLBT youth issues transgender youth health issues female-to-male (FTM) transexuals’ experiences accessing health care research on LBT domestic violence survivors health needs of male-to-female (MTF) transgenders of color Current Issues in Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Health is crucial, thought-provoking reading for researchers working in LGBT health, public health professionals working in community health and LGBT health, policymakers, advocates, public health and community health faculty, and students interested in LGBT health issues.

Book Description :

Over the last three decades, the visibility -- and public acceptance -- of self-identified lesbian women and gay men and bisexual and transgender individuals has increased dramatically, making it more important than ever to understand the dynamics of their relationships. This timely work, part of Volume 21 in the Review of Psychiatry series, offers compelling facts and insights in a concise yet comprehensive format, bringing together the latest research and clinical practice in this rapidly evolving field. Chapter 1 details normal adolescent development and the extra challenges imposed by the development of a sexual identity that is different from that of most of their peers, including the lack of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender role models. Chapter 2 presents a rare discussion about theoretical models (managing a concealable stigma, minority stress and resilience, and coping with multiple minority statuses) and empirical data on aging as a stigmatized sexual minority, including the similarities and differences of aging between the sexual minority communities and the heterosexual community and special issues in working with aging ethnic minority gay men, lesbians, and bisexual persons. Chapter 3 breaks new ground by detailing the expanding role of the psychiatrist or other mental health professional as forensic expert and therapist -- requiring not only an in-depth understanding of lesbian and gay mental health issues, but also the often-daunting task of encouraging and teaching judges and juries to better understand these issues as they relate to discriminatory laws in child custody/visitation, workplace harassment/other discrimination, domestic violence, and immigration/asylum. Chapter 4 covers both the three types of etiological theories on homosexuality presented in the scientific literature and an historical overview of clinical attitudes toward homosexuality, from early modern theories (Karl Ulrichs, Krafft-Ebing, and Freud) to the present day, reporting on some adverse side effects of sexual conversion treatment that have been either overlooked or ignored in the reparative therapy literature and raising important clinical and ethical concerns. Chapter 5 examines the public and professional evolution of thinking toward U.S. African race and toward sexual orientation with regard to the reevaluation of the psychiatric diagnosis and treatment of gender identity disorder. Among other topics, the author presents a fascinating discussion of differences between sexual orientation and gender (e.g., anatomical, social, hormonal, psychological, legal, or political), and distinctions between transgenderism and homosexuality, including an illuminating case example. Thought-provoking and informative, this compact volume will be welcomed by residents, clinicians, and students alike as they continue to look for ways to better differentiate health from pathology and successfully treat these remarkably diverse individuals.

Book Description :

There is an increasing awareness and visibility of transgender people, particularly in Europe and North America. Compared to the non-trans general population transgender people remain a vulnerable group with higher levels of mental health problems due to existing discrimination and victimization as well as lack of adequate treatment options and legal protection in most countries. This thesis consists of 5 studies to examine risk factors and clinical correlates of the treatment pathway of transgender people. The studies looked specifically at prevalence of transsexualism and mental health correlates, including Non-Suicidal Self-Injury (NSSI), body dissatisfaction and anxiety in transgender people as a population, but also as separate groups (young and older transgender people). An overall meta-analytical prevalence for transsexualism of 4.6 in 100,000 individuals was found; 6.8 for trans women and 2.6 for trans men, which suggests a sex ratio of trans females to trans males of 2.62 to 1. More importantly, time analysis found a clear increase in reported prevalence over the last 50 years, which highlights the need to plan for expansion of transgender health services and training and education for a future workforce in this field. A lifetime presence of Non-Suicidal Self-Injury (NSSI) of nearly half of all young transgender patients was founds and more than a quarter reported current NSSI. Risk factors for current and lifetime Non-Suicidal Self-Injury (NSSI) in young transgender people are being a trans male and having greater psychopathology. General psychopathology could be predicted by transphobic experiences, low self-esteem, and interpersonal problems. Transgender individuals exhibit greater body dissatisfaction than cisgender controls and, importantly, transgender men have comparable body dissatisfaction scores to cisgender men with an eating disorder. In relation to the roots of their body dissatisfaction, both transgender men and transgender women experience greatest dissatisfaction not only with gender-identifying body parts, but also with body shape and weight. Transgender men may be at particular risk for the development of maladaptive eating behaviours and other body image-related behaviours. The vast majority of older people presenting at transgender health services over the age of 50 years old are transgender females, with a sex ratio of transgender females to transgender males of 23.7:1. The use of cross-sex hormones prior to seeking treatment is widespread among transgender females and appears to be associated with psychological benefits. There are high rates of possible (32.8%) and probable (36.0%) current anxiety disorder in untreated transgender people attending a transgender health service. Transgender people have an almost 3-fold increased risk of probable anxiety disorder compared with the cisgender general population. Trans males show higher rates of possible and probable anxiety disorder (71.1%) than trans females. Low self-esteem and interpersonal functioning are predictors of anxiety disorder in the transgender population, which highlights the importance of psychological intervention and support.
