Summary "Youth are coming out as gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgendered at increasingly younger ages.
This burgeoning population of sexual minority youth, along with their families, is looking for help from therapists in order to manage the stresses of late childhood and adolescence. Nurturing Queer Youth provides therapists and other mental health professionals with the insight and guidance needed to assist these families.
By integrating complex ideas about sex, gender, and identity, Stone Fish and Harvey show how to appreciate the gift that queer youth have to offer - not despite their identity, but because of it."--Jacket.
