This timely and sensible book seems to me to be a model of what a casebook should be. It is clear without being simple. It is relatively brief. It embodies good listening to patients. It is scientifically up-to-date and well written and edited. It provides reasonably detailed and thoughtful examples across a solid group of major psychiatric diagnoses -- as well as across a few psychiatric and social categories other than diagnoses -- and examples of integrated, educated, and helpful biopsychosocial consideration and treatment of people. I recommend this book to all psychiatrists, young and old, and to our mental health colleagues and students, particularly, but not limited to, those who are actively or might potentially work with LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) patients or clients. * Lawrence Hartmann, M.D., The American Journal of Psychiatry * With this casebook, psychiatry finally finds itself walking toward -- to meet and understand -- the LGBT experience. The editors do a wonderful job of covering this rapidly changing cultural topography, ranging from more recent changes, such as the repeal of "don't ask don't tell," to the ongoing national debate concerning marriage equality, with its resulting legal uncertainties. Drs. Levounis, Drescher, and Barber cover the significant ground yet to be gained and address how this affects our clients and their families. As such, this book is a needed addition to help therapists deal with LGBT-related issues. * Genevieve Yancey, M.D., The American Journal of Psychiatry * The variety and detail of the cases provide a living palette of LGBT experiences, one that offers a practical guide for the clinician rather than merely offering a theoretical framework for interaction with LGBT patients This volume should have broad appeal for all health care professionals given that it is difficult to imagine a clinician who will not at some point have LGBT patients or patients whose lives are touched by LGBT individuals. It should be required reading for trainees such as psychiatric residents. * James Krajeski, M.D., M.P.A., Journal of Psychiatric Practice March 2013 *
