About this Textbook

LGBT-Parent Families is the first handbook to provide a comprehensive examination of this underserved area. Reflecting the nature of this issue, the volume is notably interdisciplinary, with contributions from scholars in psychology, sociology, human development, family studies, gender studies, sexuality studies, legal studies, social work, and anthropology. Additionally, scholarship from regions beyond the U.S. including England, Australia, Canada, and South Africa is presented. In addition to gender and sexuality, all contributors address issues of social class, race, and ethnicity in their chapters.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“LGBT-Parent Families: Innovations in Research and Implications for Practice edited by Abbie Goldberg and Katherine Allen is a cohesive and thorough collection of what is known about lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender (LGBT) parents and their families. … an excellent resource for graduate students and professors, as well as for clinicians and consultants working with LGBT-parent families. … the chapters in this volume would be excellent resources for students learning to critically evaluate scholarly work, as the authors very thoughtfully do this.” (Richard Niolon, PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. 58 (26), June, 2013)

"Professors Goldberg and Allen have assembled a group of top-notch researchers and scholars with expertise on a vast array of topics relevant to sexual and gender minority parents and families. The result is a handbook that addresses the current state of the science, including what we know and what we have yet to learn about these increasingly common family forms. Researchers, teachers, service providers, attorneys, and policy makers will want to have this book on their shelf." (Gregory M. Herek, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology, University of California, Davis)

“This first-rate handbook provides a comprehensive, astute, and accessible view of LGBT-parent families. With contributions from an interdisciplinary and international group of leading scholars, this volume covers every contemporary topic concerning LGBT families, including transgender parenting and LGBTQ youth with LGBTQ parents. Co-editors Drs. Goldberg and Allen have done an outstanding job in assembling experts to present overviews of the research and suggest applications for clinical work, policy, and advocacy. I highly recommend that this book be included in college and post-graduate social science courses on family life. This manual is essential reading for all clinicians.”  (Nanette Gartrell, MD, Williams Institute Visiting Distinguished Scholar, UCLA School of Law, Principal Investigator, U.S. National Longitudinal Lesbian Family Study)
