About this book

Sexual Orientation in Child and Adolescent Health Care serves as a resource for child health care professionals including pediatricians, family physicians, nurses, pediatric psychologists, child and adolescent psychiatrists, and social workers. The issues of sexuality and sexual orientation now generate great interest among those who treat children. This volume describes the effects of stigmatization on non-heterosexual physicians, patients, and students, and discusses a variety of clinically relevant topics including the development of sexual orientations, children of gay or lesbian parents, young children with gender atypical behavior, and the healthcare needs of gay and lesbian adolescents. The last two chapters describe methods for improvement in medical education and medical care, and provide extensive resources available to professionals and consumers.

Reviews

From the reviews:
"The practical recommendations offered by Perrin will make her book valuable not only to pediatricians, but also to professionals who evaluate medical school curriculums and supervise residents. Sexual Orientation in Child and Adolescent Health Care will surely help health care professionals to embrace their homosexual patients and families and will educate those who have been unaware of the needs and experiences of a small, but nonetheless important, segment of the population."
(New England Journal of Medicine, 348:6, February 2003)
"In its writing, Perrin beautifully exemplifies the pediatrician engaged in matters of social justice[...] In general, the book is well written, easy to read, and ambitious in its scope. It will be a useful resource for medical students, residents, and clinicians looking for a practical synopsis of an ever-expanding body of information."
(Gary Remafedi, MD, MPH, University of Minnesota in Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine, 157, March 2003)
"This is a well researched and written book and I recommend it to clinicians who care for children, young people and their families, as well as for medical educators who can influence curricula."
(Professor Doris Young, University of Melbourne, VIC in Australian Family Physician, 32:1/2, Jan/Feb 2003)
"Her book comprehensively documents the current deficiencies in the field, integrates research within clinical observations, and offers incisive theoretical and practical suggestions to aid pediatric health care professionals in serving the needs of their young homosexual patients, as well as the needs of children of gay or lesbian parents[....] The practical recommendations offered by Perrin will make her book valuable not only to pediatricians, but also to professionals who evaluate medical school curriculums and supervise residents."
(Esther D. Rothblum, Ph.D., University of Vermont in New England Journal of Medicine, 348:6, February 2003)
