In Transformed, Parenting Your Non-Conforming Child with Pride, Wendy Jones uses personal stories and clinical data to show you how to support your gender-diverse children, while taking care of yourself along the way.
“With love, compassion, support, and encouragement Wendy Jones candidly shares her experience as a mom of transgender youth. As an LCSW who counsels LGBTQ families, she offers a unique perspective that provides expertise and wisdom experienced by few. Additionally, Wendy weaves in first-person stories from other families which ultimately provides a pathway in a relatable and sensitive manner.”
-Jeanette Jennings, mother of Jazz Jennings and LGBTQIA+ rights advocate and spokesperson
As a gender therapist and mom to a transgender child, Wendy felt there was a strong need in the world to support parents of trans kids. She knew that her own journey was challenging at first, and finding support wasn't always an easy thing. As she's been working with transgender people and their parents over the past five years, she's come to find that the parents are oftentimes scared and feel alone in the process of accepting their child's gender identity.
About the Author
As a gender therapist and mom to a transgender child, I felt there was a strong need in the world to support parents of trans kids.
I know that my own journey was challenging at first, and finding support wasn't always an easy thing. As I've been working with transgender people and their parents over the past five years, I've come to find that the parents are oftentimes scared and feel alone in the process of accepting their child's gender identity.
Due to the time constraints of therapy, I wanted to find a way to reach more parents with my own hard-earned strength and wisdom. Writing seemed to be just the right medium to accomplish this goal. Books were one of the main ways that our family got the necessary knowledge to start our gender journey eight years ago. However, there aren't many books out there that offer both lived/personal and clinical experiences.
I hope that my book can reach parents around the world that are in need of education, support, and encouragement. My overreaching goal is to help trans kids by helping their parents and to be a strong positive force in today's gender revolution.
