    Diane Ehrensaft’s most recent publication is The Gender Creative Child: Pathways for Nurturing and Supporting Chldren who Live outside Gender Boxes, New York: TheExperiment, 2016, with a foreword by Dr. Norman Spack.

    “The Gender Creative Child is an invaluable resource for families and practitioners wanting to understand the complexity and beauty of gender development and the value of affirmative care. I’m struck that Dr. Ehrensaft’s most revolutionary idea is also her most straightforward—if we really learn how to listen to our children, they will tell us what they need.”
    —Aron Janssen, MD, director and founder NYU Gender and Sexuality Service

    “The Gender Creative Child should be required reading for all therapists, pediatricians, and K-12 educators and for parents whose children express their gender differently from societal expectations. Diane Ehrensaft deftly shows that many trans and gender-nonconforming children can be identified from a young age and how critical it is to provide support to them.”
    —Genny Beemyn, PhD, trans educator and coauthor of The Lives of Transgender People

    “Dr. Ehrensaft explains gender and children like no one can. She equips adults to understand and support gender-expansive children the way they deserve to be. This book is the newest must-have for every LGBTQ library and a must-read for every adult with a child in their life.”
    —Lori Duron, author of Raising My Rainbow
