About the Book
Book description

Resilience is a key ingredient for psychological health and wellness. Packed with evidence-based activities and exercises, The Queer and Transgender Resilience Workbook makes years of research on resilience accessible to queer and transgender adults. This book teaches readers to challenge internalized negative messages, handle stress, embrace who they are, remove obstacles from their life, and ultimately build a life that matters in a world still filled with micro-aggressions and discrimination. ebook icon
