Exploring how the essentialism of the gender binary impacts on clients of all genders, this ground-breaking book examines how historical, social and culturally gendered trauma emerges in clinical settings. Weaving together systemic ideas, autoethnography, narrative therapy and somatic experiencing, the book charts the history of the gender binary and its roots in colonialism, as well as the way this culture is perpetuated intergenerationally, and the impact this trauma has on all bodies, gender identities and experiences.

Featuring clinical vignettes, exercises and reflexive practices, this is an accessible and intersectional guide for professionals to develop their understanding of gender-derived trauma for supporting clients. Highlighting the importance of applying a trauma-informed approach in practice, this book provides insights as to how we can work towards collective healing, for future generations and for ourselves.

As a thought provoking critical text, Gender Trauma speaks to the need to see gender as a category complicit with, and indeed formed by, practices of colonisation. Iantaffi calls our attention to the multiple, intersecting ways in which gender shapes relationships, institutions, and individual practices. In so doing, Iantaffi creates a space for new ways of thinking about and relating to gender as a category. -- Professor Damien W. Riggs, Flinders University, Australia

Dr Alex Iantaffi is one of the smartest gender theorists I know. A compassionate clinician and a brilliant educator they have produced one of the most compelling books on gender diversity and human rights you will ever read. JKP has published a plethora of books on gender diversity in recent years. Dr Iantaffi's book on Gender Trauma deserves to be amongst the best of them. -- Dominic Davies, Founder & CEO, Pink Therapy

Dr. Iantaffi's book is a homage to our diversely gendered and courageously queer ancestors, a guidebook for those here on Earth working to recover and create healthy culture, and an act of service for those who have yet to return to a world that will be just a bit more inclusive and kind. -- Dr. Daniel Foor, author of Ancestral Medicine: Rituals for Personal and Family Healing

Deliveries in the UK seem to be pretty much back to normal since the 20th May 2021. We only send things first class and 99% are arriving in 1 - 2 working days.

International orders are still taking longer, due to different country lockdowns, the increase in online shopping and the reduction of flights carrying cargo and deliveries around the world. You should expect international orders to take longer than normal, although many are arriving on time. Some international orders take 2 weeks, some take 2 months. That's just the way of the world at the moment.

We use Royal Mail for deliveries with a tracking barcode. Once an item is with Royal Mail, we're not able to track it until it's been delivered/signed for. 

We can not be held responsible if your order does not arrive for a certain date.
