Therapeutic Conversations with Queer Youth is for practitioners who seek culturally responsive, socially-just ways of engaging queer youth in conversations that evoke imagination, provoke possibility, and honor the courageous resistance and arresting inventiveness of their young clients. The first therapy book that focuses on work with youth who construct queer identities (as differentiated from essentialized gay or lesbian identities), it s also the first to draw on queer theory and constructionist philosophy to inform practice with queer youth. Case vignettes and reflective exercises suitable for classroom use are provided through the commentary of five queer youth who served as cultural consultants to the research and writing of the book."
The book is a summary of the emotional rights of children. It outlines the rights of children, explains how they can be upheld by teachers, parents, and others who care for children, and gives examples of emotional education in practice. (The book is an antidote to the Tiger Mother school of thought.)
