Providing new approaches for exploring gender identity and expression, this book is ideal for clinical practice with transgender and gender nonconforming/diverse clients. Importantly, it moves beyond the medical model to advance an understanding of transgender subjectivity as a natural variation of gender in humans. The book deepens understanding of the developmental trajectory of trans and gender non-conforming individuals over their lifespan, before and beyond transition, by offering new theories on gender. Drawing on theories from a range of different fields including psychoanalysis, philosophy, neuroscience, consciousness studies, trauma therapy, sex therapy, gender theory, disability studies and trans studies, it illustrates how informed clinical practice can recognise the complexity of gender identity and expression. With chapters on the understanding of core gender through the Free Energy Principle, the foundations of gender in consciousness, a gender algorithm, trauma, mirroring, and sexual functioning, this book works to provide a superior method of clinical practice that can better serve trans communities and our understanding of gender across the population.

A New Juvenile Justice System aims at nothing less than a complete reform of the existing system: not minor change or even significant overhaul, but the replacement of the existing system with a different vision. The authors in this volume—academics, activists, researchers, and those who serve in the existing system—all respond in this collection to the question of what the system should be. Uniformly, they agree that an ideal system should be centered around the principle of child well-being and the goal of helping kids to achieve productive lives as citizens and members of their communities. Rather than the existing system, with its punitive, destructive, undermining effect and uneven application by race and gender, these authors envision a system responsive to the needs of youth as well as to the community’s legitimate need for public safety. How, they ask, can the ideals of equality, freedom, liberty, and self-determination transform the system? How can we improve the odds that children who have been labeled as “delinquent” can make successful transitions to adulthood? And how can we create a system that relies on proven, family-focused interventions and creates opportunities for positive youth development? Drawing upon interdisciplinary work as well as on-the-ground programs and experience, the authors sketch out the broad parameters of such a system. Providing the principles, goals, and concrete means to achieve them, this volume imagines using our resources wisely and well to invest in all children and their potential to contribute and thrive in our society.

Art Therapy for Social Justice seeks to open a conversation about the cultural turn in art therapy to explore the critical intersection of social change and social justice. By moving the practice of art therapy beyond standard individualized treatment models, the authors promote scholarship and dialogue that opens boundaries; they envision cross disciplinary approaches with a focus on intersectionality through the lens of black feminism, womanism, antiracism, queer theory, disability studies, and cultural theory. In particular, specific programs are highlighted that re-conceptualize art therapy practice away from a focus on pathology towards "models of caring" based on concepts of self-care, radical caring, hospitality, and restorative practice methodologies. Each chapter takes a unique perspective on the concept of "care" that is invested in wellbeing. The authors push the boundaries of what constitutes art in art therapy, re-conceptualizing notions of care and wellbeing as an ongoing process, emphasizing the importance of self-reflexivity, and reconsidering the power of language and art in trauma narratives.

The first phase of this thesis project examines my experiences as a Queer clinician at Center on Halsted (COH), a Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) community center in Chicago, IL. A thirteen-week art-based reflection on my work as an art therapy intern at COH was documented in a series of twenty-five mixed media art pieces that were displayed in the School of the Art Institute of Chicago graduate art therapy exhibition, Art of Connection, in the SAIC Sullivan Galleries. An exhibition of work entitled The Great Refusal: Taking on New Queer Aesthetics was on view in the same space prior to the opening of Art of Connection. This exhibit featured artworks that were created by LGBTQ artists, referenced Queer culture and relationships, or otherwise challenged mainstream artistic practices. The perspectives presented in The Great Refusal inspired me to explore the potential of art making to connect the narratives of Queer artists, including myself and my clients at COH. The second phase of my project involved an ethnographic investigation of contemporary LGBTQ-identified artists. I interviewed and collected artwork from eight artists to study the role of art making in their lives and learn about their motivations for making work. A review of literature on Queer Theory, Queer Aesthetics, and counseling with LGBTQ individuals guides my understanding of the layers of oppression affecting the LGBTQ population, the importance of community building, and the role of creativity in the identity formation of Queer people. This review offers the foundation for a discussion of the overlap between the work done in my individual and group art therapy sessions at COH, my personal art practice, and the artworks created by LGBTQ artists. In my efforts to traverse the boundaries between the therapeutic and art worlds, I find that Queer-identified people can use art making, whether in therapy or outside it, to connect with themselves and each other by creating new spaces and inventing alternate methods to share their personal narratives, express their desires, and critique the cultures that tend to ostracize them.
