Praise For…

"Life is a journey of constant exploration. Throughout our lives, we explore destinations, relationships, occupations, diets, and so much more. In Katie Leikam's Gender Identity Journal, we are invited to explore our gender identity. This lesser traversed journey to explore and understand our gender identity can be an exciting, yet sometimes overwhelming experience. You are in good hands with your very own well-laid map of self-discovery." —Zander Keig, transgender social care advocate and NASW Social Worker of the Year

"Katie Leikam guides us through a wide-ranging exploration of gender identity, with excellent suggestions along the way for self-care and support. Gender Identity Journal is a valuable resource for individuals seeking a deeper understanding of their gender identity as well as for therapists assisting them." —Irwin Krieger, author of Counseling Transgender and Non-Binary Youth

"This is an invaluable resource for those who feel the need to examine their feelings about their gender behavior. Katie has created a workbook that will help you make explicit those emotions you implicitly feel about gender behaviors which are the result of your biological gender predisposition. She does this by stimulating your self-examination of past/present experiences and imaginings. These exercises will lead you to a conscious realization of which gender behaviors fit you best, regardless of cultural expectations. She offers coping skills for dealing with feelings of guilt and rejection in order to build your resilience, and she identifies self-care measures to sustain you. I recommend it highly." —Dana Jennett Bevan, PhD

"Gender Identity Journal is a must-have for anyone who is questioning their gender or wanting to further explore the depths of their gender identity. It's packed full of inspirational quotes and engaging tools to assist readers who want to explore their gender identity. I will be recommending it to my patients, regardless of age!" —Erin Everett NP-C, AAHIVS
