Your Transition as Your Partner Transitions
by D. M. Maynard
Partners of transgender people may or may not remain in their relationship throughout their partner's transition. This unique self-help workbook was created for and focuses on the partners of these individuals by providing the support and guidance needed for partners to reflect upon and navigate the newly unexpected transitions in their lives.
Providing an essential tool that is currently missing, this book gives guidance and advice specifically designed for this situation, alongside activities, quizzes and personal anecdotes. By combining portions of the author's own journey-- as the partner of someone who began to transition after 17 years of being in their relationship-- with the experiences shared by those who attended her workshops, this workbook examines the unknowns, uncertainties, and possible grieving some partners experience throughout the transition process. With resources, a glossary and space for self-reflection, this workbook offers partners a safe haven to discover their own wants and needs and will be of interest to both couples and individual counselors.
