"In these times, where queer and trans people are continually the
targets of violence, discrimination, and archaic public
accommodation policies, it is hopeful and necessary that we focus
on power and resilience. The Queer and Transgender Resilience
Workbook is a useful and refreshing guide to the possibilities
of restoration and transformation for queer and transgender

"We each have an opportunity to explore ourselves profoundly as we evolve in our lives as queer and trans people, and this workbook provides unique and engaging guidance. Enjoy exploring your resilient self!"
