Today’s youth struggle with difficult questions of sexual identity. How can a youth worker offer wise care and counsel on such a controversial and confusing subject? Mark Yarhouse, Director of the Institute for the Study of Sexual Identity, writes to equip youth ministers so they can faithfully navigate the topic of sexual identity in a way that is honest, compassionate, and accessible. Reframing the focus away from the culture wars, Yarhouse introduces readers to the conversation beginning with the developmental considerations in the formation of sexual identity—all of which occurs in the teen years. He offers practical and helpful ways to think about people who experience same-sex attraction. Sections of the book are also dedicated to helping parents respond to their children and teens who struggle with questions of sexual idenity, as well as how youth ministry can become more relevant in the lives of youth who are navigating these issues.

Modern Psychopathologies is addressed to students and mental health professionals who want to sort through contemporary secular understandings of psychopathology in relation to a Christian worldview. Written by well-known and respected scholars, this book provides an introduction to a set of disorders along with overviews of current research on etiology, treatment and prevention. Prior chapters explore the classification of disorders in historic pastoral care and contemporary mental health care. The authors explain the biological and sociocultural foundations of mental illness, and reflect on the relation between psychopathology and the Christian understanding of sin. Modern Psychopathologies is a unique and valuable resource for Christians studying psychology and counseling or providing counseling services, pastoral care, Christian healing ministries or spiritual direction. The revised second edition is fully updated according to DSM-V and ICD-10. The authors have expanded the analysis to include problems associated with trauma, gender, addiction and more. Though fully capable of standing on its own, the book is a useful companion volume to Modern Psychotherapies by Stanton L. Jones and Richard E. Butman.

The field of human sexuality is one of ever-increasing complexity, particularly for Christian therapists and psychologists seeking to be faithful to Scripture, informed by science and sensitive to culture. In Sexuality and Sex Therapy, Mark Yarhouse and Erica Tan offer a survey and appraisal of this field from a Christian perspective, which grounds sex therapy in the biblical affirmation of physicality and the redemptive purposes of human life. Integrating the latest research within a Christian worldview, the authors explore sexual dysfunctions as well as various clinical issues and treatments. Not only have Yarhouse and Tan written a standard resource for Christian therapists and counselors, but they also challenge the church to talk more honestly and openly about the blessing of human sexuality.

Gender Dysphoria: Understanding the Symptoms and Treating Gender Dysphoria Researcher and author, Michelle Serena tackles the controversial subject of transgenderism and gender dysphoria in her new eBook, Gender Dysphoria. With all the recent information in the news on transgender people this book comes at the right time. I Am Cait, the new show about the life of Caitlyn Jenner as she transitions into her new world separate from "Bruce Jenner" is a startling reminder that this dysphoria is not only real, but that individuals who are going through this condition have options and have a bright life in front of them when they find self-acceptance and a community of supportive friends. Gender Dysphoria is not a comprehensive book, nor a substitution for medical advice. It is a guide for family and friends who are curious about the subject and need to get a handle on what is going on with someone they love who is transgender. It is also a helpful book for school-aged people who may have to report on transgender studies or even to better understand their fellow students. The book helps the reader determine what is transgenderism, the possible biological reasons for it, treatments that are possible, and the various attributes of the condition. Readers will find useful information on the topic, and hopefully receive the type of understanding that will enable the transgender peoples in their life to have a point of departure for positive discussion. The eBook discusses male-to-female transgenders, female-to-male, and the hormonal and surgical options that many of them will undertake to find some relief from their condition. It also goes into the risks associated with the various treatment options, and for this reason is also a good resource for family members who have been asked to provide emotional support to the transgender person who is considering hormone therapy and possible Sexual Reasssignment Surgery (SRS).
