A self-help workbook for trans and non-binary people implementing Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
Sometimes it is difficult to identify and express our genuine gender identity. When we don't fit the ideal, the gender role, or the social script, we can feel trapped in ourselves. This "stuck" feeling is often reinforced by intrusive thoughts, mental rigidity, and self-judgement. Where do you even begin? Non-binary counsellor, Alex Stitt, lays the foundations for addressing these feelings with reflective exercises and activities rooted in acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) that help you understand what gender is, the spectrum of different gender identities, how to identify and accept your gender, coming out, self-actualization and much more. This interactive and humanizing workbook will help you identify your values so you can accept and embody what's most important to you in your gender exploration.
Alex Stitt is a non-binary author and licensed mental health counsellor who specialises in LGBTQ+ self-actualization. He is a regular contributor to Psychology Today and has previously published ACT for Gender Identity. Alex lives in Hawaii, USA.
