Today, transsexuality is a topic that is quickly moving toward the center of public attention, albeit only its more strident aspects. Udo Rauchfleisch has worked for many years now with people who feel they belong to the opposite sex. It is his conclusion that transsexuality is not simply a mental disease, but rather represents the entire phenomenal spectrum from mentally healthy to mentally ill. This is why he uses the term "transidentity." This volume studies the questions of how to prepare expert opinions on transsexuals, and how to support transsexuals during and after hormonal and operative treatments to prepare them to change their sex. It is addressed to experts from various disciplines concerned with transsexuals as well to transsexuals themselves and their relatives.
