dc.description.abstractThe Good Practice Guidelines for the Assessment and Treatment of Adults with Gender Dysphoria (Wylie et al., 2013) published in this issue of Sexual and Relationship Therapy are the Standards of Care for transgender people receiving support and medical care in the UK. These Guidelines provide clinicians with a framework to practice within and provide clients and patients with information as to what to expect from clinical services. The guide for general practitioners and other healthcare staff published last year reflected the care pathway patients and clients were receiving. The Good Practice Guidelines take one step further. This document sets out standards of care to adhere to with the aim to improve the quality of services for people with gender dysphoria as well as to strive towards a certain standardisation of care so that all clients and patients within a certain large geographical region receive a similar service. This must be seen as another positive development. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2016 APA, all rights reserved)en
