Clinicians and rehabilitation specialists in the Department of Defense (DoD) and Veterans Affairs (VA) face many legal and administrative problems when providing psychosocial rehabilitation services for transgender clients. This chapter summarizes the public laws and ethics in DoD and VA that impact the lives of transgender service members and veterans and guide the treatment that practitioners can provide. Clinicians not only must be aware of regulations but also must lead agencies in educating military and veterans about transgender identities and gender variance. Laws and practice guidelines are changing, influencing psychosocial interventions. This chapter provides guidance for clinicians who want to work with transgender service members and veterans.
