by Humphrey, Amy, Psy.D., The Chicago School of Professional Psychology, 2015, 146; 3700438
Abstract (Summary)

The transgendered community has become more widely recognized and discussed in recent years, however our understanding of the lived experience of transgendered individuals is still underdeveloped. This research aims to increase our understanding of the experiences of transgendered individuals, while also providing suggestions for mental health practitioners who work with transgender clients. Previous research has suggested social support improves resiliency to mental health problems (Grossman, D'Augelli, & Frank, 2011). This research examines the effect a trans individuals transition has on their significant relationships through a qualitative research design. Four individuals with varying gender identities were interviewed for this research, and thirteen distinct themes were ascertained through analysis of the transcripts.
