Transgender and Gender Diverse (TGD) Trauma & Resilience

The Influence of Gender Identity-Related Discrimination on Adaptation Following Exposure to Potentially Traumatic Events among Transgender and Gender Diverse (TGD) Persons

2018-2019 (PI: Valentine)

This study aims to examine psychological adaptation processes following exposure to transgender-related discrimination and potentially traumatic events among TGD persons. The mixed-methods study design includes structured clinical interview data based on the administration of the CAPS-5 for PTSD, self-report questionnaires related to minority stress factors (discrimination, violence), and qualitative data from individual interviews. Findings will support the development of assessment and conceptualization guidelines, and future treatment development.
