What we are up to.

Current Research

Trans Psychotherapy Study

We are conducting a randomized controlled trial of psychotherapy with TNB clients to understand more about the experiences of TNB individuals in psychotherapy.  Results of this study will inform mental health care providers of best practices with TNB clients.

Trans Youth and Family study

We interviewed TNB youth and their caregivers to understand their familial experiences.  We are analyzing the interviews for concordance (agreement) and discordance (disagreement) among family members.  The findings will inform care for TNB youth and their families.  We are also analyzing the emotions experienced by the youth during their process of coming out to their families.

Meta-analysis of Anxiety and Depression in TNB Individuals

We are conducting a meta-analysis of studies reporting anxiety and depression among TNB individuals.  Results will help clarify the impact of minority stress on well-being among TNB individuals, and inform future approaches to treating anxiety and depression in TNB clients.

Nonbinary Identity Study

We interviewed individuals who identify as nonbinary  to understand their experiences related to minority stress, coming out, and coping.
