Standard: $32.00
Members: $22.00

Description

Description:
The counseling experiences of 13 transgender and gender nonconforming individuals were examined via semi-structured, in-depth interviews. Using multiple standards of trustworthiness (e.g., member checking, negative case analysis), researchers analyzed each interview from an interpretative phenomenological analytic framework. Four main themes were identified: (a) mental health professional selection process, (b) trans-affirmative approach, (c) trans-negative approach, and (d) support systems beyond counseling. Implications for implementing culturally responsive TGNC affirmative counseling, TGNC sensitive counselor training, and social justice oriented research are discussed.



Objectives:

  1. Examine transgender and gender-nonconforming clients’ counseling experiences.
  2. Explore factors that support culturally responsive affirmative counseling for transgender and gender-nonconforming clients.
