Course By: Tim Grigsby, PhD

Content By: Valentine, S. E., & Shipherd, J. C. (2018). A systematic review of social stress and mental health among transgender and gender non-conforming people in the United States. Clinical Psychology Review, 66, 24-38.

Course Description: Sexual and gender minority groups are more likely to report mental health problems, such as depression and anxiety, compared to their cisgender heterosexual peers. Researchers found that exposure to social stressors, including stress and discrimination, contribute to mental health problems in transgender and non-gender conforming (TNGC) adults. Increasing social support, community connectedness, and effective coping strategies can attenuate the risk for mental illness in TNGC adults. Furthermore, mental health professionals applying evidence-based treatment should assess social stressors and should consider how discrimination, stigma, and bias contribute to one’s mental health status.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Describe three mental health problems identified in TNGC adults associated with exposure to discrimination, stigma, and bias events
  2. Identify the three processes of the Minority Stress Theory that explain how sexual and gender minority groups are exposed to stress
  3. Explain one community- and one person-level factor that can reduce the impact of social stress on the mental health of TNGC adults

Course Outline:

  • Read and understand A systematic review of social stress and mental health among transgender and gender non-conforming people in the United States
  • Review the Course Description and Learning Objectives
  • Reflect on the relationship between social stress and mental health in minority populations and strategies to prevent adverse mental health outcomes as discussed in the accompanying article
  • Work through the post-test questions; keep in mind that answer selections should be derived from the respective article
