I'm pleased to share with you a new online resource developed by the LGBTQ+ Psychology Research Team at UMass Boston to help transgender, non-binary, and gender diverse individuals heal from the wounds of transphobia.
The Transphobia Healing Project exercises consist of an initial survey, then three days of online expressive writing exercises, and a follow-up survey a month later. The associated research study asks participants to select a personal experience of transphobia that is causing lingering distress, and explores healing through expressive writing prompts. The Transphobia Healing Project is at no cost to participants and can be completed at home. It’s designed to be accessible for trans-identified people who might find it expensive or difficult to locate other affirmative supports.
