dc.description.abstractThere is currently little research on the phenomena of empowerment for non-binary transgender clients in therapy. In fact, many non-binary clients report negative experiences with regard to the mental health field, including inadequate and refusal of care. This is concerning, given that the majority of transgender individuals will seek therapy at least once during their lifetime. Additionally, transgender individuals who are seeking medical treatment, such as hormone injections and/or gender affirmation surgery, must participate in mental health services in order to receive referrals. The purpose of this feminist phenomenological study was to investigate the ways in which non-binary transgender clients have been, and can be, empowered through therapy. A total of eight participants within the U.S. were interviewed about their experiences of empowerment while in therapy. Primary categories included 1) Clinician-Related Variables that Enhanced Empowerment, 2) Client Related Outcomes Resulting from Empowerment, and 3) Advice for Counselors.eng
