This study presents a training program developed with eight transgender youths who experienced transphobic episodes. Two focus groups were conducted and the 14-Item Resilience Scale was administered to evaluate training effectiveness in improving resilience. The intervention followed an empowerment, peer-group-based methodology. Three themes were identified: identity affirmation, self-acceptance, and group as support. A three-waves repeated measures ANOVA confirmed an increase in resilience levels. Suggestions for clinical practice and social policies are discussed.

Abstract

This study presents a training program developed with eight transgender youths who experienced transphobic episodes. Two focus groups were conducted and the 14-Item Resilience Scale was administered to evaluate training effectiveness in improving resilience. The intervention followed an empowerment, peer-group-based methodology. Three themes were identified: identity affirmation, self-acceptance, and group as support. A three-waves repeated measures ANOVA confirmed an increase in resilience levels. Suggestions for clinical practice and social policies are discussed.
