Mental Health and Self-Worth in Socially Transitioned Transgender Youth

OPEN Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry | 25 Jan 2017

L Durwood, KA McLaughlin and KR Olson
Abstract
Social transitions are increasingly common for transgender children. A social transition involves a child presenting to other people as a member of the “opposite” gender in all contexts (e.g., wearing clothes and using pronouns of that gender). Little is known about the well-being of socially transitioned transgender children. This study examined self-reported depression, anxiety, and self-worth in socially transitioned transgender children compared with 2 control groups: age- and gender-matched controls and siblings of transgender children.
