<< Return to the Virtual URS Main Page

Faculty mentor: Lisa Diamond

The present study examines the role of gender minority stressors (negative expectations, internalized transphobia, and nondisclosure) on the psychological distress of transgender and gender diverse via the mediator of rumination. Measured are the outcome variables of depression, social anxiety, and perceived stress. Results supported a mediation model (both full and partial) of rumination as a predictor of psychological distress in the presence of gender minority stressors.
