dc.descriptionAn Empirically Supported Treatment Case Study
dc.description.abstractMeyer’s (2003) extension of the Minority Stress Model highlights the impact of social experiences, primarily stigma, on identity formation and self-esteem in sexual and gender minority (SGM) groups. With the appropriate tools and coping strategies that target the development of resilience, SGM clients can respond to future stress in adaptive ways that encourage self-affirmation and acceptance rather than suppression or concealment. To facilitate growth, this case study developed a novel integrated treatment combining two affirmative care approaches. The objective was to decrease perceptions of stress and interpretations of social rejection, while working to increase resilience skills dedicated to differing realms of experience (e.g., intrapersonal, cognitive, interpersonal, and behavioral) while identifying opportunities for social support. Primary treatment goals include increasing gender identification stability via cognitive restructuring, while increasing resilience-based coping within a demi-bisexual young adult client within the first year of questioning their gender identity. With progress measures supporting positive therapy outcomes, preliminary evidence supports the continued development and empirical investigation of this resilience-based integrated treatment.
