Abstract

KEY POINTS

  • Research evaluating the effectiveness of group psychotherapy interventions with transgender and gender nonconforming (TGNC) clients has yet to be conducted.
  • Counseling competencies, standards of care, and practice guidelines are available to assist mental health professionals working with TGNC clients within group settings.
  • Mental health professionals should adopt an affirmative approach to the practice of group psychotherapy with TGNC clients.
  • Integrating psychoeducation, affect regulation, cognitive coping, and problem-solving skills may be beneficial for TGNC clients receiving group psychotherapy.
