This chapter reviews the research evidence on the effectiveness of attending to clients’ gender identity in psychotherapy. It begins with definitions and measures of gender identity and provides clinical examples. A literature search did not yield studies that fit the authors’ search criteria; thus meta-analyses were not conducted. Instead, the authors conducted a content analysis of the 10 qualitative and quantitative studies on psychotherapy with transgender individuals. The chapter concludes by highlighting the limitations of the research base, describing diversity considerations, and recommending therapeutic practices that attend to gender, gendered systems of power, oppression, and privilege.
