We frequently collaborate with Dr. Zachary DuBois, a biocultural anthropologist at the University of Oregon. Our joint projects have focused on: prejudice towards transgender and gender diverse people; validation of a scale measuring gender embodiment for trans-masculine people; minority stress and resilience for transgender and gender diverse people.
Ongoing projects with Trans Collaborations are focused on developing and validating affirming mental health practices with transgender and gender diverse clients. We also currently have a grant under review to implement community based, peer-led support initiatives for managing stress post-COVID for transgender communities.
