Stigma refers to societally-deemed inferiority associated with a circumstance, behavior, status, or identity. It manifests internally, interpersonally, and structurally. Decades of research indicate that all forms of stigma are associated with heightened risk for mental health problems (e.g., depression, PTSD, suicidality) in stigmatized youth (i.e...

Asian American (AsA) youth comprise a large and fast-growing proportion of the U. S. population. AsA youth have comparable and sometimes higher rates of mental health concerns compared to White youth, but are significantly less likely to access mental health services. Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) was originally designed by and for White and W...

Many youth with mental health needs cannot access treatment, with multiply-marginalized youth, such as sexual minority youth of Color (SMYoC), experiencing both structural and identity-related barriers to care. The COVID-19 pandemic threatens to exacerbate multi-level treatment access barriers facing SMYoC youth nationwide. However, little large-sc...
Article
Transgender and gender diverse (TGD) adolescents and their caregivers have highlighted the dearth of providers trained in gender-affirming practices as a critical treatment barrier, yet little is known about their specific experiences in mental health therapy. The present study sought to elucidate these experiences. Qualitative description was empl...

Background: Relative to cisgender adolescents, transgender adolescents experience greater interpersonal trauma, depression, and suicidality. Structural transphobia (societal conditions constraining transgender people’s rights/wellbeing) may exacerbate associations between trauma and poor mental health for this group. Indeed, a recent study found mo...

Transgender and gender diverse youth (TGD youth; i.e., children and adolescents who do not identify with their birth-assigned sex) face a variety of traumas and adversities, including those explicit to their gender identity and/or expression (hereafter “gender”; e.g., gender-related victimization, caregiver rejection). However, few studies or clini...

We examined whether cultural sexism (county- and state-level gender attitudes) moderates the efficacy of psychotherapies by re-analyzing data from a previous meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials of youth psychotherapy for the most commonly targeted problems (depression, anxiety, conduct, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder; 2,698 effe...

Method We analyzed a subset of studies from a previous meta-analysis of five decades of youth psychotherapy randomized controlled trials.

Research consistently links internalizing/externalizing symptomatology in Black youth to discrimination (Benner et al., 2018), with a near exclusive focus on interpersonal racism (Williams, 2018). Despite recent calls (Trent et al., 2019), few studies have explored anti-Black racism at the macro level, including if and how cultural racism (i.e., a...

Objective: Mounting evidence indicates that transgender and gender diverse (TGD) youth experience significant mental health inequities and poorer psychotherapy outcomes relative to cisgender youth (Hollinsaid et al., 2020). Emerging research suggests that this may be partially attributable to structural transphobia (i.e., discriminatory state laws/...

Introduction: Schools have become a primary setting for providing mental health care to youths in the U.S. School-based interventions have proliferated, but their effects on mental health and academic outcomes remain understudied.

Gay men experience violence at disproportionate rates. This disparity is driven by state-sanctioned structural violence, homophobia, and problematic masculine norms. The present chapter reviews the historical legacies of violence against gay men and provides an overview of research on current prevalence rates. The authors introduce multiple theoret...

We examined whether cultural sexism (county- and state-level gender attitudes) moderates the efficacy of psychotherapies by re-analyzing data from a previous meta-analysis of youth psychotherapy randomized controlled trials (4,233 effect sizes (ESs) from 319 studies; N=20,513; ages 4-18). Higher cultural sexism was associated with lower ESs for stu...

Gender minority (GM) youths’ risk for mental health problems is partially attributable to barriers they face accessing appropriate mental health services. GM youths and their caregivers have highlighted the dearth of providers trained in gender-affirming care as a critical barrier to treatment access and engagement. Provider-focused training is a p...

Relative to their cisgender peers, gender minority (GM) adolescents—whose gender identity and/or expression differs from their birth-assigned sex (Turban & Ehrensaft, 2018)—are at elevated risk for internalizing psychopathology (Becerra-Culqui et al., 2018). This disparity may be partially attributable to their exposure to adverse childhood experie...

[In press in Evidence-Based Practice in Child and Adolescent Mental Health] Despite great advancements in the development of evidence-based treatments (EBTs) for youth mental health problems, few EBTs have been adopted by or successfully implemented in schools. This is of concern, as schools are the most common entry point for youth mental health...

School context serves as a testing ground for exploring social relationships and satisfying needs for connection and affirmation, but often includes feelings of rejection. With a diverse high school sample (n = 645; 55% female; 61% White, 18% African American, 10% Latino, 10% Asian American, 1% Multiracial), patterns of experiences with marginaliza...

In contrast to the focus on short-term, extrinsic goals in our society (e.g., wealth, prestige), positive youth development scholars have highlighted the need for parents and schools to help youths cultivate and plan for long-term, intrinsic, and meaningful goals (i.e., envisioning a meaningful future), arguing that envisioning a meaningful future...

In the context of widespread media coverage of economic problems, un- and under-employment, and overwhelming student loan debt, youth are making sense of the prospects of getting a job and value of education. Further, they are assessing the implications of the job market in curtailing or enhancing their future success. School-based and familial rel...
