I’m not good with quick summaries, especially when it a summary of a summary of a metastudy, but this addresses your comment about society ostracizing them. It’s not wider society it’s friends and family. I’ve seen this with the transgender people I know. What hurts the most is family not accepting them; they are ostracized or if they are not completely shunned, members of the family do not use the transgendered person’s preferred name or pronouns. Finding community elsewhere, creating a family out of that community but it’s doesn’t totally make up when it’s mom, dad or siblings.
Resiliency factors and protective factors among transgender persons
The research studies have tried to explore the resiliency factors which are helping the transgender community to bounce back and continue living even with a number of hardships and adverse conditions in their day-to-day living. The transgender persons have overcome from the above-mentioned situations using at least one of the coping mechanisms or having certain personal qualities such as assertive communication, self-advocacy, spiritual coping, honesty, integrity, avoidance, physical or verbal aggression, help seeking, being future-oriented with having personal goals, being outspoken, strong, friendly, outgoing, independent, determination, etc. The transgender persons who have income of >10,000 Dollars and being educated at higher level, employed in the mainstream jobs other than sex work and begging, optimistic, having perceived social support from family, emotional stability, and child-related concerns have shown better self-esteem and resiliency level. Social support from family is found to be general protective factor which is associated with reduced risk for lifetime suicide attempts among transgender persons.
