Abstract
Youth identifying as trans* have historically been exposed to oppression that can lead to internalized transphobia and shame. Such abuse can negatively impact self-acceptance, a concept key to mental health. Additionally, research has shown mindfulness fosters self-acceptance, making effective training in mindfulness-based interventions important for counselor trainees working with trans* youth. This program will explore ways to train counseling students to use mindfulness based interventions with trans* youth to facilitate self-acceptance.
