Response to President Trump Tweet Barring Transgender Individuals From Serving in the Military

In light of President Trump’s July 26, 2017, tweet stating transgender individuals will not be allowed to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military, therapists should be aware of, and sensitive to, the effects that anti-trans prejudice and discrimination may have on Transgender and Gender Nonconforming (TGNC) clients. As noted by the American Psychological Association’s Guidelines, and recognized by CAMFT, TGNC people face discrimination and prejudice in multiple settings in a culture that often devalues their inherent contributions to society.
