Survey: Trans* people and online support
- This just in from Irene Greene, an Applied Psychology student at University College Cork:
For my final year project I’m conducting research into the effect online support has on the well-being of transgender individuals.
Research in general populations regarding the effectiveness of online social support has found mixed results, but very little research has been carried out looking at the impact of social support on groups such as the transgender community.
We’re interested in examining whether online social support may positively affect the well-being of transgender individuals, as it may provide some people with a greater sense of support than they experience offline.
We hope that this study will lead to a better understanding of the impact of social support on the general well-being of members of the transgender community.
I have a short survey which should only take 15 minutes to complete. It is important for the study to get a large number of respondents in order to achieve reliable results.
If you are willing to take part, you can find the survey here.
