Abstract

Recent studies have shown that suicidality among transgender youth are 3.6 times more likely to report suicidal ideation and 3.2 times more likely to attempt suicide compared to cisgender youth. To alleviate the suicide rates among transgender youth, research suggests the need for family-based interventions. This case study explores the integration of structural family therapy and the Satir growth model to increase connection and support within the family, while also creating clear boundaries that are protective and growth-enhancing. This study provides a session by session overview of how the therapist integrated the models while working with the entire family unit.
