Intervention Effectiveness in Reducing Prejudice against Transsexuals
Case, Kim A.; Stewart, Briana
Journal of LGBT Youth, v10 n1-2 p140-158 2013
The transgender community encounters pervasive prejudice, discrimination, and violence, yet social science literature lacks research that focuses on reduction of antitransgender prejudice. This experimental study examined the effectiveness of three interventions aimed at decreasing negative attitudes toward transsexuals, correcting participants' beliefs in myths about transsexuality, and reducing their predicted discriminatory behaviors. Results revealed a significant decrease in negative attitudes and beliefs in myths. However, no individual intervention proved more effective than the others. The interventions led to no change in predicted discriminatory behaviors. (Contains 10 tables.)
