Mark Hommes

assistant professor clinical psychology

Mark Hommes examines the effects of (self)stigma, social support and coping on the wellbeing of transgender individuals. He does so before, during and after gender reaffirming treatment (transition) thus exploring the effects of such a treatment on the lives of the transgender person, their families and their environment. Through studying these experiences (both from quantitative data and direct personal experience) his main interest is now shifting towards the question ‘what makes gender reaffirming treatment successful in enhancing happiness?’.
