Em Matsuno: Em Matsuno, PhD (they/them) is a postdoctoral fellow in clinical psychology at Palo Alto University. Dr. Matsuno’s research goals are two-fold: 1) to understand the minority stressors and resilience factors that trans and nonbinary people (TNB) experience and 2) to develop and test interventions to reduce minority stressors and/or increase resilience factors for TNB people. They are currently a co-investigator on three multi-year research grants that aim to evaluate the effectiveness of interventions to support the mental health and wellbeing of trans people. For their dissertation, Dr. Matsuno developed and pilot tested an online intervention to increase supportive behaviors among parents of transgender youth and received the Roy Scrivner grant from the American Psychological Foundation to conduct a larger efficacy study of the intervention.
