Riboli G., Nese, M., Brighetti, G., Caselli, G., Sassaroli, S., & Borlimi, R. (2022). Network Analysis of the psychological distress in non-binary young adults: Implications for Counselors. Journal of LGBTQ Issues in Counseling

This study presents an analysis of the psychological distresses commonly affecting non-binary young adults. An online questionnaire was used to collect data from a sample of non-binary young adults on the most common risk factors and psychological symptoms reported in prevailing scientific literature. A network analysis was carried out to highlight the reciprocal interconnections between the dimensions considered. Depression, anxiety, interpersonal sensitivity, and body dissatisfaction emerged as key elements of distress. Counselors can use the reciprocal interconnections between dimensions in their assessment and treatment of non-binary people.
