The Hungarian Psychological Association aims to adapt the American Psychological Association's Guidelines for Psychological Practice with Transgender and Gender Nonconforming People and the Guidelines for Practice for Psychological Practice With Lesbian, Gay and Bisexual Clients. We see it as immensely important due to misconcepts, lack of knowledge and prejudice that we can observe not only in the general population but also amongst psychology students and practitioners. In Hungary we have to witness a backlash regarding attitudes towards study and issues regarding gender. There are certain discourses that deny basic concepts of gender and make LGBT people invisible. Our goal is to publish the guidelines so that there will be more accessible information on this very important topic.
