Statistical steps were performed using spss software version 21 and data were analyzed using Pearson correlation and simultaneous regression.
Results: The results of regression analysis showed that the best predictor of gender dysphoria in transgender women is the Communication (p<0.010) and General Functioning (p<0.012) of the family, and in transgender men, the best predictor of gender dysphoria was Communication (p<0.017), Affective Responsiveness (p<0.039), and Affective Involvement (p<0.035).
