Brief Summary

Presentation by Dr Elin Skagerberg for the Trans* Emerging Trends Conference 2014 giving the results of an audit on young patients at the GIDS service in London.

Description from YouTube

Dr Elin Skagerberg presents the findings from an audit on demographic variables and associated difficulties in 218 children and adolescents, with features of gender dysphoria, referred to the Gender Identity Development Service in London during a one-year period. Data were extracted from patient files (ie referral letters, clinical notes and clinician reports). The most commonly reported associated difficulties were bullying, low mood/depression and self harming. There was a gender difference on some of the associated difficulties with reports of self harm and abuse being more common in the natal females and Autism Spectrum Conditions being more common in the natal males. The findings also show that most of the difficulties seems to increase with age. Findings regarding demographic variables, gender dysphoria, sexual orientation and family features are reported and limitations and implications of the audit are discussed.
