  • Could leave criteria as they are but make them more stringent.But, still the problem of dichotomy disregarding the wide variety of gender identity related phenomena clinicians encounter.-KEEPING Dx of some sort allows insurance coverage of reassignment surgery
  • Insurance Coverage problemsOr….-Change GID from psychological to neurologic or neurocognitive disorder -Remove GIV from DSM and re-label as a medical conditionIn non-DSD GIV’s reproductive tract and body are healthy Sweden has removed GIV but retained transsexualism to preserve access to medical procedures for gender reassignment

    1. 1. Sexual and GenderIdentity DisordersKellie Cooper, Heather Munsche, DaniellePainter, & Lisa Zbizek-Nulph
    2. 2. • Gender Identity Disorder (Heather)• Sexual Pain Disorders -Dyspareunia• Sexual Arousal Disorder (Kellie) -Female Sexual Arousal Disorder -Male Erectile Disorder• Orgasmic Disorders -Premature Ejaculation• Paraphilias -PedophiliaOverview
    3. 3. DSM-IV-TR:• Core Criteria in DSM includes: • Cross-gender identification • Desire to live as member of the other sex • Sense of inappropriateness in the gender role belonging to one’s natal sex • Discomfort about one’s assigned sex • Desire to have sex characteristics of the other sex • Discomfort about one’s anatomic sex • Wish to get rid of one’s natal sex characteristicsGender Identity Disorder
    4. 4. • GID vs. Transgender • Current formulation – wish to completely alter body (complete sex reassignment) option for having diagnosis • Inability of current criteria to capture spectrum of gender variance phenomena • Dichotomous rather than dimensional idea of gender • Netherlands – 10% asked for partial medical treatment • Risk of unnecessary physical examinations-C • Gender dysphoria occurs in people with DSD (disorders of sex development) as wellCriticisms of DSM-IV-TR
    5. 5. • Necessity of D criterion – impairment or distress • Many with GID have psychiatric problems but why? • Social stigma role• Many with GID function well but still desire reassignment • If not distressed, do not qualify for Dx, ineligible for sex reassignment• Diagnosis still applies to post-operative individuals • Pathologized for life – should exclude those no longer gender dysphoric
    6. 6. • Rename: Gender Dysphoria • More neutral connotation• New diagnostic indicators (Only 1 for Dx) • Strong sense of discomfort with the gender role associated with one’s assigned gender • Strong discomfort with one’s primary and/or secondary sex characteristics, because they do not match one’s gender identity • Strong desire for primary and/or sex characteristics that match one’s gender identity • Distress causes by a strong desire to live in the gender role of the other gender and/or to be perceived by others as a member of the other gender (or some alternative gender different from one’s assigned gender) • Distress caused by a strong identification with the other gender (or some alternative gender different from one’s assigned gender) Recommendations
    7. 7. • GID could be understood as CNS-limited form of DSD without involvement of reproductive tract• There may be genetically based systemic sex-hormone abnormalities that do not cause abnormalities of the reproductive anatomy but nevertheless influence brain & behavior• Some feel that (Gender Identity Variation) is completely biologically-bounded • Is it “natural” to want to take functioning anatomy and replace it with characteristics of the other gender and impose infertility?• Most treatment involves hormones & surgery, not psychotherapyOr…depathologize completely
    8. 8. •• Currently: -Criteria are worded differently for boys and girls -Requires statement that he or she wants to be other genderChildhood GID
    9. 9. • Leave criteria as are (change some wording) • Shows discriminative validity • Why not: ability to make Dx in absence of repeated verbal statements that one wishes to be the other sex• Tighten criteria so A has to include all 5 parameters • Some kids might want to be the other sex but don’t verbalize it, would lead to social problems• Eliminate criteria of specific behaviors – new set of criteria focusing on different manifestations of gender dysphoria• Zucker recommends 2 – may decrease number eligible for Dx. Combine A & B criteria. Desire to be of the other sex necessary for diagnosis. Lower bound duration criterion of 6 months. • Would alert clinician it is not a transitory thingRecommendations-Child
    10. 10. Dyspareunia
    11. 11. DSM-IV-TR: • C. The person is at least age 16 years and at least 5 years older • A. Over a period of at least 6 than the child or children in months, recurrent, intense Criterion A sexually arousing fantasies, sexual urges, or behaviors • Specify if: involving sexual activity with • Sexually Attracted to Males a prepubescent child or • Sexually Attracted to Females children (generally age 13 or • Sexually Attracted to Both younger) • Specify if: • B. The person has acted on • Limited to Incest these sexual urges, or the sexual urges or fantasies cause • Specify if: marked distress or • Exclusive Type (attracted only interpersonal difficulty to children) • Nonexclusive TypePedophilia
    12. 12. Arguments for change: • Diagnostic criteria based on guesswork • Studies that have investigated • Field trials for DSM-III these criteria found them to be included 3 patients “mediocre or poor” • Paraphilias not included (Blanchard, 2011) in field trials for DSM- III-R or DSM-IVParaphilias
    13. 13. Proposed Changes:• All Paraphilic Disorders now include two new specifiers: In a Controlled Environment and In Remission• Rename Paraphilias chapter Paraphilic Disorders• Pedophilic Disorder - addition of a Hebephilic SubtypeParaphilias
    14. 14. Criticism 1: Response: • Remove “sexual acts” • “repeated sexual acts from Criterion A involving children are • First and Frances (2008) practically indispensable as a argue that sexual acts diagnostic sign of alone then cause pedophilia” (Blanchard, professionals to diagnose a 2009) person with a mental • Sometimes this history is the only thing we can use in diagnosing disorder without other • Can’t rely on self-report evidence • “blurs the distinction between mental disorder and criminality”Pedophilia
    15. 15. Criticism 2: • Response: • Criterion A too vague • Go back to DSM-III • What constitutes • “the act or fantasy of recurrent? engaging in sexual • What constitutes activity with prepubertal intense? children is a repeatedly preferred or exclusive method of achieving sexual excitement” • But how do you assess preferences?Pedophilia
    16. 16. Criticism 3: • Need more research • Why 6 months for time in this area! interval?Pedophilia
    17. 17. Criticism 4: Response: • How do we distinguish • Specify a # of between pedophile and occurrences during a child molester? time period and use as a • Not one in the same cutoff • Child molester could = • Actually has empirical antisocial PD + support opportunity • 61% w/ sexual offense of 3 or more children had greater penile tumescence to pictures of children • 42% of 2 or more • 30% of 1 or morePedophilia
    18. 18. Criticism 5: Response: • Should we account for • Specify acute or difference between chronic person offending against 1 child versus many?Pedophilia
    19. 19. Criticism 6: • Wording in Criterion B makes it seem necessary Response: to be distressed or • DSM-5 could distinguish impaired by pedophilia between paraphilias and to have disorder paraphilic disorders • DSM-IV-R has added societal impairments to solve this • Is this sufficient? What if person doesn’t act on feelings and doesn’t impact community?Pedophilia
    20. 20. Criticism 7: Response: • Snyder, 2000 found the • Should there be a average age of sex diagnostic category for victims is 14 – in those interested pubescent range (as primarily in pubescent cited in Blanchard, individuals? 2009) • AKA Hebephilia • But is this pathological? • From an evolutionary point of view - NO! (Blanchard, 2010)Pedophilia
    21. 21. • A. The person is equally or more attracted sexually to children under the age of 15 than to physically mature adults, as indicated by self-report, laboratory testing, or behavior. • B. The person is distressed or impaired by these attractions, or the person has sought sexual stimulation from children under 15 on three or more separate occasions. • C.

    22. 22. • The APA draft guidelines for making changes to DSM-V: • (1) to distinguish between psychiatric syndromes for purposes of guiding the most effective treatment and management; • (2) to reduce confusion of syndromes with each other; • (3) to take into account co-morbid symptoms which affect the outcome of treatment in the most effective manner; (4) to facilitate ease of use and promote clinical utility; (5) to demonstrate validity on as many levels as possible.
