Question description

Controversy: Gender Dysphoria- Should It Be in the DSM-5?

Before working on this discussion, please read Chapter 12 in the course text, the article by Kamens (2011), watch the Beyond the Gender Binary: Yee Won Chong at TEDxRainier  video, and review any relevant Instructor Guidance.

For this discussion, you will enter into a conversation on another ongoing controversy and contemporary issue regarding abnormal psychology. Specifically, should gender dysphoria be included as a diagnosis in the DSM-5? It is absolutely essential that you view the required video and read the required article and your instructor’s initial post before participating in this discussion.

As you enter into this conversation, carefully consider the historical information you read regarding the rationale behind excluding the DSM-IV-TR diagnosis of gender identity disorder from the DSM-5. Then, take a moment to relate this historical background to the current ethical, clinical, and social controversies regarding gender dysphoria and the DSM-5. Analyze this controversy within the context of how clinicians ethically identify and treat psychiatric conditions. Be sure to integrate knowledge of any appropriate cultural considerations psychologist must be aware of when diagnosing gender dysphoria.
