Özet

OBJECTIVES: Development of gender identity is a complicated process. Several biological, familial, environmental, and cognitive factors thought to play role during this process. When a person has a persistent discomfort with his/her assigned gender and exhibits cross-gender identification, gender dysphoria is to be considered. In this study, we aimed to determine the rates of psychiatric diagnoses in youth presenting with gender dysphoria and compare them with a control group in terms of family functioning, emotional, and behavioural problems.
