Compelling studies have demonstrated that “gender identity” is not simply a psychosocial construct, but likely reflects a complex interplay of biologic, environmental, and cultural factors.  This session will highlight new understandings about the relationship between biology and gender identity. Influenced by work across multiple aspects of medical science (endocrine, genetic, and neuroanatomic), we are coming to an ever more nuanced recognition of gender’s complexity. Grounded in ongoing research as well as evolving practices from gender and Disorder of Sex Development (DSD) clinical work, the workshop will explore cutting edge ideas about biologic contributions to the development of gender identity. The workshop will also review the prevalence of gender-expansive and transgender youth, and current concepts of endocrine care and the implications for integrating medical, mental health, advocacy, and legal services.
