Samenvatting

Bij de meeste patiënten met een stoornis in de geslachtsdifferentiatie (DSD) ontwikkelen genderrolgedrag en genderidentiteit zich conform de toegewezen gender bij geboorte. Toch komen genderidentiteitsproblemen relatief vaak voor. Onderzoek geeft bovendien aan dat bij sommige vormen van DSD het risico van genderidentiteitsproblemen groter is dan bij andere vormen. In dit artikel wordt een overzicht gegeven van genderrolgedrag en genderidentiteit bij patiënten met DSD en wordt besproken hoe deze in de psychologische begeleiding van ouders en kinderen kunnen worden aangepakt.

Summary

In most patients with disorders of sex development (DSD) gender role behaviour and gender identity develop in accordance with the assigned gender. Yet, gender identity problems are relatively frequent. Research indicates that the risk of developing gender identity problems varies between conditions. In this article a review is given of gender role behaviour and gender identity in patients with DSD and is discussed how these problems may be addressed in the psychological counselling of parents and children.
