Versorgung von Kindern und Jugendlichen mit Geschlechtsdysphorie im Rahmen einer interdisziplinären Spezialsprechstunde

  • In Germany, the situation of health care services for children and adolescents with gender dysphoria is insufficient. In 2006 a specialized multiprofessional outpatient clinic was founded at the University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf. Goals were improvement of health services for gender dysphoric children, development of treatment concepts, and gain of knowledge through research. After finishing a thorough interdisciplinary assessment an individualized, case-by-case treatment starts. Besides psychotherapy an interdisciplinary treatment (e. g. puberty suppression and cross-sex hormones) is provided if indicated. During childhood a watchful waiting and carefully observing attitude is necessary. If a marked increase of gender dysphoria occurs during the first phases of puberty development, puberty suppression and later cross sex-hormones might be indicated.
