Discuss the biosocial approach to gender dysphoria (24 marks) Discuss the biosocial approach to gender dysphoria (24 marks) Gender dysphoria is defined as a mental disorder in which people are uncomfortable with their gender. The biosocial approach to gender development takes into consideration both biological and social influences on gender identity and emphasises the differences between nature and nurture. The theory proposes that chromosomal and hormone differences in males and females affect gender identity prior to birth but, from birth onwards, social factors also play a crucial role; once children are labelled as a boy or a girl (based on their genitals) they are raised and treated differently. Femininity and masculinity therefore develops partially because of the release of pre-natalhormones and partially because of social factors. The biosocial approach explains gender dysphoria as a disorder which is caused by an interaction between biological and psychosocial factors.

Education is important with this form of treatment so clients can recognize how different factors affect the course of the disease and what they can do to manage these factors (Steinkuller and Rheineck 342). Family therapy is also a means of treatment where family members as well as the client see a mental health provider to find solutions and ways to deal with the disorder. Family involvement provides structure and could increase adherence to treatment leading to delays or reductions in relapses (Steinkuller and Rheineck 342). Interpersonal and social rhythm therapy involves stabilizing social and circadian rhythms based on the hypotheses that unstable daily routines result in increased bipolar episodes in individuals prone to them (Steinkuller and Rheineck 349).
