A Gender Identity Interview for Children
A 12-item gender identity interview schedule was administered to 85 children referred for concerns regarding their gender identity development and 98 clinical and normal control children. Factor analysis identified two factors, which were labeled Affective Gender Confusion and Cognitive Gender Confusion. The gender-referred group gave significantly more deviant responses than did the controls on both factors. Results were discussed with regard to several diagnostic and assessment issues pertaining to children with gender identity disorder.
