Comparing adult and adolescent transsexuals: an MMPI-2 and MMPI-A study

Year Published: 2011

Published In: Psychiatry research

Conclusion: "Adult FtMs functioned significantly better than MtFs on three clinical scales. Contrary to what is often assumed, no differences in psychological functioning were found in the adult transsexuals with regard to sexual orientation, except on one clinical scale. Most remarkably, significantly more adults with GID scored in the clinical range on two or more clinical scales than adolescents with GID. Therefore, early medical intervention may be recommendable for adolescents with GID."
