Brief abstract: One in 4000 infants is born with abnormalities of external genitalia sufficient to warrant formal investigations, often resulting in the diagnosis of a disorder of sex development (DSD). Such an event is increasingly being understood as a traumatic event for parents and specialist psychological input sits on par with surgical input in standards of care guidelines. However, little is known about the specific psychological sequela in parents and no systematic protocol/intervention has been put forward. This seminar will (1) explore recent findings with respect to one specific outcome: posttraumatic stress in parents of children diagnosed with DSD ; (2) consider factors contributing to such outcomes; and (3) discuss strategies for intervention.

This talk is part of the Social Psychology Seminar Series (SPSS) series.
