Changes in the Treatment of Intersex Conditions

Previously considered classical research into intersex conditions has been found to be based on faulty logic. Unfortunately it has led to poor clinical methods of treatment still in use. This talk will explore reasons for the original faulty reasonings and the evidence behind a modern theory of intersex management which gives credence to the influences of psychosexual predisposition for sexual identity and sexual orientation. New clinical management techniques are offered.
