Abstract [Article in German]
Transsexualism as a phenomenon clearly contrasts the common understandings of sexuality. This can lead to conflicts for the transsexual himself as well as for those being confronted.
Medical care and legislative offer some assistance for patients, which has been proofed as suitable and helpful. These strategies have not been developed by a theoretical approach but pragmatically and can still be further improved.
To be able to receive a higher acceptance of this phenomenon in society and to achieve concrete improvement of the patient’s personal situation the challenge still exists to understand mechanisms underlying the transsexual experience.
