About this Course

About the Course

This course, by Dr Christine McKnight (Cardiff Metropolitan University), explores gender development and dysphoria. In the first module, we think about sex, gender, and androgyny, as well as gender stereotypes. In the second module, we think about the roles of hormones and chromosomes, and the consequences of atypical hormone patterns. In the third module, we think about cognitive and psychodynamic explanations of gender, including theories from Piaget, Kohlberg, and Freud. Next, we think about the role of social learning theory in gender development. In the fifth and final module, we think about atypical gender, including the links between gender dysphoria and non-binary gender identities.
