Summary

This study demonstrated reinforcement control over pronounced feminine behaviors in a male child who had been psychologically evaluated as manifesting "childhood cross-gender identity." Reinforcement control over cross-gender behavior was demonstrated by identifying some behavioral treatment conditions under which feminine behaviors could be suppressed. Behavioral observations were obtained for several feminine behaviors in the clinic and the home. An intrasubject design insured both replication and reliable identification of relevant treatment variables. The treatment effects were found to be largely response-specific and stimulus-specific. This research suggested a preliminary step towards correcting pathological sex-role development in boys, which may provide a basis for the primary prevention of adult transsexualism, or similar adult sex-role deviation. The clinical history of the subjects paralleled the retrospective reports of adult transsexuals including seven specifically defined variables. (Author)
