Michael Seto on transsexualism
Michael Seto is currently working at the Clarke Institute in their Law and Mental Health Program
In 2003, he sat on a panel at the Kinsey Institute with J. Michael Bailey as part of a multidisciplinary group of researchers in sexual psychophysiology.
Seto has joined the International Academy of Sex Research and the editorial board at the journal they control, The Archives of Sexual Behavior.
Michael Seto views pedophilia as a disorder, but the DSM has not defined it well. One should not define behavior as an illness. And one should define pedophilia so that it only concerns a sexual desire for sexually still immature pre- pubescents
He is cited in this article by his coworker Ray Blanchard
Pedophiles: mental retardation, maternal age, and sexual orientation.
From the Clarke Institute site:
Dr. Barbaree, Dr. Seto, and colleagues are developing a model of risk management that incorporates actuarial risk, institutional treatment, dynamic risk factors, and community supervision in the prediction and prevention of sex offender recidivism.
Dr. Seto chaired a committee that produced Practice Standards and Guidelines for members of the Association for the Treatment of Sexual Abusers.
