Conversion Therapy

Conversion therapy is counseling that seeks to change the sexual orientation of clients from gay to straight.  It dead tree silhouetetends to be supported by the conservative Christian groups and is banned in several states because the methods have gotten too close to torture and it may violate a minor’s rights.

 To know where professionals stand on this issues, let me quote Josephine Minardo, executive director of the New Jersey Psychological Association, talking about conversion therapy with minors.  “All the major nation psychological, psychiatric and counseling associations, including the APA, have found that this kind of therapy is actually very harmful.”
