Abstract:

"In their fervor to "fix" homosexuals, practitioners of sexual conversion therapies have often overlooked or completely dismissed the possible psychological and social side effects of such treatments. Sexual Conversion Therapy: Ethical, Clinical and Research Perspectives works to counterbalance the clinical and ethical omissions of overzealous therapists who have appeared, at times, to focus on efficacy and outcome at the expense of their patients' well being. This book features first-person accounts of patients, including psychotherapists, who themselves have undergone treatments that include psychoanalysis, religious faith healing, and aversion therapy using electric shock. It also presents empirical research on conversion therapy from a consumer-centered perspective that sheds light on ethical issues."--Jacket.
