    Thanks so much for the link Dr. Throckmorton. I hope your voice of reason and moderation isn’t drowned-out!

    Group think conditions also exist in the gay community.

    Question for Warren –

    If a client came to you for SIT (sexual identity therapy) because they were uncertain of their attractions….would they ever find resolution in a “gay or lesbian” identity under your care?

    Warren –

    Cheers! I’m glad to hear that you can/did counsel someone who resolved to live a gay identity, and that you helped her to achieve self-acceptance around this.
