What he said
Trinidad.Adventist.Gay?! is doing a couple of posts on reparative drive theory with a focus on “why this idea is so seductive for conservative Christians…”
He is certainly correct about groupthink on the matter.
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?
Jenn – That is not a hypothetical…(click to listen)
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.
Jenn – I have taken a lot of heat for this from some religious conservatives. However, if client self-determination means anything, it has to be real not just rhetoric.
