"Don't tell them they can be 'straight'". APA
In August 2009 the American Psychological Association (APA) adopted a resolution declaring that mental health professionals should not tell same-sex attracted clients that they can become straight through therapy or other treatments - even if they want to change.
A six person APA Committee apparently examined 83 studies on 'sexual orientation change' and concluded that "there is no solid evidence that change is likely".
Two questions must be asked about this statement - which may lead us to discover two major flaws with their conclusion.
Firstly, from what 'premise' did the APA committee start?
Secondly, what is their definition of the word 'change'?
Yes, this is a 'prestigious' organization and one from which we should expect the highest standard of accountability and scientific research, BUT, sadly, the APA is actually no better than those who purport to write theological studies approving of homosexuality - because the APA also starts from a false premise and builds the argument on that premise.
