The National Association for the Research and Therapy of Homosexuality (NARTH) has published a summary excerpt of Dr. Neil Whitehead’s article “Homosexuality and Co-Morbidities: Research and Therapeutic Implications” from the Journal of Human Sexuality, 2.

Here is an excerpt from the excerpt: – “Although accusations of harm are often made regarding Sexual Orientation Change Efforts (SOCE), the American Psychological Association admits that the research to date does not support such claims (APA, 2009). Despite the lack of research to support claims of harm, those claims continue to be made, including claims that SOCE actually contribute to a greater risk of suicide. What exactly does the research reveal? This summary of the research, taken from Whitehead (2010), reveals that providing psychological care to persons with unwanted homosexual thoughts and feelings does not increase a client’s suicide risk.”
