Sexual orientation change efforts SOCE are methods used in attempts to change the sexual orientation of homosexual and bisexual people to heterosexuality. According to the American Psychiatric Association Task Force on Appropriate Therapeutic Responses to Sexual Orientation, "there are no studies of adequate scientific rigor to conclude whether or not such methods work to change sexual orientation.
The longstanding consensus of the behavioral and social sciences, and the health and mental health professions is that homosexuality and bisexuality are per se normal and positive variations of human sexual orientation.
There is a large body of research evidence that indicates that being gay, lesbian or bisexual is compatible with normal mental health and social adjustment.
Indeed, such interventions are ethically suspect because they can be harmful to the psychological well-being of those who attempt them; clinical observations and self-reports indicate that many individuals who unsuccessfully attempt to change their sexual orientation experience considerable psychological distress.
For these reasons, no major mental health professional organization has sanctioned efforts to change sexual orientation and virtually all of them have adopted policy statements cautioning the profession and the public about treatments that purport to change sexual orientation.
SOCE have been controversial due to tensions between the values held by some right-wing faith-based organizations, on the one hand, and those held by LGBT rights organizations, human rights and civil rights organizations, and other faith-based organizations, as well as professional and scientific organizations, on the other.
Some individuals and groups have, contrary to global scientific research and consensus, promoted the idea of homosexuality as symptomatic of developmental defects or spiritual and moral failings and have argued that SOCE, including psychotherapy and religious efforts, could alter homosexual feelings and behaviors.
Medical attempts to change homosexuality included surgical treatments such as hysterectomy ,  ovariectomy ,  clitoridectomy ,  castration ,   vasectomy ,  pudic nerve surgery,  and lobotomy.
Richard von Krafft-Ebing was a German-Austrian psychiatrist and one of the founders of scientific sexology. His first systematic work on sexual pathology was published in in a German psychiatric journal. His influential work, Psychopathia Sexualis was published in Numerous expanded German editions followed, and it was widely translated.
Krafft-Ebing became a proponent of the sickness model of homosexuality. Krafft-Ebing believed that hypnosis was therefore the "only means of salvation"  in most cases. He stated that he knew of only a single case in which self-hypnosis had proven successful, and that hypnotic suggestion by another person was usually necessary to change homosexuality. Krafft-Ebing wrote about this method that " He rejected castration as a cure for homosexuality, and the internment of gay people in asylums, except in cases involving sex crimes.
Krafft-Ebing cautioned that the success or failure of treatments for homosexuality proved nothing about its causes. He defended the right of patients to receive such treatment. Krafft-Ebing criticised several objections to medical treatment of homosexuality, including the charges that it was ineffective and that it gave an opportunity "to tainted individuals to propagate their perversions".
In the last two decades of the 19th century, a different view began to predominate in medical and psychiatric circles, judging such behavior as indicative of a type of person with a defined and relatively stable sexual orientation. In the late 19th and 20th centuries, pathological models of homosexuality were standard. In , the World Health Organization replaced its categorization of homosexuality as a mental illness with the diagnosis of ego-dystonic homosexuality.
At that time APA stressed that removing homosexuality from the list of psychiatric disorders does not mean it is "normal" or as valuable as heterosexuality. They also stated that modern methods of treatment allow interested homosexuals to change their sexual orientation with a significant degree of success.
No major mental health professional organization has sanctioned efforts to change sexual orientation and virtually all of them have adopted policy statements cautioning the profession and the public about treatments that purport to change sexual orientation. Christian right political groups have marketed sexual orientation change directly to consumers.
A majority of people who attempt to change their sexual orientation come from conservative religious backgrounds. Many people may seek to change their sexual orientation as a way to avoid behaviors which they perceive as being associated with homosexuality,  such as non-monogamy.
An article in the American Medical Association 's Journal of Ethics argues that clinicians who care for adolescents face a "common challenge" of parents seeking interventions to change the sexual orientation of their teenage children. The article states that adolescents are increasingly comfortable in revealing their same-sex attraction to their parents because of the "generational shift in views of sexual orientation" due in part to increasing acceptance of LGBT rights and same-sex marriage.
An APA task force found that people often sought out SOCE due to a a lack of other sources of social support; b a desire for active coping and c access to methods of sexual orientation identity exploration and reconstruction. These pressures may lead people to feel forced into attempting to change their sexual orientation. Types of behavior therapy used to change sexual orientation include aversion therapy , covert sensitization and systematic desensitization. A series of experiments appeared promising, and the practice became popular, but when reports were shown to be flawed, it fell out of favour.
Bioenergetics is a therapeutic technique developed by Alexander Lowen and John Pierrakos , who were students of Wilhelm Reich.
It has been used to attempt to convert gay people to heterosexuality by Richard Cohen , who has been called one of America's leading practitioners of conversion therapy. The American Psychological Association defines conversion therapy or reparative therapy as therapy aimed at changing sexual orientation.
Aversive conditioning involving electric shock or nausea-inducing drugs was practiced before , as was sex therapy ,   though there are some reports of aversive treatments through unlicensed practice as late as the s. The ethics guidelines of major U. It may be harmful if the client is egosyntonic and does not wish to change their sexual orientation. A task force commissioned by the APA found that ex-gay groups act like support groups, in that they help counteract and buffer Minority Stress , marginalization, and isolation.
Most ex-gay groups focus on abstaining from homosexual relationships rather than a complete sexual orientation change from homosexual to heterosexual. People with a sexual relationship disorder have difficulty forming or maintaining a relationship because of their sexual orientation. A significant number of men and women experience conflict surrounding homosexual expression within a mixed-orientation marriage. Some people with unwanted homosexual attractions turn to their faith for help.
Some conservative Christians believe that homosexuality is a result of a broken world and that faith can change sexual orientation. Syntonic therapy, a method developed by Robert Kronemeyer, was based partly on the work of Wilhelm Reich. Kronemeyer rejected some earlier methods that were used in attempts to change homosexuality, including lobotomy , electroshock treatment, and Aesthetic Realism.
During the Holocaust , an estimated 5, to 15, gay men were imprisoned in concentration camps on the grounds that male homosexuality was deemed incompatible with Nazism. Some imprisoned homosexuals faced human experimentation by Nazi doctors who sought to find a "medical cure" for homosexuality. No scientific knowledge has been yielded from these experiments. He made incisions in their groin and implanted a metal tube that released testosterone over a prolonged period, as he believed that a lack of testosterone was the cause of homosexuality.
Although some of the men claimed to have become heterosexual, the results are largely unreliable as many are assumed to have stated they were "cured" in order to be released from the camp.
Those who did not show improvement were determined to be "chronic" or "incurable" homosexuals. Ex-gay organizations expressed concerns about the lack of representation of pro-reparative-therapy perspectives on the task force, while alleging that anti-reparative-therapy perspectives were amply represented.
The task force reached the following findings: Recent studies of participants in Sexual Orientation Change Efforts SOCE identify a population of individuals who experience serious distress related to same sex sexual attractions. These individuals report having pursued a variety of religious and secular efforts intended to help them to change their sexual orientation.
To date, the research has not fully addressed age, gender, gender identity, race, ethnicity, culture, national origin, disability, language, and socioeconomic status in the population of distressed individuals. Scientifically rigorous older work in this area e. Some individuals appeared to learn how to ignore or limit their attractions.
However, this was much less likely to be true for people whose sexual attractions were initially limited to people of the same sex. Distress and depression were exacerbated.
Although there is insufficient evidence to support the use of psychological interventions to change sexual orientation, some individuals modified their sexual orientation identity i. Based on the available data, additional claims about the meaning of those outcomes are scientifically unsupported. In , the Pan American Health Organization the North and South American branch of the World Health Organization released a statement cautioning against "services that purport to 'cure' people with non-heterosexual sexual orientations" as they "lack medical justification and represent a serious threat to the health and well-being of affected people", and noted that "there is a professional consensus that homosexuality is a normal and natural variation of human sexuality and cannot be regarded as a pathological condition".
The organization further called "on governments, academic institutions, professional associations and the media to expose these practices and to promote respect for diversity. Additionally, the organization recommended that such malpractices be denounced and subject to sanctions and penalties under national legislation, as they constitute a violation of the ethical principles of health care and violate human rights that are protected by international and regional agreements.
The American Psychiatric Association also states: Firstly, they are at odds with the scientific position of the American Psychiatric Association which has maintained, since , that homosexuality per se, is not a mental disorder. The theories of "reparative" therapists define homosexuality as either a developmental arrest, a severe form of psychopathology, or some combination of both.
In recent years, noted practitioners of "reparative" therapy have openly integrated older psychoanalytic theories that pathologize homosexuality with traditional religious beliefs condemning homosexuality.
The earliest scientific criticisms of the early theories and religious beliefs informing "reparative" or conversion therapies came primarily from sexology researchers.
Later, criticisms emerged from psychoanalytic sources as well. There has also been an increasing body of religious thought arguing against traditional, biblical interpretations that condemn homosexuality and which underlie religious types of "reparative" therapy. There is no sound scientific evidence that sexual orientation can be changed. Furthermore so-called treatments of homosexuality as recommended by NARTH create a setting in which prejudice and discrimination can flourish.
The Royal College of Psychiatrists holds the view that lesbian, gay and bisexual people should be regarded as valued members of society who have exactly similar rights and responsibilities as all other citizens.
In Australia , the Australian Psychological Society states: Some therapists who undertake this kind of therapy report that they have changed their client's sexual orientation from homosexual to heterosexual in treatment. Close scrutiny of these reports shows that many of the claims come from organisations with an ideological perspective on sexual orientation rather than from mental health researchers.
Also, the treatments and their outcomes are poorly documented and the length of time that clients are followed up after the treatment is sometimes too short to be a true reflection of the outcome.
In other cases it has been shown that individuals can be assisted to live a heterosexual lifestyle, but that their sexual orientation remains unchanged. In other words, their pattern of arousal to members of the same sex does not alter. The Australian Psychological Society acknowledges the lack of scientific evidence for the usefulness of conversion therapy, and notes that it can in fact be harmful for the individual.
In China , Western psychiatry and psychology were imported during a "Westernization Movement" in the late 19th century. At that time, the West viewed homosexuality as a mental disorder, and that became the prevailing view in China as well. During this period, homosexual sexual behavior was grounds for persecution, a marked change from the attitude of general but not total acceptance found in preth-century China.
These views lasted throughout the s, despite changed theoretical models of sexuality orientation in the West, during a period when the Chinese government held a "closed-door" policy on information about human sexuality. After , information became more available, and views began to change. In India , psychiatry and psychology scholars have "preserved an almost complete silence on the subject of homosexuality".
In Italy , little research has been conducted in the mental health community on homosexuality. Early work tended to describe homosexuality as a pathology or a developmental arrest.
More recently, attitudes have begun to change: In Germany , the psychiatry, psychology, and sexology establishment from the early 20th century viewed homosexuality as pathological. However, following the increased visibility of the homosexual community during the AIDS epidemic of the late s and the declassification of homosexuality as a mental disorder in the ICD, non-pathological, rather than pathological, models of homosexuality became mainstream.

On May 15, , the California Supreme Court ruled that same-sex couples should have the right to marry. The ruling took effect mid-June and same-sex marriages were performed in California for a short period of time before a ballot initiative challenging the decision was certified in late summer. Proposition 8 proposed a state constitutional amendment that defined marriage as a relationship between a man and a woman. It passed in November , again banning same-sex marriage in California. Proposition 8 was challenged in early , but the California Supreme Court upheld the law in May In August , a federal district judge ruled that the Proposition 8 ban on same-sex marriages violated the equal protection provisions of the U.
The decision was appealed and enforcement that would allow same-sex marriages to be performed was delayed until the case could be heard by the federal appeals court. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the earlier district court decision that declared Proposition 8 invalid. The decision reinstated the right to marriage for same-sex couples in California. The case was appealed to the U. Supreme Court and enforcement was delayed until the court decided.
In October , the Connecticut Supreme Court ruled that a ban against same-sex marriage was in violation of the equal protection clause in the state constitution.
Connecticut became the second state to allow same-sex marriage. In April , the Iowa Supreme Court ruled that the state's ban against same-sex marriage was unconstitutional. Iowa began performing same-sex marriages in June In April , the Vermont legislature passed a bill allowing same-sex marriage. Governor Douglas vetoed the bill, but the veto was overridden by the legislature.
Vermont became the first state where the legislature, without judicial mandate, passed a statute to allow same-sex marriage. The Maine Legislature passed and Governor Baldacci signed legislation in May allowing same sex marriage. Opponents, however, successfully petitioned a referendum on the issue for the November ballot.
Same-sex marriages were delayed, pending the ballot outcome. Voters approved the referendum, effectively repealing the law in November New Hampshire also passed same-sex marriage legislation in June , bringing the total number of states that allowed same-sex marriage to five.
In December , the District of Columbia Council passed a same-sex marriage law, subject to a congressional review period. The law took effect in March In June , the New York Assembly passed legislation allowing same-sex marriage. Governor Andrew Cuomo immediately signed the legislation.
The law took effect 30 days after signing, making same-sex marriages available in New York in late July The pace of state legislative action quickened in The Washington state Legislature and governor approved legislation in February establishing same-sex marriage.
In June opponents gathered enough signatures to put the issue on the ballot in November. Voters upheld the law and same-sex marriages began on Dec. The New Jersey Legislature passed a same-sex marriage bill in February , but the measure was vetoed by Governor Christie.
With the state court decision in October that the state must recognize same-sex marriage, New Jersey officials are considering whether to pass legislation on same-sex marriage to answer some questions left unanswered in the court decision.
Opponents of the legislation obtained enough signatures to file a referendum challenging the law. Voters upheld the law and it went into effect on Jan. In November , voters in Maine approved a ballot measure legalizing same-sex marriage. It is the first time voters had been asked to legalize same-sex marriage rather than prohibit it. The measure went into effect Dec.
The Maine initiative and the Washington and Maryland referendum votes to uphold the same-sex marriage laws marked a watershed. They were the first instances of public votes to establish same-sex marriage. On the same date, Minnesota voters voted against a constitutional prohibition of same-sex marriages.
Those four votes reversed a long trend of public votes against same sex marriage. Previously, voters in 32 states had consistently voted to limit same-sex marriage. Thirty states had enacted constitutional provisions to define marriage as a relationship between a man and a woman and prohibit same-sex marriages.
Between and May , only one public vote out of 32 had not supported restrictions on same-sex marriage. In , Arizona voters rejected a constitutional provision prohibiting same-sex marriage and then approved a prohibition in Legislative actions supporting same sex-marriage continued in Rhode Island passed same-sex marriage legislation and Governor Chafee signed the bill into law on May 2, The bill converted civil unions to marriage and recognizes civil unions and same sex marriage from other jurisdictions.
The law went into effect Aug. Delaware passed same-sex marriage legislation and Governor Markell signed the bill into law on May 7, The law converts civil unions to marriage and recognizes civil unions and same sex marriage from other jurisdictions. The law went into effect July 1, Minnesota passed a law allowing same-sex marriage in May The law went into effect on Aug. On June 26, , the U. Supreme Court declined to decide the California challenge to Proposition 8, ruling on technical grounds that it did not have jurisdiction.
The effect of that decision was to reinstate the federal district court decision overturning Proposition 8, thus allowing same sex marriage in California. Amid some confusion about timing, same-sex marriages began shortly after the decision. On the same day, the Supreme Court decided a challenge to the federal DOMA law that limited over one thousand federal benefits to marriages defined as a relationship between a man and a woman. It ruled that the restriction violated equal protection and due process for married same-sex couples.
The decision emphasized the dominance of state law defining marriage and required the federal government to recognize same-sex marriages granted under state law. If we truly believe God has the power to change anything, we cannot withhold offering truth, hope, and healing through Christ Jesus. Personally, I believe the extension of His love comes about by and through discipleship.
Christian discipleship is exactly the same for the homosexual struggler as it is for any man or woman combating the very long list of habits, addictions or various behaviors that impact lives. Christian discipleship is the process by which men and women disciples grow in the Lord Jesus Christ and are equipped by the Holy Spirit who resides in our hearts , to overcome the pressures, trials, and temptations that manifest in our lives and become more and more Christ-like.
Jesus must be put first in all matters of life. In other words, put off self-centeredness and put on Christ-centeredness. Follow all the teachings of Jesus. Obedience is the supreme test of faith in God.
As we become more obedient to the Lord and purposed to walk in all of His ways, our lives change. In love for other believers disciples. We must be doing something and involved in the process of discipleship.
Making disciples of others. No matter what our maturity level in Christian life, we have something to offer. Frankly, some of the most enthusiastic representatives of the Christian life are new believers who have just discovered the awesome love of God. Admittedly, deliverance from homosexuality or any habit, addiction or compulsive behavior, for that matter, comes from a Person and not a method. Heaven knows, Christians throughout the ages have had sinful habits to overcome and misbeliefs to replace with truth.
Sep 17th, by His Way Out Ministries. Each Saturday morning beginning at 7: Season 3, Episode 26 Join Pastor Phillip Lee and his guest Pastor Brian Busby from Valley Baptist Church as they discuss the role of the Church to men, women, and their families impacted by the unwanted brokenness of same-sex attraction. They also discussed the upcoming Educational Workshop titled Demystifying Homosexuality: Sep 10th, by His Way Out Ministries. Sep 9th, by His Way Out Ministries. Is it fear, is it embarrassment causing some to steer away from truth and the unwillingness to step too deeply into it?
Whatever the cause, many Christians are becoming confused because they do not know what true Christianity is, what the Bible teaches, and what is required of each and every faithful follower of Christ Jesus, largely because they are not being taught the Bible in its entirety.
Not only are believers falling into homosexual sin and legitimizing it but many within the uninformed Church are applauding them as they do. Laws have been changed, same-sex marriage is now legal throughout America and educational systems are becoming more tolerant of homosexual practice by falsely teaching pro-homosexual lessons through health education curriculum.
In a world that is rapidly spinning toward accepting everything and tolerating anything, we, the Church, must be very, very careful. God has and He is setting opportunity before us. The Gospel must be the priority for the homosexual — just as it must be for each and every faithful follower of Christ Jesus. Sep 4th, by His Way Out Ministries. Admittedly, the past few months have been an emotional roller coaster with regard to proposed assembly bills here in the State of California.
I remain in awe. The New Testament makes it abundantly clear that evangelism is in some way connected with the final return of Christ at the consummation of all history. Clearly, the greatest thing you and I can do for all people is to bring them face-to-face with the Christ who died for them.
Twenty-four years ago when God saw fit to birth His ministry called His Way Out Ministries , He could not have been more specific in defining our calling and mission.

Sep 3rd, by His Way Out Ministries. Aug 30th, by His Way Out Ministries. Give yourself permission to wade through the myriad of real and genuine emotions. Without a doubt, a considerably strong emotion that will surface at some point is anger. It is Ok for a Christian to get angry. Just do not allow your anger to become misdirected. Misdirected anger is useless. While it is a given most parents experience some measure of guilt regarding the homosexuality of their child, seeking to place blame on friends and other people, circumstances and even God, is often a misdirected attempt to help cope with the situation.
Parents, the brokenness of same-sex attraction is far too complex for you to place all of the blame upon yourselves. Loving a wayward child the way God loves them means loving them unconditionally.
