"Conversion therapy is a highly controversial type of therapy that claims it is possible to suppress or change sexual orientation."
Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) August 23, 2013
Rachel Mork, freelance writer and owner of GBLT site RainbowRights.net, has reported on survey results from a survey conducted by Dr. Jallen Rix, sexologist and conversion therapy survivor. She is currently seeking men and women who are interested in contributing their stories of conversion therapy for a book she is writing.
Conversion therapy is a highly controversial type of therapy that claims it is possible to suppress or change sexual orientation. California and New Jersey have recently banned conversion therapy for minors,and the state of Massachusetts is currently considering a similar piece of legislation.
Dr. Jallen Rix and his colleagues have conducted a survey of over 400 men and women who have engaged in conversion therapy. The survey asks questions such as how much money was spent, how much time (often years) was devoted to therapy, how effective the therapy was, and what emotional damage was done by the therapy. The survey explores relatively untouched and unreported upon territory.
Freelance writer Rachel Mork has included these survey results on her website as part of her reporting on the topic of conversion therapy. The site also includes search results as she researches for her upcoming novel and nonfiction book, both of which explore the topic of sexual orientation change efforts.
