Product description

Bringing together a Judeo-Christian anthropology with biological and psychodynamic theories of human development and sexuality, psychologist Joseph Nicolosi details the therapeutic techniques of reparative therapy he has developed over the past twenty years. Written in three parts, the book first describes the nature of the psychodynamics of same-sex attraction as understood in the reparative therapy approach. The second part describes the various phases of treatment. The final part deals with walking clients through the process of grieving and the healing of their wounding. Endorsed by numerous notable leaders in psychotherapy, Nicolosi offers practical guidance for counselors and therapists who want to offer reparative therapy to those seeking change.

Review quote

"In this richly detailed book, Dr. Nicolosi shares his experiences of many years working with same-sex-attracted men who want to diminish their unwanted attractions and develop their heterosexual potential. Nicolosi is convinced that the world's great religious traditions are right: humanity was designed for gender-complementary coupling. The mental-health associations must respect this viewpoint; to do otherwise would be a gross violation of worldview diversity as well as the client's right to freedom and self-determination. "This new book is a rich source of information--written by an astute clinician whose work with same-sex-attracted clients has been groundbreaking, beginning with his 1991 book, Reparative Therapy.--A.
