Clinical interventions by psychologists with lesbians and gay men.

Author information

  • 1Department of Psychology, University of Maryland Baltimore County 21228-5398, USA.


A questionnaire that assesses methods of intervention with, and attitudes toward, lesbians and gay men was completed by 139 clinical psychologists. None claimed to use aversion techniques to change sexual orientation. Eleven percent reported use of alternative methods (e.g., psychoanalytic techniques) to change sexual orientation, whereas 5.8% supported the use of aversion therapy for this purpose. Viewing homosexuality as "unacceptable" predicted both the use of alternative therapies and support of aversion therapy to change sexual orientation.
