Straight Talk About Gay Conversion

A talk by Sheldon W. Helms, Professor of Psychology at Ohlone College.

Room 1011

In this talk, Sheldon W. Helms describes the history of attempts to approach homosexuality as an illness, and efforts by some to help gays go straight. The techniques they use are not only ineffective, but often leave victims susceptible to shame, depression, and even increased risk of suicide.
