This year has seen Exodus International’s president Alan Chambers drop support for the brand of change therapy called reparative therapy. In response, the therapy’s chief proponent, Dr. Joeseph Nicolosi, has accused Chambers of misrepresenting the practice. Some of what we present here has appeared elsewhere recently, but we are now able to provide a more […]

NARTH co-founder Joseph Nicolosi has called on Exodus International head Alan Chambers to take back criticisms he has made of reparative therapy. In particular, Nicolosi, the chief theorist and practitioner of reparative therapy, took exception at the following remarks, which Chambers made on Facebook: As for Reparative Therapy, I do not support it. I don’t […]
NARTH founder Joseph Nicolosi, arguably the father of modern reparative therapy, has retracted his claim that a patient was able to change his sexual orientation through an SSRI. In 2009, Dr Nicolosi said his client had made no progress in eight years of therapy, but after a course of Lexapro, a brand of the antidepressant […]
During his recent visit to London for a conference held by the Anglican Church, Joseph Nicolosi was interviewed on the BBC News Hour along with Professor Michael King from the University College of London Medical School. Their debate was short but, as King put it at one point, robust. Nicolosi normally comes out of the […]
In an interview with self-proclaimed “global voice of orthodox Anglicanism” VirtueOnline, reparative therapist Dr Joseph Nicolosi made some of his boldest claims yet. The former President of NARTH, who told a London ex-gay conference last weekend that 75 percent of his clients were “cured” of their homosexuality, said the following: [The] fact remains that if […]

Glenn Stanton of Focus on the Family joins him in what seems like a defense of the theories essential to their respective […]
The Anglican Archbishop of Sydney, Dr. Peter Jensen, is a central figure in the opposition to same-sex marriages and homosexuals serving in the church. As such, he is also firmly against the appointment of openly gay Gene Robinson as the Bishop of New Hampshire. Earlier this year he attempted to rally support against homosexuality in […]
A few days ago, we posted about a video parody which illustrates the profoundly general nature of one of Dr. Joseph Nicolosi’s (NARTH) personal theories — the “Grey Zone.” Essentially, this is supposed to be a grief state when one feels really bad, then seeks to act out homosexually in an attempt to feel better.
