"...unethical, potentially harmful and is not supported by evidence."
This is a welcome and important professional rejection of 'conversion therapy' from the local branch of the British Psychological Society. Conversion 'therapies' or 'gay cures' are bogus and damaging practices that seek to change or suppress someone's sexual orientation. These practices can cause long term damage to those undergoing them and creates the need for genuine professional treatment. We believe that the best way to regulate 'conversion therapy' is to simply ban it in law.
There can be no 'cure' where there is no 'illness'. We need to continue to #demandchange for full equality in society and promote awareness and acceptance of LGBTQ people so this situation doesn't even arise. Those who are promoting these practices at the minute need to heed the professional advice on the damage they can cause.
