Judges are the world?s greatest confidence tricksters, says Dr. David McGrogan. Purporting to apply neutral law, in fact they impose their own politics via tendentious interpretations skewed towards elite biases.

IACP Condemns Conversion Therapy

category national | gender and sexuality | press release author Wednesday March 06, 2019 11:48author by Hugh O'Donoghue - Irish Association for Counselling and Psychotherapyauthor email hugh at iacp dot ieauthor phone 012147933 Report this post to the editors

The Irish Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy opposes the barbaric act of ‘conversion therapy’

Ireland's Largest Members' Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists condemns the practice of universally discredited therapy in Ireland.

Conversion or Reparative therapy is a range of dangerous and discredited practices that falsely claim to change a person’s sexual orientation/gender identity/expression. Such practices have been widely rejected by mainstream medical and mental health organisations. Despite such universal discreditation, the continuing discrimination and societal bias against LGBTQI+ people result in practitioners conducting ‘conversion therapy’.
In the aftermath of the recent screening of 'Once Gay - Matthew and Friends' at Townsend Presbyterian Church in west Belfast. The Irish Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (IACP) are keen to emphasise that we reject the use of reparative or conversion therapy methods. Additionally, we these practices as unethical and would like to highlight the significant dangers inherent in the practice of same.
Young people are especially vulnerable to this practice. Many LGBTQI+ are coerced into attending camps and sessions with unqualified and potentially dangerous ‘doctors. These experiences can lead to depression, anxiety, drug use, homelessness, and suicide. A 2007 study by the American Psychological Association concludes that there is no clear evidence that conversion therapy is effective and that there is significant evidence that it is harmful to LGBTQI+ people.
Furthermore, A 2009 APA Task Force on Appropriate Therapeutic Response to Sexual Orientation determined that mental health professionals should avoid telling clients that they can change their sexual orientation. This is due to a lack of evidence that such change is possible and the potential for such efforts to harm the patient’s mental health.
