Association Past-President in Interview with Dr. Nicolosi
Offering Psychological Services to
Men and Women Whose Same-Sex Attractions
Do Not Define Them
For many years, I have been assisting men and women –mostly, persons who are still at a crossroads about their sexual identity– to reduce their same-sex attractions and explore their heterosexual potential.
Perhaps you experience same-sex attractions, but you believe you were not destined to be gay. You believe that these feelings do not represent “who you really are.”
If this is your belief, then we may be able to help you.
I am a licensed clinical psychologist who shares your vision of humanity. I believe that our bodies tell us who we are, and that our bodies have made us for heterosexuality.
I have helped many men reduce their unwanted same-sex attractions, so that they lose their compelling, life-disrupting power, and assisted them in exploring and developing their heterosexual potential.
In 1992, I and two psychiatrists organized a professional association called NARTH-- the National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality (see the website www.narth.com). Today, NARTH has over 1000 members around the world.
On the NARTH website, see “What Research Shows: NARTH's Response to the American Psychological Association’s Claims on Homosexuality.” This paper examines over 100 years of professional and scientific literature on the subject of sexual-orientation change, offering a strong case that for at least some people, sexual orientation can be modified.
The Joseph Nicolosi Early Career Scholarship Award
Every year the Joseph Nicolosi Student Scholarship Award is given by NARTH (National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality) to a student who has made a significant contribution in research furthering the Association’s goals and objectives. This is one way NARTH can encourage the next generation of mental-health professionals to carry on its mission.
NARTH seeks to express its support and appreciation to students willing take an unpopular stand for what they believe is for a greater good.
