While a student (online student) in psychology at Purdue University in 2021, David wrote a paper for health care providers on laws banning sexual orientation change efforts, or "conversion therapy," on people under 18. The paper is entitled Health Care Providers and Conversion Therapy Bans. If a boy (under 18) has gay urges but his goal is to live a straight life (happily date girls and eventually happily marry a woman), do laws banning conversion therapy on people under 18 allow a therapist to help the boy achieve the boy's goal? Many therapists believe that these laws don't allow them to help the boy achieve his goal. David isn't so sure. David thinks it may depend on how the therapist approaches the topic. Read David's paper on this fascinating, timely topic.
