Conversion Therapy does not work
 

Plain and simple, conversion therapy is torture and harmful and does not work. Nearly every major association of mental health professionals have released statements condemning the practice. Therapy must be evidence-based and empirically verified in order to be a best practice. Conversion therapy is neither. Practices that are not guided by the client, have outcomes which are imposed upon the client, and don’t work are not therapy but torture.
