As a friend of several survivors of conversion therapy, I know that this fraudulent practice:
Conversion therapists use lies about the origin of sexual orientation to extort money from patients for extended periods of time until the family realizes that the therapy is a hoax. Counselors should not behave unprofessionally as the conversion therapy model requires them to do, and counselors should not make money from tactics that deliberately reinforce negative self-esteem and suicide in people who are deeply hated by the churches that promote this form of "counseling."
