1 Final Draft Alexa Altman Amber Cooney DC Composition 102 21 May 2019 Annotated Bibliography “Appropriate Therapeutic Responses to Sexual Orientation.” American Psychological Association , . This book really has it all. The book, published by the American Psychological Association, displays several categories worth being shown. It delivers us facts about the good and harmful responses to sexual orientation change efforts, as well as the methods being used. It also gives more appropriate responses to sexual orientation and how families can cope with it, or discuss it in another manner. This book gives the history from start to finish in just about every category you can think of on this topic. Some important key points were that number one, the sexual orientation change efforts (SOCE) are most of the time ineffective and only harmful to the patients. If one did change their mind about their sexuality, it was out of fear, not out of realizing their wrongdoing. Another point made is that more harm is done to the patient than good. Patients who undergo these treatments don’t come out the same person; it’s not that one part of them that is changed, it’s the whole person. Self-stigma, shame, fear, paranoia, and more are enforced on the patients and can cause long-term effects to how they see reality and hurts their overall mental health.

2 This article shows both sides of my topic, but for the majority, supports my claim of finding another way than SOCE. It induces new ways for families and self to cope with their sexual identity and delivers us the cold truth of the harmful methods used. It’s strengths is itself as a whole and hitting just about any question you have about SOCE. It isn’t a biased source and I will use this to confirm the authority the APA has over the matter and make this a big background piece. “Born Perfect: The Facts About Conversion Therapy.” National Center for Lesbian Rights , 8 Nov. 2018, . The Born Perfect Campaign is a project in which LGBTQ memebers can share their stories of conversion therapy, abuse at home, or life journey. It is a campaign to end conversion therapy throughout all states. In this article specifically, the author, different LGBTQ contributors, talk about the methods used while undergoing conversion therapy, these include: electroshock therapy, castration, and institutionalization. Other methods include inducing nausea, vomit, or paralysis while showing the patient homoerotic images, or homosexual porn; providing electric shocks; having the individual snap an elastic band around the wrist when aroused by same-sex erotic images or thoughts; using shame to create aversion to same-sex attractions; orgasmic reconditioning; and satiation therapy. Some key points were, the methods used at places who practice conversion therapy and therapists trying to make the person act more feminine or masculine by certain training. Another big point was that all the major psychiatric and pediatric associations deemed reparative (conversion) therapy unnecessary and ineffective.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
