Psychiatrist Jeffrey Satinover examines recent research reported in medical journals (and the popular press). He finds many of these studies flawed and cites evidence that homosexuality is indeed changeable. He explains how psychology, biology, choice, and habit all interweave to produce deeply imbedded patterns of sexual behaviour.
The model Dr. Satinover develops is based on modern science and psychological understandings of habit, compulsion, and addiction. Homosexuality, he writes, is one of the many forms of sould sickness that is innate to our fallen nature.
Dr. Jeffrey Satinover has practiced psychoanalysis and psychiatry for more than ninetten years. He is a former Fellow in Psychiatry and Child Psychiatry at Yale University and a past president of the C. G. Jung Foundations. He holds degrees from MIT, the University of Texas, the Harvard University and serves as a medical advisor to Focus on the Family.
Rigorous scientific scholarship and clear, passionate prose unite to make this book a rarity in our times.--Joseph Nicolosi, President of the National Association for the Research and Treatment of Homosexuality
Dr. Satinover argues convincingly that the growing acceptance of alternative sexual lifestyles' is not a function of convincing scientific evidence or compelling moral argumentation. His analysis needs to be heard and heeded today.--Stanton Jones, Chairman of the Department of Psychology, Wheaton College
