This panel will discuss data on more than eight hundred Latter-day Saints who have been involved in therapy efforts to change their sexual orientation. The data shows that very few have been able to use therapy successfully as a method for change. This report includes findings from a past president of the Association of Mormon Counselors and Psychotherapists (AMCAP) and other key LDS therapists. Panelists will also discuss a report from a past leader in Evergreen International (an organization dedicated to helping Latter-day Saints overcome same-sex attraction), data on clients that were followed for a four-year period as part of a doctoral dissertation, and other reports from members of the panel including an LDS bishop who has ministered to about fifty such persons.
