支持那些希望摆脱同性吸引和存在性别困惑的人群

很多人都在这样的问题上面临着困境,希望获得帮助以战胜这些感受。这种愿望可能出自于健康考虑、宗教信仰或只是个人选择。目前,社会对这些人群并不支持,并且要求他们必须坚定接受这些希望拜托的感受,才能获得各种服务。很多政府也在考虑禁止提供所有相关的咨询或治疗。但目前社会文化的发展存在这样的趋势:如果你不接受同性恋或性别转换,就会对你采取敌视态度。对于我们希望帮助的人群而言,这样的环境让他们无处可去。

IFTCC成立的目的,是让寻求支持的人们可以获得“首选提供者”咨询师的帮助。这些咨询师坚守IFTCC的从业指导原则和道德声明,以共情心对待寻求帮助人群的目标和世界观。他们更注重客户的自主性。

我们与世界各地经验丰富的从业者密切合作,让人们能够获得所需要的帮助。我们还致力于支持共治,打造支持性监管网络,鼓励提供透明、负责而专业的服务。

人们的评价

"The reason for my transgenderism was the fact that I didn’t feel like a man... doesn’t a person have the right to actually go and seek help to change their orientation if it’s causing them distress? Today it’s good … I feel secure in my masculinity. …. at this point in my life I’m happy being a man for the first time in a long time."

John/Jannine

"There are indeed people who are critical of my journey. They don't agree, and they don't believe in change. I, however, respond that my life is more honest now."

Anon

"My gay affairs once worked for me like drugs work for an addict. I wanted to compensate my bad feelings …. Today I rather face my bad feelings."

Emily

"I wasn’t born with these desires but they grew as a result of bullying and exclusion as a teenager."

David (45)

"I found that people who have decided to live as a homosexual got all the support they needed but the people that decided [to] change their lifestyle had no real help."

Anon

"It is ironic that a society that prides itself on individual liberty wants to enforce its values on others."

Mohammed (24 years)

"They provide me tremendous assistance with unwanted same sex attraction and my mental, emotional and psychological health had improved remarkably."

Tzvii (32 years)

"This therapy does not attempt to change an individual from being gay to being straight but rather it helps an individual heal from past hurts and fears."

Callum (41 years)

"I have the right to pursue truth and happiness as I understand it; and that is what this therapy has allowed me to do."

Anon

"I find it unacceptable that bigoted, intolerant people are seeking to disallow others their truth and their happiness, by seeking to ban this type of therapy."

Male, 40

"Gay activists have created a caricature of what they think conversion therapy is and then they talk these politicians into passing a law against this caricature."

Dr Joseph Nicolosi

"'It is not the case that sexual orientation is immutable or might not vary to some extent in a person’s life.' Position Statement PS02/2014 April 2014"

Royal College of Psychiatrists

"My abuse had occurred at an age of ego formation …. negating my normal sexual evolution as a heterosexual male, to be replaced with a sense of non-being, genderless, neither male nor female. [I] sought in vain to find happiness in gay-affirming society and active gay life over the course of 20 years."

Phil, 60

"I do not identify with gay culture, and I don’t want to engage in gay life any more."

Male, 40

"There is a quelling of the ability of people to have information, to make informed decisions about topics like sexual orientation change and sexuality in general."

Dr Christopher Rosik

"It’s so unfortunate that it took me so long to get this ... therapy. It’s just exactly what I would have loved to have had in my late teens. It would have been the answer to all my questions."

Denis (38 years)
