Just what is so important about the NARTH Journal of Human Sexuality, Volume II?

From NARTH

Take a brief look inside:
Volume 2 of the Journal of Human Sexuality
The National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality (NARTH) is a professional and scientific organization committed to promote and ensure a fair reading and a responsible reporting of the scientific research relevant to understanding the factors which contribute to and/or co-occur with homosexuality and which allow psychological care to be effective for those for whom homosexuality is unwanted.

In 2009 NARTH launched the Journal of Human Sexuality (JHS) in service of its mission, and particularly as a way of presenting, encouraging, and producing quality clinical and scientific scholarship on these topics. Volume 1 of JHS reviewed over a century of clinical and scientific reports. Contrary to prior claims by the American Psychological Association (APA), the available evidence leads to one conclusion: Homosexuality is not immutable or without significant risk to medical, psychological and relational health.

This second volume of JHS includes the public release of NARTH’s Practice Guidelines for the Treatment of Unwanted Same-Sex Attractions and Behaviors. The rest of Volume 2 adopts a more traditional journal format, with papers from a variety of authors, on a variety of topics as well as several book reviews. Some of the papers and book reviews were submitted in response to a call for papers, others were invited, and still others were the basis of past convention presentations.
