摘要

        研究者進行了一項跨越6-7年的準實驗縱貫研究,檢視透過宗教中介的性取向改變─從同性戀轉變為異性戀。原始樣本為參與了各種基督教短宣的72男26女,長期地測量這些人的性吸引力、迷戀和幻想,以及他們的性取向和心理困擾。
 
        從研究證據顯示,同性戀傾向的變化對某些人是可能的,心理困擾的平均數並沒有因涉入改變過程而增加。作者探討了研究方法對於結果類推的限制,以及對於研究結果的其他可能解釋(如性認同改變或適應)。

Abstract

  The authors conducted a quasi-experimental longitudinal study spanning 6–7 years examining attempted religiously mediated sexual orientation change from homosexual orientation to heterosexual orientation. An initial sample was formed of 72 men and 26 women who were involved in a variety of Christian ministries, with measures of sexual attraction, infatuation and fantasy, and composite measures of sexual orientation and psychological distress, administered longitudinally.

Evidence from the study suggested that change of homosexual orientation appears possible for some and that psychological distress did not increase on average as a result of the involvement in the change process. The authors explore methodological limitations circumscribing generalizability of the findings and alternative explanations of the findings, such as sexual identity change or adjustment.
