      tragic failure of Ex-gay ministries. APA does not support ex-gay
      ministries findings or methods.The claims of these "ex-gays" ministries
      has been repeatedly repudiated by authoritative and credible scientific
      groups. Not one such professional society supports their work. The
      American Psychiatric Association, the American Psychologial
      Association, the American Medical Asociation, the American Counceling
      Association, the National of Social Workers, the National Association
      of School Psychologists, the American School Health Association, the
      American Federation of Teachers, the National Education Association,
      and the American Academy of Pediatrics - all have issued strongly
      worded admonitions combating the idea that homosexuality 1) is a
      disease, 2) can be effectively treated, 3) even needs to be treated.
      The main approach to counceling with gay and lesbian people is help
      them accept and love themselves. ( pope & Barret, 2002 )
