 National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality (NARTH) is a non-profit organization dedicated to "affirming a complementary, male-female model of gender and sexuality".
NARTH is a proponent of the controversial idea that it is possible to alter one's "sexual preferences" or "sexual orientation", that homosexuality is a psychological disorder, and their primary goal is to make reparative therapies available to homosexual men and women who want to try to change their "sexual adaptation".
NARTH's website contains a wealth of clinical and other research which suggests that there is today a widespread propaganda in favour of "normalizing" homosexualily in law and education which ignores many of the real medical and psychological conditions associated with the condition.

While "reparative therapy" relies on secular approaches, "transformational ministry" takes the approach that "freedom from homosexuality is possible through repentance and faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord" (from the website of Exodus International, a "transformational ministry").
NARTH uses a diagnostic label, "same-sex attraction disorder," which is not recognized or used by any of the official professional mental health associations, which no longer consider homosexuality a mental or emotional disorder.
The premise that homosexuality is caused by early-childhood experiences is a common theme that runs through the ex-gay movement and is used by both the secular and religious arms of the movement.

Given that homosexuality is not a mental illness, and in light of the considerable stigma experienced by many gay people, it is likely that people attempt to change their sexual orientation because of the aforementioned social stress factors, as well as pressure from family, society, and church.
As a result, all conversion therapy studies are biased in favor of "cures" because clients of conversion therapy are likely to believe that homosexuality is an undesirable trait to admit and may feel pressure to tell their therapist that the treatment has been successful.
Studies of conversion therapy are not based upon a random sample of homosexuals who are randomly assigned to different treatments and are then compared, but on a group of homosexuals who have sought treatment because they are unhappy with their sexual orientation.
