Here is a typical letter I receive from those who have “successfully” completed Nicolosi’s Reparative Therapy. This just came into my box today from an article I was mentioned in here http://www.freep.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20061116/NEWS01/611160322&template=printart on Thursday November 16, 2006. ____________________ Dear Joe, Thank you for your article.

Hi Everyone, I just wanted to share with you that on Tuesday, April 11, 2006 I will be the expert psychotherapist on the Montel Show on Mixed Orientation Marriages when one spouse is gay and one spouse is straight. The show’s focus was on what to do with couples who want to stay married and […]
It is my hope that this book might be used to challenge those who use the “gender impaired” argument to promote the ex-gay movement. Yes gay men have issues around gender but that does not make them gay–or ex-gay for that matter! This book turns the expression “a man among men” into a love story. […]

An open letter to my 6th grade gym teacher which I mailed today. I believe as gays and lesbians we should go back and confront those who harmed us for being different in our childhood when we can and when it is safe to do. This letter is one way to do it. To not […]

Last night CNN’s show Paula Zahn Now aired a story on “reparative therapy” organization Love in Action. CNN completely ignored vital information on […]
CRUISE CONTROL: A Book for Gay Menby Robert Weiss, MSW, CAS Review by Joe Kort, MSW July 25, 2005 No, this book isn’t about how to control Tom Cruise—although he needs some, given his ignorant advice that no one should be on prescribed medication for depression.

I was contacted by Penn & Teller last January, 2005, and asked if I conducted Reparative Therapy. I told them no and they asked if I knew of someone who did. Well I sent them to Richard Cohen of course knowing who Penn and Teller are and what they would do by featuring him. Sure […]
This article at 365gay.com http://www.365gay.com/newscon05/07/071405childMurd.htm is an illustration of the damage that Reparative Therapy and the ex-gay movement does to children–particularly males. In Preventing Homosexuality by authors and RT’s Joseph Nicolosi and his wife they encourage restrictive gender roles for the children. It is my strong opinion that this is gender abuse to believe that […]
Insurances DO pay for Reparative Therapy! by Joe Kort, MSW I was recently asked how psychotherapists get paid for providing Reparative Therapy (RT) if most mental health organizations have identified it as an unethical and harmful form of treatment.
