Publisher's Summary

Gay Children, Straight Parents is authored by sexual orientation therapist Richard Cohen, who lived a homosexual life and then came out straight! Today he has been married to his beautiful wife for 38 years and has three adult children. Over the past 30 years as a psychotherapist, Cohen has helped hundreds of parents, family members, and friends who have same-sex attracted (SSA) loved ones.   

This groundbreaking book describes 12 powerful principles to create more loving and intimate relationships within the family and community. You will hear moving testimonies from parents who share their stories of restored relationships as they helped their SSA sons and daughters fulfill their heterosexual potential.   

Gay Children, Straight Parents is a gift for family members and friends and for anyone who wishes to understand how to love men and women who experience either unwanted SSA or are living a gay or lesbian life. Clergy and ministry leaders will find this an invaluable resource.

Not written for 2020.

Not written for 2020.. I accept and love my gay child. I do not want to change her. This book denies their rights to be themselves.

Bigoted narrow-minded religious dogma

How to have god (sic) 'heal' your gay children as 'we are all created hetrosexually'. Research is referenced but never cited nor scientific. A disappointing insight in to religion and its effect on others.

Great

Love this book. Very informative and is just the support I was looking for. My 14 year old son just informed me about his SSA and even though therapists and family have told me to accept it and that he was born that way and that there’s nothing I can do to help him, I’m choosing to fight the battle. This book gives me hope. Thank you Mr. Richard Cohen...
