beneath the wheels of injustice, we are to drive a spoke into the wheel itself."Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Letters and Papers from Prison (1943-1945)

A Critique of UKCP’s Ethical Principles and Codes of Professional Conduct:
Guidance on the Practice of Psychological Therapies that Pathologise and/or Seek to Eliminate or Reduce Same Sex Attraction.

Beyond Critique: The Misuse of Science by UK Professional Mental Health Bodies
In this 2nd Edition of the same title, Dermot O’Callaghan’s concerns about the research data of the Royal College of Psychiatrists’ submission to the Church of England’s ‘Listening Exercise’ on human sexuality have been expanded by an additional contributor. Dr Peter May addresses the College’s submission to the Government’s Consultation on Equal Civil Marriage, which recommends same-sex marriage as a Public Health strategy. However, the evidential basis for this is greatly overblown, while wider public health issues are ignored, concerning both same-sex partnering and parenting.
