Abstract

The author describes three investigations that attempted to give objective evidence of the value of several types of aversion therapy in the treatment of homosexuality. The results were favorable but they showed little difference in the efficacy of the various aversion therapies. The findings did suggest, however, that aversion therapy does not act by setting up conditioned reflexes, as is generally supposed.
