Coming Out Straight: Understanding and Healing Homosexuality
Available in Hardbound, 2nd Edition Paperback, and CD Series
 
 
This Book Is For:
  - those who struggle with SSA
  - those who have loved ones with SSA
  - therapists and ministry leaders looking to help those with SSA
 
Richard Cohen, former homosexual and psychotherapist, married with 3 children, struggled for much of his life with unwanted same-sex attraction (SSA). He tried desperately to find professionals who understood his condition and help him heal. Because “it was so difficult to explain myself to therapists who didn't have a clue,” Cohen eventually became a psychotherapist and developed both a ground-breaking understanding of same-sex attraction and a comprehensive treatment plan for healing unwanted SSA. Coming Out Straight not only details Cohen’s personal journey out of homosexuality, but also recounts his experiences in helping men, women and adolescents heal their gender identity.

In this groundbreaking book, you will learn the meaning and potential causes of same-sex attraction, the four stages of healing unwanted SSA, and guidance for family members and friends. Laced throughout the book are powerful stories of transformation.

Praise for Coming Out Straight
"In this self-help book, ex-gay psychotherapist Cohen writes for gays and lesbians who want to transition to heterosexuality. His comprehensive, well-written, well-organized, and heavily referenced guide views homosexuality as a symptom of disrupted affiliation with the same-sex parent and incomplete feelings of maleness/femaleness, building on the theories of Joseph Nicolosi and Elizabeth Moberly. Cohen's approach is sympathetic and rational and leans mostly on psychosocial factors, but he also assumes nondenominational religious affiliation."  
The Library Journal, July 2001

"Richard Cohen shares his compelling personal story in which he journeys from homosexuality to a new life as husband and father. The transition has offered him valuable insights into the nature and healing of same-sex attractions."  —Dr. Joseph Nicolosi, Author, Reparative Therapy of Male Homosexuality, Past President, National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality

"I strongly recommend Coming Out Straight for both homosexuals and heterosexuals. It is compassionately written with clarity and precision for those wishing to gain a deeper insight into the dynamics of homosexuality and for those struggling to change."   —Rabbi Samuel Rosenburg, LCSW, Clinical Director, JONAH (Jews Offering New Alternatives to Homosexuality)

Phelan's Practical Exercises will bless the struggler in his journey into manhood, and those who accompany him. This is a long needed resource in the arsenal of tools to help men reclaim their healthy masculine soul."   —Richard Cohen, M.A., Author, Coming Out Straight, and Gay Children, Straight Parents Director, International Healing Foundation

 

"This book is a wonderful hands-on approach to recovery from same-sex attraction. It is full of incisive exercises by a professional who knows what he is talking about. Each exercise is designed to deal with one of the problems that are bound to come up for people going through recovery. These include "Fixing boundary violations" (handling mothers that are too intrusive); "Confront the abusers" (writing letters which may or may not be sent); and "Assessing your percentage of sexual addiction" (a helpful chart that helps users evaluate and manage their addiction). A much needed resource!"  —Gerald Schoenewolf, Ph.D., Author, 101 Therapeutic Successes Director, The Living Center, New York City

 

"Challenging, insightful exercises that will assist men around the globe who wish to grow out of unwanted same-sex attraction and recapture their God-given heterosexuality."

—Elaine Silodor Berk, Co-Director, Jews Offering New Alternatives to Homosexuality (JONAH)

 

"This book fills a void for all therapists in the mental health field because, if used in combination with one's usual therapeutic efforts, it will enable an approach near the therapeutic skills of Same-Sex Attraction Therapists themselves. With this workbook, therapists can almost do what it takes training to do. It is an understatement to call it a 'welcome addition' to the mental health treatment of the homosexual disorder."

—Samuel A. Nigro, M.D., Child, Adolescent Psychiatrist, Cleveland Heights

 

"A basic principle to healing homosexuality is the reclaiming of ownership of oneself. Dr. Phelan provides an aid to the change process with his guidelines for making the subjective, objective; for transforming the reactive to the responsive."  —Joseph Nicolosi, Ph.D., Author, Reparative Therapy of Male Homosexuality Former President, National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality (NARTH)

Light In The Closet

Written by: Arthur Goldberg

 

Arthur Goldberg is involved in the post-struggler movement and serves as the co-director of JONAH, President of PATH, and Board VP of IHF. Mr. Goldberg's new book Light In The Closet: Torah, Homosexuality and the Power to Change uniquely bridges the gap between religion, psychology, and public policy regarding the important issue of same-sex attraction.

 

From personal stories of transformation to Jewish Biblical Principles, intertwined with detailed discussions on today’s cultural climate, this engrossing work will be used as a reference for professionals, those seeking change, and their loved ones. Light In The Closet not only reflects Mr. Goldberg's years of experience, but also his wisdom and compassion. This text should be required reading for every religious institution, public policy forum, health or psychological association, and for those affected by issues of same-sex attraction.

 

This book breaks new ground, explaining the harmony of psychological healing for homosexuality with the classic teachings of Judaism. It also exposes the ''gay gene'' myth and describes the deliberate strategy of gay activists and their allies to culturally sensitize Western society to the point that a large portion of society now seeks to normalize the behavior. By entitling the book Light In The Closet, Mr. Goldberg provides a message of hope and healing for those who seek change.

 

Praise for Light in the Closet

 

"Arthur Goldberg has written a brilliant, compassionate, and remarkably compelling book. I consider it among the best, maybe the best, ever written on the subject not just on homosexuality but of the capacity for the human change of heart, T'Shuvah in the Jewish phrase.''  —Jeffrey Satinover, M.D., Author, Homosexuality and the Politics of Truth

 

"Arthur Goldberg's sweeping and scholarly survey investigates the social, political, spiritual, medical, and personal aspects of same-sex attraction. Written with both compassion and hard-hitting truth, this book unifies the wisdom of the Torah with modern psychology, and in so doing, reveals timeless truths about the human condition."  —Joseph Nicolosi, Ph.D., Author, Reparative Therapy of Male Homosexuality
