• Reparative or Conversion Therapy

    The American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) opposes the use of “reparative” or “conversion” therapy for sexual and gender minority individuals of all ages.  The AAFP recommends that patients and their families seek services that provide accurate information on sexual orientation and sexuality, gender identity, and increase social support, and reduce stigma and rejection of sexual and gender minority persons.
