In this first of two events about sexual orientation, change, and healing we will hear from Dr. John Dehlin about his large-scale research on religiously-motivated attempts to change sexual orientation.
John Dehlin received a Ph.D. in Clinical and Counseling Psychology from Utah State University in 2015. His research interests involve the nexus of religion and mental health. John’s research has been published in numerous peer reviewed scientific journals including the Journal of Counseling Psychology (APA), the Journal of Sex & Marital Therapy, Identity, the Journal of Cognitive Psychotherapy, the Journal of Homosexuality, and the Journal for the Scientific Study of Religion.
John’s work has been featured in the New York Times, National Public Radio, ABC’s Good Morning America, ABC’s Nightline, the Wall Street Journal, the Huffington Post, VH1, and RadioWest.
Our second event on this topic features a panel of LGBT+ Christians sharing their stories about efforts to change their orientation. With Julie Rodgers, Nate Collins, Darren Calhoun, and Lindsey Nelson, March 7, 7pm in the CFAC Recital Hall.
