Conversion practices: Exploring the science of sexuality - Science Digest

Science Digest

After a long-fought battle from LGBT+ campaigners, this week New Zealand criminalised practices such as conversion therapy that aim to try and alter or suppress someone's sexuality or gender identity.

For this episode of Science Digest, Dr Michelle Dickinson is joined by clinical psychologist, university lecturer and sexuality expert Dr Rita Csako to discuss the science behind sexuality, and conversion therapy survivor and teacher Paul Stevens to share his experiences with the practice.
