Everyone knows someone with a homosexual orientation--a neighbor, co-worker, relative, or friend. Coming Out Straight sheds light on a long misunderstood subject. Questions such as what causes same-sex attraction and how one can transition from gay to straight are addressed. Illustrated by those who successfully transitioned, this book is engrossing, illuminating, and for many, an answer to prayer. Although it may create controversy, it is destined to heal many lives--a loved one ... or maybe yours

Richard Cohen, a former homosexual, now married to his wife with three children, struggled for many years with
unwanted same-sex attraction. 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 a groundbreaking understanding of same-sex attraction and comprehensive plan for healing. Coming Out Straight not only details Cohen's personal journey out of homosexuality, but also recounts his experiences over the past 25 years helping thousands of men and women resolve their unwanted same-sex attraction and fulfill their heterosexual potential.

"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."
--Joseph Nicolosi, Ph.D.
Author, Reparative Therapy of Male Homosexuality

"This book is a testament to a heroic and successful struggle to regain one's heterosexual identity. It gives hope to many."
--Charles Socarides, M.D.
Author, Homosexuality: A Freedom Too Far

"In his self-help book...ex-gay therapist 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 psychological theories of Joseph Nicolosi and Elizabeth Moberly."
