International Healing FoundationThe International Healing Foundation directed by Richard Cohen, M.A., calls homosexuality a Same-Sex Attachment Disorder (SSAD) and has developed a program of reparative therapy to help homosexuals who wish to transition to heterosexuality. Cohen initially based his ideas on the teachings of the Unification Church, but in the late 1990s he announced a break with the church and recast his ideas in almost purely psychological terms.
The following outlines the IHF's theory of the meaning and causes of homosexual orientation and their four-stage model of recovery.
