Review:

"The author presents a new theory of the origin and treatment of homosexuality that differs from the model presently accepted by most psychotherapists. Van den Aardweg, a Dutch analyst, contends that homosexuality is a form of neurosis that can and should be treated--rather than, as many now feel, a normal alternative sexual orientation based on biological causes. The author interprets his evidence to show that adult homosexuals were self-pitying children who did not feel like other members of their sex; that is, they felt less masculine or less feminine. He further argues that a chronic pattern of inner complaining established in childhood works to repress the `normal' sexual orientation of these clients.... Appropriate for university collections." -- Choice
