Unlike Beck too, Ellis refuses to approach the clients with support and acceptance as he doesn’t want patients to feel like as if their therapist are being nice because they are behaving appropriately; as if the therapist have a certain expectation from the client. Ellis prefers to build the therapeutic relationship with patient in a more confronting way. This approaching method are always seen as harsh, gaining critics especially to those who stereotypes therapy session as clients seeking comfort and support – not being scolded and told how to change their way of viewing life. Though it is believed as the time goes on, REBT practitioner is not as vigorous as Ellis does when confronting with clients.
Homosexual Indifference The times seem to be changing in acceptance of homosexual relationships for the better, but many laws as well as society still prohibit gay marriage and adoption. There are two sources which I will use to show different view points on gay marriage and adoption. The first is an article written by Andrew Sullivan, titled “Let Gays Marry.” This is written as an informal piece to argue that gay people should be allowed to marry one another. The next is also on gay marriage, but in this article, “Leave Marriage Alone,” author William Bennett writes that it is wrong for gays to marry. These two authors show separate feelings on the issue of gay marriage, while attempting to persuade the readers to agree with them.

Johnson Nicolosi, believe that conversion therapy is actually effective in changing people’s sexual attraction from the same sex to the opposite sex. They are convinced that homosexual people who aren’t accepting of themselves seek out help to “convert” that. The truth is, someone who is unaccepting just needs time. We live in a world where being different is frowned upon and it’s often that our parents influence our views. In most cases, a homosexual teenager who is raised by religious parents will grow up thinking being gay is a sin, because that’s what the bible says.
There may be personal bias with the counselor and/or the individual. If the bias isn 't recognized and identified, it could create a barrier to the relationship and therapeutic relationship (p. 482). Possible Impact of Cultural Affiliations between the Counselor and Individuals Both the counselor and the individual 's religious or spiritual views could impact the relationship (p. 485). The counselor 's views on homosexuality should be explored. There also might be an internal struggle with the client that identifies with a certain religion that views homosexuality as “wrong.” On page 477, Sue D. & Sue D. (2013) explain that gay-straight alliances along with anti-bulling policies reduces harassment and can lower suicide risk.
al). In 2009, Dr. Warren Throckmorton, a psychologist at the Christian Grove City College, noted in response to an analysis that “the research on sexual abuse among LGBT populations is often misused to make inferences about causation [of homosexuality]”. They think that these methods would serve as a solution to end their homosexuality when in reality all it will do is leave permanent psychological scars.

In today’s news and media, it seems that the topic of homosexuality and whether it is morally acceptable or unacceptable is brought up on a daily occurrence. Many individuals believe that homosexuality is a problem and ceremonies such as gay marriage should not be allowed. However, what is it that makes homosexuality considered wrong? Critics argue that homosexuality goes against the Bible—the word of God—and is immoral. The issue of homosexuality, however, is argued further when considering the topic of sexual ethics; homosexuality is not the only aspect of sexual ethics but also what is good and what is the purpose of sex and taboo situations such as incest, rape, pre-marriageable sex, monogamy and polygamy.
The world today is surrounded with many controversial issues. One such issue would be the topic of gay marriage. This country has grown around one major tradition, being the definition of marriage. It’s more-less looked at as a religious or legal commitment between a women and man, to express their love and compassion towards one another, being the last and final step there is to take with that significant other. Homosexual relationships are rapidly gaining acceptance in this country.
Taoism texts are, intentionally, vague in their writing. Interpretation of how to live according to the Tao is meant to be discovered by individuals throughout their lives. The main points of focus for discovering insight into Taoist views on homosexuality are in the beliefs of the balance of yin and yang energies and the purpose of sex (which will later be simultaneously compared to Roman Catholic views). Although these two focuses seem straightforward, their interpretations do vary. Yin and Yang Liang Shi (2013) describes yin and yang as “equal and interdependent” and as “…the two forces are in constant flux and capable of changing into each other” (p. 765).
