Handling SOGIECE-related Articles in Behavior Therapy
Membership Update Regarding Handling of SOGIECE-related Articles in Behavior Therapy
ABCT recognizes the importance of keeping the membership updated regarding handling of articles in the Behavior Therapy archive that contain material that is problematically used in support of Sexual and Gender Identity and Expression Change Efforts (SOGIECEs). Subsequent to our last update to membership, Behavior Therapy’s Editorial Board appointed a taskforce to review every article prior to 1995 and identify any articles that have relevance to the SOGIECE practices.
This taskforce was appointed in 2022 and aims to conclude the work by June 2023. The members of the taskforce are as follows, Jonathan S. Comer, Ph.D. (Chair; Editor, Behavior Therapy), Diane Chen, Ph.D., Claire A. Coyne, Ph.D., Christopher Georgiadis, M.S., Omar Gudiño, Ph.D., Nikolaos Kazantzis, Ph.D., David A. Langer, Ph.D., Richard Lebeau, Ph.D., Richard Liu, Ph.D., Carmen McLean, Ph.D., John Pachankis, Ph.D., Katie Schmarder, B.A., Denise Sloan, Ph.D., and Monnica Williams, Ph.D. ABCT will share more details about next steps taken by Behavior Therapy on these articles when the process has concluded in June. We appreciate the patience of our membership as we have made every effort to engage in the process with intention and care.
