A victory, both for science-based medicine and mental health practice. This so-called “therapy” is based on sectarian, religious belief, not scientific research. It is rubbish. It has no more validity — whether for children as in the case before the court or for adults — than laetrile, the Anodyne Necklace and Dynamizer, iridology, the Spectro-Chrome, homeopathy, the use of goat’s testicles, etc. The people who practice this are no better than Walter Freeman, Josef Mengele, et. al. As a society we have a moral obligation to love and protect children and prevent child abuse. This “therapy” just like exorcism, another practice based on religious belief, qualifies as child abuse. Bravo to the court!
