    When Therapy Contradicts itself Conversion therapy (also known as reparative therapy) used to “fix” people who identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, or Transgender (LGBT). This is a cruel therapy that was called reparative therapy in the early 20th century because it was said to repair the indivual in order to fit the norms of society.
