Sexual Orientation and Mental Health: Incremental Progression or Radical Change?
Author: HEATHER WYATT-NICHOL
Published in JHHSA, Vol. 37 No. 2

The declassification and reclassification of homosexuality in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders is addressed. While the DSM reclassifications represent a slow shift toward the acceptance of homosexuality within the fields of psychiatry and psychology, the APA of the present represents a radical shift from the past.
