'Psychotherapeutic'
OUT in Pretoria say they run a 'psychotherapuetic group for gay men' - what the hell does that mean? Are they trying somehow to 'cure' gay guys?

Hi Pretoria, welcome here and thanks for posting.

'Psychotherapeutic' simply means that the support group is facilitated by a psychologist. Nothing more than that - it is merely a marketing trick. All nine Triangle Project support groups are psychotherapetic but we don't market them as such.
