Last Chance for In-person Sign-ups!

The hard cut-off to attend this weekend’s Survivors’ Summit, “Reclaiming the Professions for Life and Family,” is this Wednesday, noon CT. Register now for in-person attendance in Lake Charles, LA, or for a Virtual Conference Pass.

Ruth Institute President, Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., said, “This will be our most important Summit to date. If you want to help reclaim the professions and gain valuable insights into the issues family activists deal with most often, this will be the place to be Friday and Saturday.”


Morse, who will give the opening address on “Confronting the Corruption of the Professions,” noted: “Once-respected professions have become megaphones for the Sexual Revolution. When it comes to issues like transgenderism, their positions are based on ideology, not science.”

The Summit will include a Friday, application-only, Ambassador’s Training Program for members of the pro-life and pro-family movements, followed by an Awards Banquet with guest speaker Rev. Walter Hoye, Founder and President of both the Issues4Life Foundation and the California Civil Rights Foundation.

The day-long Saturday conference will include:

Reclaiming the Therapeutic Professions with Fr. Paul Sullins on “Correcting the Data,” Laura Haynes of the International Federation for Therapeutic and Counseling Choice, and Susan Constantine, Uncovering Deception author and founder of the Human Behavior Lab.

Resisting the Corruption of Education with Sharon Slater, president of Family Watch International, followed by a panel on Legal Strategies for Reclaiming Education.

A Panel of Medical Professionals including Dr. Michael Parker of the Catholic Medical Association; Dr. Donna Harrison, Executive Director of the American Association of Pro-Life Ob-Gyns; and Dr. Quentin Van Meter, President of the American College of Pediatricians.

Defending the Body with Erin Brewer of Partners for Ethical Care, Fr. Sebastian Walshe of Catholic Answers, and Jackie Aguilar on“Natural Womanhood.”

Putting the Pieces Together: Equipping the Pro-life Movement to Confront Trans-Minded Clients with radio show host Jim Havens moderating, de-transitioner Walt Heyer on defending the body and helping the vulnerable, therapist Erin Brewer on the psychology of the trans-minded client, and attorney Jane Robbins on the trans suicide issue.

Surviving the Sexual Revolution with Katy Faust of Them Before Us, Rev. Walter Hoye on what the sexual revolution has done to the Black community, and Denise Shick on being the daughter of a trans father.

“I’m very proud of the team we have assembled for this year’s Summit for Survivors of the Sexual Revolution,” Morse said. “The Sexual Revolutionaries count on people being isolated in their fields, but the same problems are common across many professions, including law, medicine, therapy, and education.”

Pro-Family/Pro-Life leaders and activists still have an opportunity to participate in the Summit and benefit from the wealth of expert input by registering for a Virtual Conference Pass, if not in person by signing up before this Wednesday at noon CT.

 

The Ruth Institute is a global non-profit organization, leading an international interfaith coalition to defend the family and build a civilization of love.

Reclaiming Therapeutic Professions a Key Topic at Ruth Inst. Summit

Reclaiming Therapeutic Professions a Key Topic at Ruth Inst. Summit

How the therapeutic professions have become a handmaiden for the Sexual Revolution will highlight the Ruth Institute 2021 Summit, “Reclaiming the Professions for Life and Family,” July 16-17 in Lake Charles, LA.

“Therapy has become politicized. Therapists have turned from science to dogma,” said Ruth Institute President, Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D. “Is it really out of the question for a person who once identified as ‘gay’ or ‘lesbian’ to choose a different identity or way of life?"

The session on “Reclaiming the Therapeutic Professions” will feature these experts:


Dr. Laura Haynes retired from psychological clinical practice after more than 40 years. She now speaks and writes about same-sex attraction and discordant gender-sex identity change. She served on the board of the International Federation for Therapeutic and Counseling Choice and chaired a committee of the National Task Force for Therapy Equality. Dr. Haynes worked on research for the Alliance for Therapeutic Choice and Scientific Integrity and was a consultant for the American College of Pediatricians. She also served as president the Christian Association for Psychological Studies, Western Region. She is a member of the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists and the American Psychological Association.

Susan Constantine, MPsy, has more than 17 years’ experience analyzing jurors, witnesses, and suspects. She has consulted as the human behavior expert for some of the world’s most noteworthy trials, including George Floyd, Michael Jackson, Bill Cosby, and Jerry Sandusky. She has appeared in over 1,000 national and international television programs such as CNN, Fox, Dateline 20/20, Dr. Phil, Dr. Drew, Discovery Channel, Good Morning America, and The Today Show. She has published in the Washington Post, Capitol Hill, New York Times, and the New York Post. She has trained FBI and Homeland Security agents, The Department of Defense Inspector General, Federal Court Judicial Law Judges and attorneys in hundreds of private law firms on how to read facial expressions, emotions, and body language, and how to detect deception and emotional/cognitive processing. Her masterclass, “How to Spot a Liar in 7 Seconds or Less,” releases this month.

Fr. Paul Sullins, Ph.D., is a Senior Research Associate of the Ruth Institute. He recently retired as a Professor of Sociology at the Catholic University of America in Washington, DC. Dr. Sullins is a leader in the field of research on same-sex parenting and its implications for child development. He has written four books and over 100 journal articles, research reports, and essays on issues of family, faith, and culture. His reports on clerical sexual abuse from the Pennsylvania Grand Jury data, John Jay data, LA Times, and other sources have garnered international acclaim.

“Is it impossible to believe a person who experiences same-sex attraction might not want to act on those feelings?” Morse asked. “Yet, to the guardians of the therapeutic professions, this is the new taboo. If the Sexual Revolutionaries have their way, therapists will be legally forbidden to assist clients who want to change. At the Summit, we will discuss the growing body of evidence that people can change their patterns of attractions and behaviors.”

Attendance at the “Reclaiming the Professions for Life and Family” Summit can be in person or on-line with a Virtual Conference Pass.

Ruth Inst. Promotes Reality, Opens Transgender Resource Center

Ruth Inst. Promotes Reality, Opens Transgender Resource Center

“Our Transgender Resource Center is an invaluable tool for those opposed to the transgender ideology,” said Ruth Institute President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D.

“Transgenderism is a fraud. An individual can no more change his sex than his species. It’s imprinted in his DNA. A man born a man, and a woman born a woman, will remain such until the end of his or her life. Neither surgery nor hormone therapy will change that,” Morse said.

The opening of the Transgender Resource Center comes on the eve of the “Transgender Day of Visibility,” March 31.


“I’m not sure ‘Resource Center’ adequately describes what’s available here,” Morse said. “There are stories such as Maritza’s, who lived as a female to male transsexual for 17 years before detransitioning, as well as links to outspoken detransitioner, Walt Heyer, author of Trans Life Survivors.

“There are important interviews with doctors on the front lines, such as Dr. Michelle Cretella, who has analyzed gender dysphoria in depth, and Dr. Andre Von Mol, who successfully challenged the claim that surgery improved the mental health of gender dysphoric patients.

Dr. Erin Brewer tells her story of being sexually assaulted as a child, deciding that being a boy would keep her safe, and ultimately being protected from a lifetime of transgenderism by a sensitive therapist.

“We have resources for teachers and school administrators, such as the School Resource Guide from the Child and Parental Rights Campaign, and resources for parents, such as the Parent Resource Guide from the Minnesota Family Council.”

Morse added: “They’ll say we’re hateful for sharing these stories and providing these resources. But the transgender movement is doing irreparable harm, especially to impressionable adolescents, and that’s the ultimate form of hate. The truth may be unpleasant – even painful – but it’s never hateful. Denying reality is what causes the greatest harm in the long run.

“The significance of the transgender movement goes far beyond one piece of legislation, one nomination, or one day designated to celebrate transgenderism. It’s a movement that seeks to upend reality. That’s why the Ruth Institute’s Transgender Resource Center is so timely and so crucial for those fighting gender dystopia.”
