Coming out, the ordeal of conversion therapy and ‘evil spirits’ with Jacob Bosen
At the age of 16, Jacob Bosen faced the challenge of coming out as a gay man to his friends and family. But that challenge was soon overshadowed by the difficulties of enduring controversial ‘conversion therapy’ as well as a holistic practice not based in science. While his family had the best of intentions in taking him to this therapy, little did they know that the “therapist” had been forced to turn in his Chiropractic license in 1990 due to his “evil-spirit busting” claims. Now years later Jacob has gained insights about resilience, forgiveness, and self-acceptance which he shares with our Relentlessly Resilient hosts today.
Please note: This episode discusses conversion therapy. The teaching of the guest’s therapeutic practitioner does not reflect current scientific or psychological research, or the teachings of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The opinions stated in this podcast are those of the hosts and guest, and do not necessarily reflect the views of KSL Podcasts or any connected entities.
Even though we live in challenging times we can become Relentlessly Resilient as we lean on and learn from one another’s experiences. Hosts Jennie Taylor and Michelle Scharf are no strangers to overcoming adversity; Michelle lost her husband to cancer, while Jennie’s husband Major Brent Taylor was killed in the service of our country. Their stories bond them together and now listeners can join them weekly as they visit with others enduring challenges and who teach us how they are exercising resiliency, finding value in their grief, and purpose in moving forward.
