The study examined the efficacy of multimodal therapy in the management of homosexuality in a 35-year-old man, using a single N or case study design. Clinical interview, EPQ (adult), SCL-90, MFS, MSI and ISE were administered to establish base-line data. Anxiety, depression, marital distress and low self-esteem were identified as correlates of the client's condition. Multimodal therapy was instituted thereafter. The result after three months of treatment showed reduction in sexual attraction for men, increased attraction to females, reduced frequency of masturbation, lowered marital distress and improved psychological well-being. The results were discussed in the light of the controversies surrounding the treatment of homosexuality.
