Susan Constantine, MPsy, discusses with Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse her Behavior Lab analysis of Sam Brinton and his story. Sam was made a poster child for the Trevor Project as he told his story about the supposed horrors of conversion therapy. He discussed the forced treatment he received which tried to change his sexual orientation, which included shock therapy, electrocution, heat and coils, needles, government killing of people, a suicide attempt, and abuse from his father. She and her team at the Human Behavior Lab analyzed multiple tellings of his story (which is publicly available on social media) to determine whether or not he was being deceptive or truthful.
