Guidance Document Change: Consistent with the established position of the NASW, the Board considers “conversion therapy” or “sexual orientation change efforts” to be services that have the potential to be a danger to clients, especially minors. Thus, under regulations governing practitioners licensed or registered by the Board, practicing conversion therapy/sexual orientation change efforts with minors could result in a finding of misconduct and disciplinary action against the licensee or registrant.

Opposition to current guidance documents on counseling
 
I would loike to stste that I oppose the suggested changes to the social workers regulations as these changes would: 1. deny social workers their freedom to help those who want counseling to overcome unwanted same-sex attraction or gender confusion. 2. prevent parents from getting help for their child as they deem best. 3. deny patients with unwanted same-sex attraction or gender confusion to get the desired counseling to overcome these feelings your comments here. You are limited to approximately 3000 words.
