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.

I strongly oppose the current guidance documents on counseling!!
 

I oppose the suggested changes to the social workers regultions as these changes would : 

1. Deny the social worker their freedom to help those how are that are seeking help with unwanted Same-sex attraction.

2. It would deny the right of an individual that has unwanted same-sex attraction from getting the help he so desires.

3. Pervents a parent from doing what they feel is best for their child
