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 oppose this change to the counseling guidelines
 
I oppose the suggested changes to the social workers regulations as these changes would deny social workers full freedom to help the young people they are counseling and prevent parents from getting help for their child as they deem best.
