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 Counselling
To whom it may concern: I oppose the current Guidance documents on counselling. It denies services desired by patients, it usurps parental rights, it violates social worker free speech and potentially life-saving practices, and ot violates U.S. Constitution and Virginia Statutes and the will of Virginians and their elected representatives in the General Assembly. Thank you very much. Sincerely Yours Carlton W. Kennedy Jr.
