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.

Ban conversion therapy
 

I am a retired registered nurse.  All of the legitimate credentialling boards have condemned so-called conversion therapy.  Please protect our citizens in the Commonwealth and enact a ban.
