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.
 
You cannot change WHO a person IS, anymore than you change the color of their eyes. Please BAN the horrid practice of conversion therapy. It should be considered torture and those practicing it should be held accountable and fined by the Commonwealth.
