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.

Conversion Therapy is not a therapeutic treatment. It’s bull crap pushed by evangelicals.
 

1st and foremost this is not an accepted treatment by professionals in the mental health field. This is a torture created by evangelicals and run by laymen. Kids commit suicide after this has been done to them. Stand up for what’s right.
