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
 

Conversion Therapy is detrimental and harmful to the youth of the LGBT community.  One must foster acceptance and inclusion for this community and not risk their health and well being.  Conversion therapy must not be allowed in the state of Virginia and we must teach tolerance and acceptance. We are all born in our own way and being LGBT is just one way, we are born.
