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 pseudoscientific and proven to be extremely harmful. Gay, lesbian, bisexual, transexual people do not need to be "fixed" Virginia needs to make this practice illegal. My child does not need to be erased.
