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.

PLEASE NO BAN ON CONVERSION THERAPY
 

Do not take away parental rights from parents by banning Conversion Therapy which can help students struggling with this issue.  The State is not and should not take the place of the parent.
