Conversion is not therapy. It is a violation of basic human rights.
Social workers of my era are trained allies to the marginalized and oppressed. We spend time and effort in schooling learning to be culturally competent. This form of therapy is traumatizing. Trauma is my specialty and sadly and proudly the majority of my caseload in private practice are our LGBTQIA+ brethren. Please put a stop to this. Other states have banned this. Virginia, please follow!
