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.

I OPPOSE conversion “therapy.”
 

I vehemently oppose the torture known as “conversion therapy!” It is NOT an effective “treatment.” LGBTQ persons do not need to be “cured” or forced to live in a way that is not true to who they are! As the mother of an LGBTQ daughter, I love her EXACTLY how she is and I am proud of her impact in this world.
