Conversion Therapy: An Archaic Practice. Shall We Go Back to Burning Wirches at the Stake?
When a social worker receives their liscesure from a state board, that board should have the right to rebuke whatever practices have time and time again proven to be to the detriment of the very patients they aim to serve. The argument that a guidance measure will take away the rights of the religious parent to make decisions for their children is absurd. The right to speak about orientation and chastity to religious counsel is still preserved as religious counsel does not obtain liscensure from the state board Department of Health Professionals. Furthermore, this is not a forum regarding a legislative “ban” but one regarding regulations for the disciplinary actions of health professionals. That seems to be lost on commenters. Please use these guidance measures to deter liscensed professionals from engaging in such an archaic, harmful practice as conversion therapy.
