Regarding "Conversion Therapy"
I fully support the Guidance Document of the NASW. The ideological rights of neither parents nor religious leaders have been infringed with this Document. Freedom of religion has flourished in the United States, & still does today, thanks to a strong wall of separation between church & state. That said, state-licensed professionals, including social workers, MUST maintain fact-based standards, & "do no harm". Please end the errant, cruel, & stigmatizing practice of so-called "conversion therapy" by licensed professionals. This could be one small step toward forming a "more perfect union". Will you walk forward, into the bright light of reason, & evidence-based science, or backward, into darkness?
