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 stop punishing people for being who they are.
 
Please stop this torture. Conversion therapy has never worked, and has resulted in a much higher suicide rate among people that have been put through it. Let's offer love and support instead of shame and hate.
