Support for Guidance Document 125-9

I am writing to voice my support for Guidance Document 125-9 for guidelines pertaining to the practice of reparative therapy on minors. Repeated studies have shown that efforts to suppress or “cure” a young person that is LGBT+ Are extremely harmful on many levels. Psychologists that are licensed in the commonwealth should absolutely face disciplinary measures if they engage in or encourage this horrendous practice with their young patients. I applaud the Board for taking these steps to protect Virginia’s vulnerable youth from what is essentially child abuse.
