Ban conversion therapy

If parents want to seek conversation therapy or other methods that have been proven ineffective and harmful, they can choose to seek out someone unlicensed.  Any licensed counselor who has been trained under the guidelines set forth by the ACA and the VA Board of Counseling will be aware of the fact that conversion therapy goes against our code of ethics.  Furthermore, this has absolutely nothing to do with freedoms of speech.  It is about adhering to our promise to “do no harm”.
