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.

Ban conversion therapy

Conversion therapy needs to be banned because of how hamful it is to the wellbeing of the children who are subjected to this cruel practice. It's not therapy; it's psychological torture. We need to put an end to it. It's ridiculous that it's still an issue.
