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!!!

I overwhelmingly support the Guidance proposing a ban on conversion therapy for the Board of Social Work.  We know how harmful and dangerous this is for our youth.  DO THE RIGHT THING!!
