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

The Commonwealth has no role in intervening in someone’s sexuality. The Commonwealth’s job is to protect life and liberty. We all deserve the dignity of getting to be our selves in this country. Ban conversion therapy!
