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.

Protect parental eight & religious freedom in the counseling of children

Protect and main parental rights & religious liberty rights and do not change the regulations governing the counseling of children. There is no need of government interference! Thank you for your consideration.
