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.

Proposed Regulations to limit Counseling options

Do NOT limit counseling options. Let parents help guide their children through this journey without discarding options some families would find helpful. Parents are the first and best teachers and support for their children.  The State does not always know best.
