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.

There’s nothing therapeutic about conversion “therapy”

Conversion “therapy.”   That’s a misnomer if ever there was one.  It’s psychopathy; not psychotherapy.   LQBTQ people are to be accepted for who they are not forced conform to heteronormative behavior.
