Non-ethical, not evidence-based, abhorrent practice

Conversion "therapy" is not only unethical for counselors to provide, it is severely damaging to the individuals who are forced to participate and is not evidence-based either. There is absolutely no research that supports this as a viable resource for individuals and the roots of this type of "therapy" are deeply troubling. There is no place for this type of service anywhere. Our LGBTQ+ consumers deserve so much better. I stand with all those who oppose the abhorrent practice.
