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.

No laws based on religion

No law or government policy should be based solely on a religious text.  I believe that not only is conversion therapy a display of ignorance and an abuse on the person, but also an infringement of the establishment clause of the First Amendment of the US Constitution.
