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 on therapy

Please maintain parental rights & religious liberty rights and do not change the regulations governing therapy. If the legislature couldn't pass the laws, then it's evident the people don't want these changes! Thank you for your consideration.
