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.

I am not in support of conversion therapy. It is an attempt to impose a narrow religious view on LGBT citizens, This is not consistent with my religious view where God takes each of us "Just as I am".
