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.

Ban Conversion Therapy

Conversion therapy is child abuse. It should be completely outlawed. I am flabbergasted that people support this.  An individual cannot be converted from homosexuality to heterosexuality as a result of this. It it preposterous that we are evening discussing this in 2019. Absolutely BAN it.
