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.

Say NO to ban

Parents and children should have the right to choose the type of counseling/therapy they want. There are many issues today that face children and which confuse them. No agency should control which issues can and cannot be addressed.
