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.

Let the people's voice be heard in the Legislature on this matter

This topic must not be resolved by a simple change to licensing.  This bypasses the will of the citizens of the Commenwealth.  Let the all the peoples voices be heard in the legislature on this issue and resolved there.
