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 a disgusting and  inhumane practice that is only supported by bigots. It strips away a child’s basic sense of self and tells them that who they are isn’t good enough. Only the most abusive, unloving  parent would subject their children to this kind of torture. God made your children the way they are supposed to be, if you try to change that then you’re saying God made a mistake. God doesn’t make mistakes.
