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.

back door hidden agenda
  • Thus far, those who have been entrusted with making decisions for our children have failed miserably in simply educating the children in school.  Public schools have become nothing more than indoctrination day camps.  Therefore, those paid to simply educate have all proven to have some other agenda, other than simply educating the youth of our country.  The Board of Social Work seeks to do the same thing, which is to advance their agenda, rather than truly helping children in need.  Their proposal is misguided and unconstitutional and it seeks to deny families the religious freedom to seek counseling aligned with their faith.  In short, this is a back door to oppositing religious liberty which is unconstitutional.
