Conversion Therapy is Unethical
 

I support the proposed guidance to penalize licensees and registrants that provide conversion therapy. When a person performs conversion therapy, they are knowingly causing lasting harm to a patient. This should be unconscionable to the Board of Psychology. This is a good step towards preventing psychological damage to LGBTQ Virginians.
