Support for Conversion Therapy Ban
 

I am writing to support a ban on Conversion Therapy. This "intervention" is not ethical and is only harmful and traumatizing for clients who are subjected to this method. This "therapy" does not let people express their identity and creates shame in a person. Conversion Therapy has negative consequences for clients and should be banned as ethical practice in counseling.
