Conversion therapy is dangerous, and it doesn't belong in our discipline
 

I am in strong support of the guidance above. Conversion is not evidence-based practice. It should not be considered in the same domain as EMDR, CBT, and other treatments. I have worked with adults suffering with the aftermath of shame and guilt from it. I am horrified that we can't stop it all together, but I am glad to have it cast out of our field.
