Virginia Regulatory Town Hall
Department of Health Professions
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. This state currently allows the torture & brain damage of brilliant minds. We are past medieval times. This is cruel and unacceptable, inhumane, unwarranted violence which definitely qualifies as a massive Human Rights Violation. Virginia is for ALL lovers. Remember THAT.
