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.

Please Ban Conversion Therapy

Please ban conversion therapy. This is a barbaric practice that has no place in our society. A ban on conversion therapy is needed to protect children from the psychological harm that this so called "practice" inflicts on children. Let children be who they are!
