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!

Good lord. What is this, 1919 or 2019? A person’s sexuality and gender identity is part of who they are and the richness they contribute to our community. I can’t believe conversion therapy is even up for discussion. Let’s focus our energy on solving real problems, like lgbtq discrimination.
