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.

Homesexuality is not something that needs to be treated or cured.
Conversion therapy is not therapy. It is a cruel attempt by the uninformed to convince vulnerable LGBTQ people to act normal. They are already normal.
