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.

Conversion Therapy, Help or Torture?
To be completely honest, this way is unethical toward any member of the LGBTQ+ Community. The act of this therapy is nothing short of torture and brainwashing. The true heresy are not the people who have their own opinions, but rather the therapist trying to change that. This is wrong in every way and should be banned. Period.
