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.

Conversation Therapy should be BANNED in Virginia
Conversation Therapy does nothing but torture people who are in the LGBT community to be straight. I as a straight person think that people in the LGBT community got as much rights to be with whoever they choose and I am appalled by these barbaric practices these doctors are doing and think it should be banned here in the Commonwealth. If Virginia "is for lovers", then prove it by illegalizing conversation Therapy.
