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.

Do you know that during conversion therapy, they show pornography to children? Also, it doesn’t work! Being gay is not something that can or should be changed. I cannot beilieve we are debating this in 2018. Conversion therapy hurts children.
