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.

Parenting at home, not the government

All the influences at school are causing stress among our children.  School shootings are usually from children that feel different and not accepted by their peers.  Let parents parent their child.  Don't open up opportunities where children will not get support on an ongoing basis.
