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.

The issue is not conversion therapy.

The issue is the looming threat to the freedom of VA parents to make, not only all treatment decisions for their children, but also to be in direct communication with their childen's teatment providers. Get elected officials out of the lives of private citizens!
