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 is inhumane.

The practice of conversion therapy is inhumane and should be stopped at all costs. Why can't we just accept people who are different and love them as God and Jesus would? You who support this are the worst kind of animal. Perhaps with the radical love God has and continues to show us we can transform them or at least love and accept them. We are not reponsible for their soul/spirit so just leave them alone and pray for them.
