Virginia Regulatory Town Hall

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.

Protect the freedom of Virginia families to acquire the counseling they choose

Dear Representative,

Please allow the patient/parents to choose which therapy will be best for the patient. If the choice is Reparative Therapy, you should respect that choice.

Thanking you for considering the rights of all people here in the United States of America.
