Ban Conversion Therapy NOW!

I am delighted to here that the VA Board of Counseling is considering putting a ban on conversion therapy. I believe this is also long overdue, especially since there has long been evidence that it does not work. In fact, the evidence points in the direction of conversion therapy being harmful towards those who are put through it. It is unethical and irresponsible for any counselor in this day and age to be practicing this type of therapy. Potential clients deserve to be protected from this harmful practice henceforth.
