Response to the Court
Ruling Overturning the Ban on Conversion Therapy
NASW-FL has issued a statement on a recent court ruling overturning a ban on conversion therapy for children under 18. We expect legislation banning conversion therapy to be introduced this session in the Florida Legislature.
NASW-FL will support this legislation as outlined in our 2021 Legislative Priorities. A special thanks to NASW members Allan Barsky, PhD, MSW and Fabio A. Naranjo, PhD, MSW for their input on the statement.
