Vote NO to Conversion Therapy in AZ
The addition of a revised SB 1482 as an amendment to SB 1325. This is nothing but another shrouded attempt to allow dangerous "conversion therapy" to continue, with no regulation or disciplinary consequences.
We stand with the American Counseling Association's stance on licensure and conversion therapy:
1) Licensure boards play a vital role in ensuring patient safety and validating counselor education and experience.
2) We oppose conversion therapy because it does not work, can cause harm, and violates our Code of Ethics.
It is an attempt to treat something that is not a mental illness. SB 1482 was voted against just last week. Please vote NO AGAIN on SB 1325. This is bad and harmful legislation for Arizona constituents.
