In Support of HB2458: Ban on Conversion Therapy

12 Feb 2023 6:30 AM | Anonymous

Dear colleagues,

Conversion therapy (also known as reparative therapy, reorientation therapy, sexual orientation change efforts, or gender identity change efforts) is the discredited practice of using "therapy" or "counseling" to "treat" same-gender/sex attraction, gender non-conformity, and those identifying as being lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, or another sexual or gender minority. The Oregon Counseling Association opposes conversion therapy: It does not work, it causes harm, and it violates the ACA and AAMFT Codes of Ethics. It is an attempt to treat something that is not a mental illness; something that does not need treatment. 

Please see the information below on this momentous bill and follow ORSAIGE and ORCA for updates.

Thank you for your support.

Dr. Kaj Kayij-Wint, LMFT, ORCA President
