Banning Conversion Therapy

In case you weren't made aware through membership with the ACA, the Pennsylvania State Senate  is considering a bill that would ban conversion therapy on minors.  The American Counseling Association formally opposes conversion therapy because it violates our Code of Ethics, can and does cause harm to clients, and attempts to provide "therapy" to something that is not a mental disorder. 

PCA would greatly appreciate your support in making a ban on conversion therapy a reality in Pennsylvania. If you're willing, please click the link below to log in and send your message:

Hope all is well,

President, Pennsylvania Counseling Association
