The New York City Chapter of the National Association of Social Workers  representing over 7,000 members in the city of New York, strongly supports the A.3977 (Glick) / S.263 (Hoylman) bill. This bill will prevent mental health professionals from providing sexual orientation change efforts to minors by defining such activities as professional misconduct.  The NASW code of ethics states that we must respect the dignity and worth of a person, treat each person in a caring and respectful fashion, and be mindful of individual differences including cultural and ethnic diversity.
