Councilmember Lorena González (Citywide) discusses an ordinance to prohibit conversion therapy for minors in Seattle ahead of the Council committee consideration. The legislation would add a new chapter to the City's existing human rights code and would prohibit licensed mental health providers from practicing conversion therapy on minor children by making it a civil violation penalized by a fee of up to $1,000. Conversion therapy is a widely discredited practice that claims to use therapeutic tools to "cure" people of their same-sex attractions or non-conforming gender identity.
