Counselors lobbied to block “Conversion Therapy” In the Hawaii Legislature

This spring Dr. Sarah Hodell, HCA President and SandraJoy Eastlack, Past HCA President made moving testimony against the “conversion therapy bill”.  After much debate with Christian leaders in the community, the bill to prevent conversion therapy passed and the Governor will sign it into law tomorrow.  This is a major safe guard for the LGBT community in Hawaii.

According to SandraJoy, our HCA licensure historian, we may expect to see changes in our Hawaii Counselor requirements to keep up with national trends.  Please stay tuned to HCA regarding any changes in licensure requirements.
