reading the confidentiality I read that there are some exceptions REQUIRED by state law, fedral and HIPPA.
There are actually alot, what stood out to me was;
1) The client's mental condition becomes an issue in a lawsuit
2) For other goverment, peer review or regulatory practices.
Did you get that? For OTHER GOVERMENT, PEER REVIEW or REGULATORY PRACTICES.
So if I file a lawsuit against leats say..... a Police dept. or any other goverment agency; if I spill my guts to a theripst, they I file a suite 30 years later; then that info his testimony can be used in court?
do I even have to explain #2?
