Scott is being abused and he's paying for it.

Every week Scott visits a building downtown and is emotionally abused. There, he is manipulated dominated, and is viewpoint is devalued. When he leaves his psychotherapist, she says. "Here's your statement."

When Scott began therapy he was never told of informed consent, the process of disclosing the risks inherent in therapy. Nor did he know about the dangers of counter-transferrance, where the therapist's can negatively influence the course the therapy takes.

It's time mental health providers are held accountable when people are harmed by their actions. If you feel you've been harmed by a therapist, you are not alone.
