April 3, 2023: The Complaint Process and Dealing with Harassment around Therapy Abuse
This program deals with the issue of therapy abuse and as such it may have material that folks find triggering of abuse.
Bernadine chats with past guest, Carolyn Clement (award-winning photographer and survivor of sibling, child, and therapy abuse) on her experience of making a complaint with her State Licensing Board around the abuse experienced at the hands of her predatory therapist. She was successful in ensuring this therapist had to relinquish his license to practice. We also discuss the type of harassment she experienced after placing the complaint from him and, shockingly, his wife.
Afterwards, Bernadine outlines some of the ways predatory therapists harass their victims but also what to do about it and how to preserve that harassment as evidence.
Therapy abuse is financial, physical, emotional, and sexual exploitation of a client by a therapist.
