Subject:Re: Are Therapists Potentially Dangerous?

Toni,

My biggest concern about therapists is those who do not stay on top on their continuing education and ultimately practice outside their area of expertise. For example, the child abuse field is ever evolving and requires therapists to regularly attend reputable trainings and conferences by the leaders in the field, to read current books and journals, and to participate in peer supervision, etc.



However, many view their degrees as terminal and therefore only do the minimum to keep their licenses current. I have even had colleagues question why I attend so many conferences. So, I see their attitude about continuing education and their lack professional knowledge as often dangerous to clients.



This is an interesting topic. Good Luck, Viola

dangerous?





I have examples from my own mistakes and those I have seen with

others. Do any of you have concerns about the efficacy of

therapists? Are you willing to share with me the concerns? If I were

to use the example in a lecture or paper, it would be anonymous.
