xanadian: The patient decided to break confidentiality?

Stupid AF, but not illegal.

/probably


Can't think of any circumstance where this would be appropriate or legal. If it was appropriate, written and signed Informed Consent would be required for each session.

Licenced Psychologist or Psychiatrist is staring at deregistration and/or prosecution with this shiat,,,

And support your damaged friend.
But no.

"My daughter was on the phone with Maya, looking very intent as she listened-she wasn't speaking at all. Then suddenly she muted the phone and told me: "Maya's in a therapy session right now. She called me during it so I can listen, so I can hear for myself how bad it is."

Maya needs to put some distance between herself and this "friend"....

I'm sure all 12 pages of that are fascinating, but I'm not reading through it all. Can you point me toward the part that concerns a patient sharing what happens in a session?  Because that's what the article is about.

I would tell her to get better friends who aren't going to end up as trainwrecks that will drag her down.
