SKU: STS101 Category:


    This is a unique and first of its kind course on Subsequent Therapists evaluations of former therapists. The term “Subsequent Therapist Syndrome” is used to refer to those circumstances where the subsequent (current, next or new) psychotherapist may act unethically, clinically inappropriately, or even illegally when providing an expert or conclusive opinion regarding a former therapist’s (supposedly) unethical, inappropriate or illegal conduct. These are the cases where the subsequent therapist’s evaluation and judgment are solely based on client’s self-report, their theoretical bias and/or their rigid view of therapeutic boundaries. These are the situations where the “ST” arrives at firm and clear conclusions without reviewing the psychotherapy records or other relevant collateral evidence, or without consulting the former therapist.
