Past Event : Naming and shaming therapists: Protecting the public or harming therapy? - Dr Philip Cox



Event Title:   Naming and shaming therapists: Protecting the public or harming therapy?


Dr Cox explains that the key professional registration bodies report an increase in the number of formal complaints. He asks is it because the codes of ethics to protect the public from unethical and incompetent practices have been updated. Or is it because more people attending therapy report experiencing their therapy as harmful?
