(NaturalNews) If you are not aware of the potential horrors of hiring a mental health counselor, you should be. Listen to this episode of Mental Health Exposed with Mike Bundrant and expert guest Noah Rubinstein.
Stories abound. Therapists have been know to have sex with clients, start businesses with them, punish them physically, borrow money, engage in emotionally cruel behavior (like saying: You are the most disturbed person I have ever treated and I see no hope for you) and more.
It isn't pretty.
The point is, among the thousands of competent and ethical mental health counselors in the world, there are some very bad apples. These are people who attempt to get their own needs met at the expense of their clients.
The problem is, how can you tell the difference before you get involved? The best defense is to educate yourself. A good therapist can change your life by helping you solve lifelong problems that you could not have solved on your own. However, you need to be an informed consumer.
This is why licensed marriage and family therapist Noah Rubinstein started GoodTherapy.org. He got tired of hearing stories from his own clients about how they were taken advantage of by their previous therapist.
Beyond these obvious issues, Noah saw other problems within the mental health system, like the tendency of counselors to view people as deficient or fundamentally flawed, an outcome of the medical model, which is known for seeing problems and treating symptoms rather than people.
So, Noah decided to do something about it. Hear his story on this week's episode of Mental Health Exposed.
In this episode we cover:
• The mission of GoodTherapy.org • The problem of therapists misusing their power. • Dual relationships - what are they and what's wrong with them? • What good therapy really is. • Much more...
For anyone considering therapy, or currently in therapy, this episode may contain the most important information you will ever hear. Educate yourself.
