2019 Consumer Brochure  

 

August 13, 2019

 

Good morning Board of Psychology Stakeholders,

The Board of Psychology is pleased to share the newly revised consumer brochure Therapy Never Includes Sexual Behavior. This brochure revision was completed in coordination with the Board of Behavioral Sciences, the Medical Board of California, the Osteopathic Medical Board of California, and the Department of Consumer Affairs. 

The Therapy Never Includes Sexual Behavior brochure informs consumers that therapy never includes sexual contact (e.g. intercourse or touching of an intimate body part) between a therapist and a client, inappropriate sexual suggestions, or any other kind of sexual behavior between a therapist and a client. The revised brochure informs consumers of potential warning signs of inappropriate sexual behavior, their rights as a patient, information on where to get help if they have been the victim of sexual behavior by a therapist or former therapist, and how to file a complaint with the appropriate licensing entity. 

The revised Therapy Never Includes Sexual Behavior brochure is available for download on the Department of Consumer Affairs website at the following locations:

•           Printer Friendly Version – https://www.dca.ca.gov/publications/proftherapy.pdf

•           ADA Compliant Version – https://www.dca.ca.gov/publications/proftherapy.shtml

To order paper copies of the new brochure, please email bopmail@dca.ca.gov. Please note that up to five (5) copies will be provided free of charge but for larger orders payment for the cost of the printing may be required. 

Special Note to Board Licensees and Supervisors:

•           "Sexual behavior" is defined as inappropriate contact or communication of a sexual nature. Note: this does not include the provision of appropriate therapeutic interventions relating to sexual issues.

•           If a licensee or their employer becomes aware of any alleged incident(s) of sexual intercourse, touching of an intimate body part, or sexual behavior(s) between a previous psychotherapist of a client or patient during the course of previous treatment(s), the licensee must provide the client or patient a copy of the brochure Therapy Never Includes Sexual Behavior and discuss the brochure with the client or patient.

•           Primary supervisors are required to review the Therapy Never Includes Sex Behavior brochure with their trainees.

For additional information on legal requirements related to this brochure, please see the Board’s Legislative Advisory: AB 2968 (Levine) available here https://www.psychology.ca.gov/laws_regs/leg_ab2968.shtml

Thank you, 

The California Board of Psychology
