Benefits and Reasons to go to Individual Therapy

Individual Therapy

There are a lot of people suffering from a mental health condition who need therapy. And there are a lot of therapists who want to help them.

12 Step Meetings & Therapist Confidentiality

The Twelve Traditions encourage members to practice the spiritual principle of anonymity in the public media and members are also asked to respect each other’s confidentiality.[42] This is a group norm,[42] however, and not legally mandated; there are no legal consequences to discourage those attending twelve-step groups from revealing information disclosed during meetings.[43] Statutes on group therapy do not encompass those associations that lack a professional therapist or clergyman to whom confidentiality and privilege might apply. Professionals and paraprofessionals who refer patients to these groups, to avoid both civil liability and licensure problems, have been advised that they should alert their patients that, at any time, their statements made in meetings may be disclosed.[43] wikipedia.org
