DO YOU HAVE TO TESTIFY? IS THERE A PRIVILEGE? HAS IT BEEN WAIVED? AN ANALYSIS OF PRIVILEGE FOR PSYCHOTHERAPISTS

The general rule in psychotherapist-patient relationships is that the content of the therapy sessions are confidential - in other words, a privilege exists that allows the therapist to not have to submit themselves to the general legal rule that a person should testify to what they know. "Privileges" are given to a variety of professions in order to protect some societal interest. For example, with therapists, the privilege exists so that an individual will feel free to communicate their inner most thoughts, concerns, feelings without the threat of that coming back to harm them in the future.
