Licensing and governmental agencies, as well as attorneys, consult with the Center on matters of professional conduct involving psychologists, teachers, physicians, nurses or massage therapists who are accused of crossing sexual boundaries with their patients. The accused are seen for an extended comprehensive evaluation. Reports are prepared to respond to the Licensing Boards' or attorneys' questions and to offer recommendations regarding the ability of the professional to safely practice, limitations on practice and specific suggestions regarding the necessity of mental health intervention. When appropriate, these professionals may receive treatment at the Center.
