Let me tell you about a little girl my wife is treating.

Last edited Thu Apr 5, 2012, 04:50 PM - Edit history (1)

I've mentioned before that my wife is a psychologist. She mainly specializes in children, but does see some adults. One of the cases she currently is working on is a little girl (4-6 years old) who was repeatedly sexually abused by her father. So many things wrong with this poor little girl. Inappropriate boundaries and touching, etc. She'll point to a man's groin and say "(blank) it". She'll likely need years and years of counseling due to the severity of the case. She also has a little brother (3-5 years old) who they've surmised witnessed some of the abuse and will model the behavior. He'll pull down girls pants and try to molest them, etc.

My wife has made mention that this case mirrors some of the adult women she has seen who have engaged in stripping, escort, etc. So next time you think those girls are expressing their freedom, being independent, or whatever other euphemism you want to use just remember where she likely came from.

I'm just glad my wife is there to help girls and boys like this.

3. HIPAA suggests you shouldn't even know this.

 

Even without identification, patients aren't supposed to be discussed publicly or even with family. Just saying, I take the medical privacy of patients very seriously.

Secondly behaviors are likely after such occurrences, however you are trying for an inverse relationship that simply isn't true to the 100% you're attempting to make it.

YES, those that have been sexually abused are likely to show certain social/sexual behaviors at a rate close to 100%.

NO, not all those with said social/sexual behaviors acquired them thru sexual abuse/assault, some women just love sex. I mean really if women in general loved sex as much as men and would pay for it, all men would be prostitutes just so they could have sex every time they think about it, what every 7 seconds or something, so why assume no women have a libido to rival a man's? Some women are just horny, some like the control it gives them over men, some like the money and clout (thinking higher end here), some just got hooked in because of drug abuse that may have had nothing to do with previous sexual abuse.

In a nutshell, a woman choosing to participate in lots of sex and choosing to get paid for it does NOT mean something is wrong with her.

7. Yeah, I know. Technically, she shouldn't even discuss this with me.

 

But she needs a release and I figure we are far enough removed at this point to be sufficiently anonymous.

Where do you think the classic cliche of "daddy issues" come from?

11. No, not technically, completely. HIPAA!

 

And the reason is because then family who knows better, like you, then spread it all over the web.

Edited to add: If your wife and you are not up to the PRIVACY requirements of her job, perhaps she shouldn't be at such a job, or should post it clearly that she doesn't heed HIPAA.

HIPAA is for a reason, regardless of lawsuits, which sounds like quite the red response to me only caring about whether it'll cost you instead of the potential harm and distress you and your wife are putting that 4 yo and all her patients should anyone chose to track you backward from this site.

"I await the lawsuit"...... f', with dems like you, ..... no wonder everything is heading so "free market" even those on "our" side measure everything in their own personal monetary cost with no ethical or regulatory considerations at all.

Also not the same when people post about friends or family, but your wife is under HIPAA obligation and is failing her ethical responsibilities and you're posting it on the internet.

Instead of continuing to try to justify your mistake, perhaps you should recognize it.

He did not post individually identified health information, nor did he post information that could reasonably identify the patient. Before you berate someone for not following HIPAA, understand what it means.

No names, birthdates or otherwise identifiable information was given.

73. These are the specific things HIPAA considers patient identifiers:

Identifiers
This lists the identifiers specifically appearing in the HIPAA privacy regulations. The presence of any one of these identifiers renders health information individually identifiable. If none of these is a part of the information, it is not possible to identify the individual and no HIPAA violation occurs if the information is used.
HIPAA De-identification requires removal of all such identifiers as specifically defined in the regulations. It is not equivalent to the more general concept associated with the term 'anonymous.' (my emphasis)
The following identifiers of the individual or of relatives, employers, or household members of the individual the asterisk * indicates permitted in a limited data set §164.514(e)(2)):
(A) Names (unless specifically released by written permission)
(B)* All geographic subdivisions smaller than a State, including street address, city, county, precinct, zip code, and their equivalent geocodes, except for the initial three digits of a zip code if, according to the current publicly available data from the Bureau of the Census:
(1) The geographic unit formed by combining all zip codes with the same three initial digits contains more than 20,000 people; and
(2) The initial three digits of a zip code for all such geographic units containing 20,000 or fewer people is changed to 000.

(C)* All elements of dates (except year) for dates directly related to an individual, including birth date, admission date, discharge date, date of death; and all ages over 89 and all elements of dates (including year) indicative of such age, except that such ages and elements may be aggregated into a single category of age 90 or older;
(D) Telephone numbers
(E) Fax numbers
(F) Electronic mail addresses
(G) Social security numbers
(H) Medical record numbers
(I) Health plan beneficiary numbers
(J) Account numbers
(K) Certificate/license numbers
(L) Vehicle identifiers and serial numbers, including license plate numbers
(M) Device identifiers and serial numbers
(N) Web Universal Resource Locators (URLs)
(O) Internet Protocol (IP) address numbers
(P) Biometric identifiers, including finger and voice prints
(Q) Full face photographic images and any comparable images (unless written permission obtained)
(R)* Any other unique identifying number, characteristic, or code, except as permitted by paragraph (c) of this section; If the algorithm for creating a "code" is disclosed to the recipient of the information, then the code is considered a unique identifier. The code is also considered a unique identifier if it is generated from any of the identifiers, or pieces of the identifiers, listed above.

199. You don't know that.

For all you know, the only one that might be applicable is the zip code if, if, the wife told the husband what town the kids are from.

But we don't know that even that happened. For all you know, the wife could be in full compliance with HIPAA disclosure. You're right to be concerned for the patient, but you need actual evidence a HIPAA violation has occured before you can be so categorical in your ire.

Privacy laws are essential, especially in cases like this, and are the law of the land.

Your wife is doing important and admirable work. If you feel she is being attacked, it's because you chose to post this story of someone's personal life.

But I can direct you to youtube wars where people's docs were dropped. And the people who dropped them were not, IMHO, the brightest nodes on the web. They were just malicious enough and paranoid enough that the knew somebody who knew how. Or perhaps learned how long before simply because they were malicious and paranoid long-term.

If you want to know, doc-drops are a rather common thing for atheists on youtube.

181. No. I said "anyone who's curious enough."

I qualified that deliberately. So it's not just "anybody," as you said. It might take four hours, or it might take 2000. It depends on how brightly somebody's curiosity burns or how pissed off they are, their level of expertise to start, who they know to start with, if they make good guesses, and if they want to use other resources beside the web doing it. (They will if they're truly curious.) And of course, the amount of time is affected by whether they want to risk prison doing it.

Measures taken to protect privacy also matter, but your OP did not indicate someone who had that concern-- at least not about other people's.

That is one of the reasons people do not get the mental health help they need. They fear those that they entrust with their problems will not keep it confidential. Your op illustrates that point.

I spent years with my son in and out of Children's LA so I understand that some not all do this.
It is one thing to discuss this with you at home (still against HIPAA rules) it is quite different to post the story on line.
I discuss my son's illness but did not do so until I had asked his permission first. Does your wife know you posted this?
There are enough details in your story that if the parents or a family member saw your post they would recognize their child.

200. I was responding to knowing that some medical personnel....

discuss their patients with their family and friends. He thought this was such a snark to-wards me, I'm just too naive to understand that this is done everyday. Sorry I have a problem with my doctor discussing me or a family member with his friends and family. Don't care if they use identifiers or not. It is an invasion of privacy, it is that simple.


I spent over ten years with my son in and out of Children's LA (1991-2001) and met many families there. We knew that some medical personnel discussed our children and their cases with no-medical personnel (their friends and family). I can tell you that none of the parents I knew (including myself) liked it when it happened. Sometimes it does get back to the patients or families involved. That is why I have a problem with him openly stating (and posting on the net) his wife discusses her patients with him. If someone wanted to, they could probably figure out who the op and his wife are. I don't expect mine or my family's medical cases to be discussed at my doctor's dinner table. Let alone posted on a political website without my permission

Yes what happened to that little girl was horrendous. That doesn't make it right to post her story on the net, without permission with or without identifiers.

There are plenty of case studies (were permission has been given) he could have used to make his point.

Unless your medical experience and radius of contacts in every day life were a hand full of people, I do not understand HOW you would know that your son's case was being discussed unless he WAS identified as your son (same with families you mentioned).

He didn't post HER story on the internet and you know it. You just read something that struck a nerve. I'm sorry that this made you react this way, but NOTHING that was posted gave away who this little girl was. It simply was an awful story and one more person who had to work with an awful situation, which needs understanding, not scorn.

205. We are talking in circles.

What struck a nerve was him posting on the net that his wife discussed her patients with him, sorry if you don't feel that is wrong. A persons wants to think that a doctor or anyone else in the medical field would keep their patients confidence. I know some don't but that doesn't make it right.

You can call BS all you want but he did make the above statement regarding his wife's patients. He went on to give details on one case such as:
age within a couple of years
sex of the child
describe one of the acts the adult did to the child (anyone can see edits)
siblings sex, age and how they are acting out regarding the abuse.

All you and others saw was the awful story about child abuse. Something we all care about and want more done to stop it.

What I saw was a person telling the world his wife talks to him about her patients. In my mind he broke two confidences, one to his wife and the other to her patients. When I pointed this out, he belittled me and basically made fun of how I feel. Some of us who have spent a life time with doctors and in and around hospitals due to long term illnesses, would like to think our very personal medical cases are private. It should be our choice on rather or not to tell our story. We know that there are medical professionals who do not respect this, still doesn't make it right.

110. Oh, bullshit...

You are misunderstanding HIPAA with this story. Plus, you are so unrealistic in what people in health care have to deal with, you can't possibly understand this situation.

In fact, it's quite acceptable talking about anything that does NOT have a direct identifier. For example, "Dear, I feel so heart-broken with one of my cases... "

This sharing of information breaks nothing under HIPAA. The minute you start spilling public knowledge that can be identified to the privacy of an individual's medical records... THEN you are violating HIPAA.

Anything that describes a clinical situation can be published in a journal so that its readers can gain the same knowledge. And, if there is a way to discuss it scientifically, it's called peer review.

The child is most likely in good hands, and I appreciate the discussion of reality, because BELIEVE YOU ME... there are many, many people who interface with this stuff who need to talk about it.

201. My company specializes in testing IT systems against HIPAA compliance

and he did NOT violate HIPAA. He didn't tell where the girl lives, what her name is or any other identifiable information about the girl other than a vague age range - there are literally thousands of girls between the ages of 4 and 6 - I have one. He also didn't ID the girl by race, hair color, eye color or anything else - other than she is a little girl.

If you couldn't do that under HIPAA, there would be no releasable information regarding health studies.

FWIW, I also think you're wrong about why adult women participate in acts that many consider sexually unreasonable. Women are programmed from an early age that they MUST do certain things to gain the attention of men - and this programming in not relegated to only violent sexual abuse. You can see it on television everyday.

209. I don't know what is a violation or what isn't

when it comes to the "gray" area but OP had more information before the edit(which wouldn't matter I imagine since it is accessible to anyone), one age listed for girl, mentioned that she has a brother and the brother's age & a detail of a behavior. I'm not saying that there is a violation, just more information that just sex and an age range. Also I was wondering even though he didn't post where she lives, what if he(or anyone w/ a similar post) made mention of where they lived or some hints (like mentioning who your congressman is) would that be a violation? I know where you live isn't always where your spouse works and sometimes a spouse could live & work on another continent.

Anyways regardless would the OP be in violation anyways? I always thought of it to apply to medical staff, what if someone told me about a family member and I told someone else? Would I be in violation? Whenever I'm in the hospital I actually won't allow them to say anything at all to any family member because there is always the possibility they could tell someone else I don't want them to tell for whatever reason. I wouldn't be mad at the family member because I'm under the impression they are not bound by strict privacy guidelines that people in that area because they receive training and require patients to sign waivers or give some kind of permission when friends or families likely wouldn't be familiar at all with those type of things.

If anyone, I imagine the wife would be in violation here, depending on what she said, which I imagine has more details.

182. I'm glad you brought that up.

If you control for the monthly cycle and the lower rate of reaching orgasm, women desire sex as much men.

However, both sexes also vary about equally in the libido spectrum. I'm convinced this debate isn't between women and men. Many men want to suppress the sex industry as well. This is between people with low libidos and uncommon orgasm pitted against those with high libidos. The two live in completely different worlds, see two completely different things in porn, and have different meanings for the same terms.

Let's say the contention that sex workers are actually acting out a psychological symptoms that causes them to want to strip, have meaningless sex, get kinky, and/or demean themselves and, in effect, get abused. If then you effectively suppress the sex industry, you can then expect them to be doing all those things anyway-- for free. Why? You haven't "cured" them. The illness would still be there.

You can't correlate behavior in a child to behavior in an adult. Not sexually, not in any way. That's been debunked in other things, and it would hold even truer in sex.

4. During the prenatal period, parents should be strongly encouraged

to attend a couple of sessions on parenting. Nothing obtrusive, just the standard education.

They should learn what is violence. A lot of them do not realize it when they are seriously harming their child. A little discussion about readiness for school, about protecting a child from sexual predators -- especially from sexual predators who are friends of members of the family.

Churches, schools, civic clubs -- would all be good places to offer this. .

We think we know it all and don't need training. But you would be very surprised to learn just whose children suffer from abuse of various kinds.

The dependency courts where they decide to place abused or neglected children in foster homes are full of poor kids from poor or middle-class families. But children everywhere in all kinds of families may be unlucky enough to suffer from abuse and/or neglect.

And when a stranger abuses a child, the parents may not even know or if they find out, may not know what to do or may be afraid to contacts someone.

This is a bigger problem in our country than is generally acknowledged.

Thanks for posting this.

189. When I lived in a small town in a European country and had single-payer,

the town's pediatrician called all the pregnant moms due over a certain period of several months to a meeting and gave us tips. She warned, for example, that our babies would be born in September so it might be smart to hold them back a year of school so that they would not be the youngest in their class. I did that, and my child had a huge advantage in her early education. Later, she skipped a class and joined the older children in her general age range.

That was not an issue of child abuse, but putting a child in school before the child is mature enough to handle the stress and demands can place the child's whole life, not just his academic career, in jeopardy.

Little bits of information and advice like that -- so simple -- can make a big difference.

In general, I think that American parents push their children pretty hard.

Jenna Jameson was asked by Howard Stern about abuse, and she lied, not wanting to seem like a victim.

I hate that we've stigmatized the very idea of having been hurt.

Thank heavens for the counseling your wife can give them.

We can read about sexual abuse as I follow the Sandusky case... But to think of little children, so very young and so damaged by their father...

And for your wife's continuing help for the little girl and/ or her brother.

And I would also guess that the percentage of U.S. females who have been harassed verbally and/or groped by strangers is probably 99 percent.

67. Here's a fantastic idea:

How about you just post her name? That way,when she becomes an adult, everyone will know that she's an abuse victim and not to be looked at, touched or slept with! Wouldn't that be a big help! Save everyone some time and effort.

In fact, you could get together with other spouses of therapists with the same disdain for patient privacy and start a website. With a database. It will help ensure that the victims stay properly victims for the rest of their life. Make sure they understand that they gave up all rights to their sexuality when they were abused, and are now ruined goods.

Do I need the sarcasm smiley?

Of course it would never occur to you that being in situations where they can control their sexual excounters, like stripping, might BE an expression of freedom and independence for them. Because that would not be appropriate ruined goods behavior, would it?

85. Seven Tips to Avoid HIPAA Violations in Social Media:

"There have been a couple of widely-publicized cases recently of physicians divulging patient information in social media. I’m sure the doctors involved did not intend to violate patient privacy."

"While there are several excellent guidelines and policies on this topic, there isn’t a whole lot of practical advice, so here are my tips to help you avoid privacy violations (I hope this is the beginning of a conversation that will encourage more doctors to participate in social media)."

"1. Don’t talk about patients, even in general terms. It’s so difficult to anonymize patients, it’s not worth your time to attempt it."

<snip>

"But this could also identify your patient: “We had a fifty-year-old male in the ER last night with alcohol-induced liver disease.” (Somebody’s going to say “Really? In Boston? Hey—where was Dave last night? He’s fifty. Oh—I feel sorry for the kids.”)"

"And so could this: “Had a patient in the ER last night with alcohol-induced liver disease.” It takes only a couple of clues for the sleuths and wags to piece something together. As little as time frame OR geography, coupled with condition, could be enough."

"2. Do talk about conditions, treatments, research. You can write about conditions, treatment options, research, or other topics in general terms."

<snip>

"3. Don’t be anonymous. This has always been a warning sign in social media—even before Facebook and Twitter when we were using listserves and bulletin boards. Anonymity breds bad behavior. It encourages you to say things you shouldn’t. If you’re not familiar with the case of Dr. Flea, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to Google it."

"4. If you wouldn’t say it in the elevator, don’t put it online. This is a famous test, probably repeated by compliance departments and trainers at hospitals all over the US. If you wouldn’t say it in the elevator, don’t put it online. You can try speaking your post out loud before hitting the enter key. Take particular care when replying to people in real-time venues like Twitter. You don’t have to respond right away and if you have any doubt at all, ask a friend or colleague for their reaction before you post."

"5. Check the tone of your social media presence. Watch the tone of your posts/tweets: if you’re using social media to vent about work, you should pause and evaluate–too much complaining could be an early warning sign of trouble. Unfortunately, humor can be another warning sign. Any time you write something you think is funny, ask a friend to have a look before you post."

"6. Don’t mix your personal and professional lives. Use separate accounts for your personal and professional lives. Don’t friend patients on Facebook, check your privacy settings monthly (they change from time to time) and assume that anything you put online could become public. If you want to have a professional presence on Facebook, create a page apart from your personal account."

That's why such a thing as "7 Tips to Avoid HIPAA Violations in Social Media" exists. It helps to provide guidance for health care professionals so they can avoid paying fines or having their licenses suspended.

113. Victims of abuse will not feel comfortable coming forward if they cannot trust their therapists.

If any victim feels that their counselors' will tell the victims' personal histories (in detail) to family, friends, or the worldwide web, they will not talk.

Treatment for those who are abused must incorporate safeguarding their privacy along with the rest of their therapies.

Pointing that out is part of protecting them, so it is indeed a very important part of the discussion.

As an advocate, I'm sure you realize that.

No matter how many salacious details you read, no matter what damage the child shows, everybody's going to agree that children shouldn't be raped. They'll agree children should be protected from it. They'll agree people who do it should be imprisoned and punished. They'll agree that children who had this happen should get treatment. Men will say this, women will say this, and the only ones who don't mean it are the molesters.

So, what does this add to the conversation? More than that, what do you want to say that adds to it?

I mean maybe it got off topic partially because there's not very much to say on the topic. If there is, by all means say it.

107. No one's arguing with the fact that there are

abused women in the sex industry. What we ARE arguing with- vehemently- is that childhood abuse makes them worthless, ruined adults who must do as you tell them for the rest of their lives to pay for it.

There are abused women getting married and having children- prior abuse raises the probability of being in an abusive relationship, of being an abusive parent. I assume you're also going to tell them when they can have sex, when they can get married, when they can get pregnant, how to raise their child? To every woman who was abused as a child? Because if not, your argument is both selective and invalid.

Also, your blabbing about a violation of doctor-patient rules on the Internet- still not cool in any way, shape or form.

171. So, will you bar adults from working there?

Last edited Fri Apr 6, 2012, 01:34 PM - Edit history (1)

And if you're going to disallow them from making choices about where they work; are you going to make all their sexual decisions for them? If you think their joining the sex industry is bad, there are apparently other disagreeable sex acts they do out of your sight. Probably some more scandalous than the sex industry.

And then why not manage their money, since it's a commercial decision, too? And make every other decision for them because you disagree with their choices, and they were molested, so as adults, not competent. You might as well do that, since sex and reproduction are about the most personal decision they have, and you're making it for them. Do you see how that's oppressive? Do you see how that's insulting.

They're adults. Are you going to make molested people children all their lives because they make decisions that are disagreeable to you? How moral is that?

There is an alternative. Cure them. If it's a symptom, then with psychologists now treating molested children in such numbers, higher than it has been in the past, the number of adults going into the sex industry should be dropping. I don't think it's going to. Even if psychology were a reliable science, I don't think it would.

183. What I wrote

does not correspond to your reply. You asked a question and then replied as if I had answered a certain way. What I wrote was about what Hedges discovered in his work. Don't know the book it was in but he discussed it on C-Span Booknotes. He talked about women who start as dancers and those who stay in the business as they age, they are passed around, traded and sold to other pimps in ever more less desirable circumstances - moving about the country. Often their childhoods included sexual abuse.
He exposed a business that most are not aware of. I find it very sad.

185. Some questions are rhetorical.

Last edited Sun Apr 8, 2012, 02:48 AM - Edit history (1)

And I mixed your post with answering the OP, because, though you don't say so explicitly, you seem to agree with him.

The reason why some on the left disagree is that a lot of what's being written about the sex industry, including Hedges work, is totally made up. This is a public hysteria, a witch hunt getting off the ground, in the same vein as the Satanic Ritual Cult of the '80s and '90s, and in the end, it's going to be just as destructive to innocent people.

Example: the figure of 100-150 thousand children being trafficked in this country is found everywhere. Do you know how many child prostitutes law enforcement actually finds, on average, per year? For the last 10 years? 80. This is after Congress has put $800 million dollars into fighting child trafficking. Bureaus and task forces set up to fight trafficking domestically are not busy. Not from laziness, they honestly can't find any.

The only scientifically valid, rigorous study ever done on child prostitutes agree with this. It also reveals a number of surprises about it. For one, the average age a juvenile starts prostitution if 15. Another: ninety percent have no pimps. That's right. No pimps. They work independently, and their friends got them into it, 45 percent of the time. Most had contacted social aid organizations in the last year. The total census of underage prostitutes in New York City came to about 3,900. That's in all of New York. The largest metro area in the US.

There's enough scientific evidence that shows people lie about the sex they have. Nobody has thought to ask the question of how much they lie about other people's sex, but a scientific studies on this topic would be very valuable.

That's just one example of figures pulled out of people's asses that are passed on as though they are true. If you think I'm being biased: when figures are being exaggerated by factors of a thousand and the fantastical numbers aren't being questioned, something is going on besides just pure error. How about strong perception bias?

Recently, I heard the UN cite the number of trafficked children worldwide to be 2.4 million, over 80 percent into prostitution. Nowhere in the articles does it say how they reached that figure. What census does it depend on?

How do you Hedges isn't another, better known, Mike Daisey? And if anyone from the sex industry is found and says his story isn't true, would you give him or her any credibility? No, because they're either "too damaged from being molested" as children or too dirty to be believed. That would be a typical response of the general public, and of the "left," men or women, despite Hedges puzzlement, that's completely true.

What this means is any journalist can lie their heads off about the sex industry and never face a fact check. Never. And the more sensational the story, the more it sells. It's like shooting fish in a barrel.

No, I don't think what Hedges describes is typical of the sex industry. Either he was lucky, that is, found something unrepresentative; or he deliberately found something atypical and said otherwise; or he lied from beginning to end.

Now there are terrible cases of abuse, and those are always heart wrenching. But somehow the emotional pain of it is being translated into inflated numbers. And people who question them are treated with suspicion or moral outrage, as you probably do now.

135. I've been a foster parent for 20 years....

I've had dozens of children arrive at my home horribly abused and/or neglected. Sexual abuse is so common that I naturally assume that children are victims when they come through the door. The signs start in the first few days: sleeping with their clothes on, hoarding food, peeing the bed, sexual acting out, etc
It makes me so angry I could scream!

And while I know that confidentiality is important I want to yell from the rooftops what is being done to sweet, innocent lives. I often feel the confidentiality agreement I signed is just a license for these pedophiles to continue abusing in secret!

138. Could I say, I don't believe you at all.


First, if you really care that adult women who make some choices clearly aren't competent to make them, (and by implication, the given men are responsible even if, as far as you know, they probably had childhood traumas just as bad) there are better ways to breech this topic than to go into an example so particular, that it breaks both your confidence with your spouse and your spouse's confidence with her patients.

Second, if you're unethical enough to brazenly do the first and not notice anything wrong, there's reason to suspect you're also unethical enough to make whole thing up to begin with, especially for "a good cause."

Third, don't say this is a personal attack or it's irrelevant, because if your information is suspect or from unverifiable sources for whom you breech solemn confidence, there's no sense discussing any of it as though its true.

You would have been better off talking about it hypothetically than claiming some arrogated authority from improperly divulged information. But best, you might have researched and provided documentation.

This is the way social hysterias are started. Just asked some of the people who served time from the '80s and '90s Satanic Ritual Abuse hysteria. A salacious, sensational topic, and unwarranted attacks made under excuse of trying to help innocent victims. What can possibly go wrong with such good intentions?

Like the intentions aren't good, and the existence of the victims being rescued are either exaggerated a thousand-fold or a fantasy.

Even if it theoretically is, do you really believe somebody can't take what he's posted here historically, what he's posted on the rest of the web, piece the information together and come up with who he is, and then who his wife is?

That's beside the point. Is it really ethical to gossip about a child recovering from molestation being treated by your spouse? Even if you accompany it with a sentiment that something good be done?

Really, take away the Internet here and just try imagine listening to his words being spoken in public. You would call it gossip. And I don't think it makes either him or his wife look good.

You gave the approximate ages of two kids and your wife's profession and what is going on between her and her two young clients. That in no way can be traced, and YES I know the admins can find out a persons information, but why would they?

Good luck and I hope your wife has tremendous success with her young wards.

Like when people accuse you of not defending women's rights. I saw that thread (yesterday?) and was wondering how anyone can be that desperate. Evidently some people have to 'win' whatever strange debate (seems like it is all in their head) they are having with someone else no matter how stupid it looks.

I agree, anything BUT talking about the issues of porn and how it destroys the life of individuals. It is a topic people on the Internet don't want discussed imo.

and none of them were a HIPAA violation. It just so happens, this specific one is and could have easily been posted without the offending information.

This isn't about you or me or porn or strippers or whatever, it's about a child who has a right to share things with her psychologist without the fear that that person will tell other people about it, not to mention to become a pawn on an internet message board for whatever agenda someone who isn't qualified to diagnose her situation is using her for.

This calls into question for me how much concern this person really has for the people he claims to want to help. I would not see violating a wife's confidence- and repeatedly insisting it's somehow OK- as respectful to women. I would certainly not see spreading a child's abuse story all over the Internet as respectful toward abuse victims. I have never seen the attempt to paint childhood abuse victims as worthless, defective adults as respectful toward either.

The same person advocated having a woman involuntarily committed because he assumed she was a meth addict. I gave the benefit of the doubt at the time but now I'm beginning to wonder about this person's motivations.

Their spouses for support and other counselors for different counseling ideas. The idea that we're going to hav a system where discussing general patients is like keeping state secrets is just not realistic nor should it be something that is necessary.
