I’m no mathematician, but the other day I was reading something about mental health statistics and it lead me to a booklet called “Professional Therapy Never Includes Sex.” Most of the info is cut n’ dry, the dos and don’ts of therapy conduct:
As a reader of “Professional Therapy Never Includes Sex,” you may be a California consumer concerned about the conduct of your therapist. You may be a licensed therapist, or training to become a therapist. In any case, it’s good to know more about the high standards of professional conduct expected – and required — in the therapy relationship
Then something caught my eye on page 22. It gave a percentage Professional Therapists who have had sex with clients. This is where my math skills were called into question. The report, from the horse’s mouth, is that an estimated 10% of all Counselors to Psychologists have offended and many, more than once.
A national study revealed that probably fewer than 10 percent of all therapists have had sexual contact with their patients and that 80 percent of the sexually exploiting therapists have exploited more than one patient. If a therapist is sexually exploiting a patient, they have probably done so before and are likely to do so again. http://www.bbs.ca.gov/pdf/publications/proftherapy.pdf (Page 22)
Then it linked to the Occupational Information included in the Handbook where I found the stats of 2008. I added up the numbers and came up with a total of Counselors / Therapists / Psychologists in 2008 breaking the carnal rule of having sexual contact with people that are trusting them and seeking help at 10% — or — 167,130 professionals doing the nasty with clients. (Psychological Disorder)
Am I wrong in thinking that 10% is way too many of our poor peers suffering extra at the hands of some “unprofessional” professionals?!
|Substance abuse and behavioral disorder counselors||86100|
|Educational, vocational, and school counselors||275800|
|Marriage and family therapists||27300|
|Mental health counselors||113300|
|Counselors, all other||33400|
|Clinical, counseling, and school psychologists||152000|
|Psychologists, all other||15900|
|Total Counselors / Therapists / Psychologists in 2008||1671300|
|Estamated number of therapists have||10.00%|
|had sexual contact with their patients||1671300|
NOTE: Data in this table are rounded and from 2008, actual numbers are, no doubt, higher. I’m using the data to make a point that 1 peer being abused by their therapist is 1 too many. See the discussion of the employment projections table in the Handbook introductory chapter on Occupational Information Included in the Handbook.
