No, that is not right at all.

I think it's horrid - and it's even worse because it was the church's therapists! It's like they trapped people into giving statements! :(

Wow ... now a diocese in California has published one of the victim's statements and is making it public to church officials along with a video about the case. Unbelievable...

Isn't this kind of thing covered by the doctor/patient privilege? I can't see how any ethical therapist would give out any details of a session with a client. This is disturbing.

They are being forced to turn them over, because the church paid for the sessions, from what I understand. I still don't think that's legal but a lot of religions don't have to follow the laws - if it *was* legal I wouldn't be surprised

as far as I know any therapist has to turn over confidential records to the courts

Maybe in Australia, not here though. Here, I think the only time you can turn someone in is if they were telling you they were about to harm themselves or others ... not rape, they mean kill. I think that's the only time legally they can do it?
