Abstract

State legislators and mental health professionals in Minnesota have been active in developing strategies to improve reporting, management, and rehabilitation of sexually exploitive therapists. In 1985 and 1986, the legislature criminalized sexual contact by a therapist with a current or emotionally dependent former patient, established sexual exploitation by a therapist as a statutory cause of action, and required that all licensed health professionals report to the Board of Medical Examiners any physician who engages in sexual or sexually suggestive contact with a patient. The Walk-In Counseling Center, a nonprofit agency in Minneapolis, has taken an active role in evaluating exploitive therapists for licensing boards and employers to determine their rehabilitation potential. Mental health professionals and lawmakers have also collaborated in the development of strategies for preventing sexual exploitation and abuse by therapists.
