Psychological malpractice

How psychological malpractice can happen

Psychologists can serve a vital function for someone who is severely depressed, suffering from bipolar disorder or otherwise going through a difficult time. Unfortunately, psychologists may cause harm to a vulnerable person through negligence or misconduct. The consequences can be dire.
