Legal/Consultation

Soul Survivor is often asked to testify, provide records, and write affidavits for both criminal and civil court proceeding on behalf of SSCS clients.

Successful therapy must include protection and must include a positive relationship between therapist and client. Therapist involvement in court matters for clients can adversely affect both. After careful consideration of a client’s best interest, court involvement may be provided as an EXCEPTION and is not an obligation of mental health services provided by Soul Survivor unless otherwise court-ordered.

All other participation in legal matters is voluntary even if the client requests or agrees to release their confidential information. An attorney does not have the legal authority to require therapist involvement without a court order.
