Please see the draft guidelines published by the Association of Family and Conciliation CourtsÂ (AFCC) task force on Court-involved therapy. Dr. Sullivan co-chaired this task force that is focused on providing best practices for mental health professionals providing counseling and therapy services to adults, children and families, when the therapy is Court-ordered or becomes Court-involved. Issues such as confidentiality, responding to subpeonas, working with other professionals are addressed. This is the first set of professional practice guidelines ever published dealing with this tricky role.
