SCPA Workshop:How to Respond to a Subpoena

Therapists will be taught to understand and develop a plan for responding to subpoenas.

Subpoenas for records and testimony regarding psychotherapeutic treatment are frequently received by therapists because of the importance of such treatment in many types of legal cases. Therapists cannot ignore subpoenas but the manner of responding varies greatly depending on the source and validity of the subpoena, and type of treatment and legal case. Therapists must be especially careful to stay within the scope of their roles and competence as fact-witnesses even when litigants and others involved in the case may pressure them otherwise.
