I just found this website. Seems interesting. Some insightful comments made by people who view the website. Some are very similar to our traumas.

I just found this website. You can search for public lawsuits made against psychiatrists in some countries. Not sure how much info is available but it is disturbing to see so many...

I really like this website and the survivor has written a book, which you can buy as an ebook for less than $2. There is also much free content, including a blog with supportive commentary.

Not research and not necessarily new, but I’ve found a few first hand accounts of therapist exploitation:
“You Must Be Dreaming”

“Fish In A Barrel”

I’ll add more when i find them.

TELL’s reading list includes a 800-page book by Gary Schoener which sounds hard to get, but maybe they can help. Author Susan Penfold is both a practitioner and survivor.

I’ve been in contact with Gary Schoener. He’s appeared on a panel on Oprah talking about the subject, as well. Not sure if he’s retired or not but he founded or co-founded the “Walk-In Counseling Center” in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Home - Walk-In

My experience with Dr. Schoener: he accepted a ‘cold call’ from me all those years ago and was the person to refer me to a great therapist knowledgeable about therapist exploitation, PrevT.
I feel they likely saved my life, at the time.

He’s not only an expert on therapist exploitation, he’s a great guy.

That’s wonderful to learn. We exchanged a few emails years ago, likely via TELL.

Another tough book, Ellen Plasil’s Therapist about a very complex exploitation and brave aftermath. Schoener might have recommended it, come to think about it.

"Folie A Deux: An Experience of One-to-One Therapy" by Rosie Alexander is a tough one to read, at least for me it was. But it was also a page turner.
