It doesnt make sense that I am not able to get my records from a psychologist. I have pleaded and begged her to let me see how far I have come in the theraputic process, but no matter how hard I try, dr. Shelov will not let me see my progress. I plan to write a book on the effects of PTSD and college girls.I have signed a release to myself. She agreed it would not be detrimental but still she wont budge. Where do I go from here, because it is interfering with any further progress.....am I being too unreasonable?

I say it depends on how long you've been in therapy.

Therapy is a very iffy situation. It all depends on the patient and their relationship with the doctor. Knowing an intimate analysis of yourself might not be a good idea. I admit, having been in therapy myself, and being apsychology student, it never entered my head to look at my therpaist's notes; I thought I would see things I didn't need to see.

A book about the healing process or a psychological study are two different things. Neither should include the author's private information, although a general overview of the author's therapy process could be useful. Case studies of different idividuals are usually better to use, don't you think?

Hi I've been in therapy for four years now and it is coming to an end early next year. Some time ago I asked my therapist if I could read through my notes and she said I could if I wanted too - but over the weeks I decided that I couldn't read them as I felt by reading my notes would cause more distress. When I was seven years old I had to see a psychiatrist and years later I asked my g.p. for my notes. I found that to be very helpful as it proved to me that I had seen professionals and that it wasn't a dream. I suggest to you Izzy that you talk about your fears with your psychologist and maybe you can both come to an agreement which would be the best for you. Good luck and please let me know how you get on.
