> Paternalism and ethics are not mutually exclusive concepts.

This is important and not always appreciated. Paternalism has a bad name, but there's a place for it.

> many folks understand the need for experts, but want to be privy to all the juicy details that the therapist may write down...

Sorry if I'm repeating myself, but IMO therapists should think twice before writing down anything "juicy". This being one reason.

Also, feelings about the therapist or the therapy often underlie the wish to see the record, and those should of course be discussed and not just given in to.

> it's like wanting to see all the fluids and fat from your liposuction

Toby, thanks *so* much for such a vivid image. :-)
