and...

while this is probably something of a seperate issue...

i'm wondering about the 'informed consent' process regarding posting to this site...

i'm thinking that some things...
well...
some things it is considered unethical to ask people to do - whether they give informed consent or not.

it is unethical for a therapist to sleep with a client - and no informed consent from the client makes that an appropriate request.

yeah, extreme example...

but i'm thinking about informed consent to having your posts archived indefinately... at the same time as fostering a 'supportive' environment which of course encourages people to spill...

is it ethical to do that with full knowledge of the possible harm that could result?

yeah, the informed consent is supposed to establish that the poster understands the possible harm...

but understanding...

and fully comprehending can be two very different things.


documented in the archives indefinately...

for all the world to see...

how would you feel if your therapy transcripts were publicly accessible?

of course...

this isn't an issue for most.

just a few
just a few

and the possible harm to a few

well...

nothing compared to the good of the group

after all...

using publicly viewable info isn't research.

hmm.

and the boards get bigger...

but every now and then there seems to be a voice...
