Is there an implied consent for a therapist to

Posted by rnny on April 8, 2010, at 17:32:06

Is there an implied consent for a T to bring up any subject or do they need to ask permission?
I was just reading an online book and it said that in doing an assessment the T should always ask the patient "permission" to discuss their sex life. Isn't permission kind of assumed to be given if you are already answering questions? Why would this be singled out compared to other stuff. I am not trying to be crude or bring up subject matter that is of poor taste or just brought up to encourage others to think of anything lewd that might make them or others feel out of place. If a T said to me " and now I would like to ask your permission to discuss your sex life" I wouldn't find it necessary. Polite, but not necessary. I might even giggle! I think there is an implied consent for a T to bring up anything as long as it is done in good faith. Am I wrong?
