  • The therapist said it to you so you can testify to it. And you can grant the therapist permission to talk about this conversation.

    However, I don't believe that they can talk about what was said during HIS sessions without his permission but I could be wrong. so unless the therapist can say why they said this, it's probably best not to bring it up. BUT, I am not an attorney so I don't know all the laws so I could be wrong and hope for your sake, that I am.

  • I thought what got said in therapy stayed in therapy unless he confessed he was going to commit a crime. Ask your attorney
