When it comes to therapists....If my dd is under 18 do I have the right to know what she tells him/her? Or is she protected under HIPPA and other privacy things? My dd is only 4 but if she had to go to counseling and such would I be able to find out whats said? Just curious...read another post and was wondering

  • No, that would be a HIPAA violation. Only if there were reports of illegal activity can the doctor discuss it, and only with the police/authorities.
