Is this a full-out State College/"Happy" Valley/Penn State entrenched abusive "epidemic" going on?

From the article: Accusations that a State College psychologist had inappropriate sexual relationships with two patients could cost the local doctor his license and subject him to more than $1 million in civil penalties. The state Board of Psychology has filed a formal disciplinary action against Richard Scott Lenhart, accusing him of 111 counts of professional misconduct relating to two long-time patients...According to the charges, Lenhart engaged in a pattern of sexual grooming and repeated sexual misconduct with the two patients over years of treatment. Both patients were survivors of prior sexual trauma and were seeking treatment, in part, because of that past abuse, according to the order. The Department of State said Lenhart exploited the patients, “re-traumatizing them in his role as psychologist.”

When I was in clinical practice we avoided these ethical problems by making sure we only had sexual contact with other therapists patients.

Kinda like car-pooling.

Apparently Pennsylvania is lenient about this. In some states he would be facing prison. And deserve it.

Please
“the local doctor his license” what a complete joke. These sorcerers are not “doctors”, they may have a PHd in voodoo but that is all.

“her said..she said”....these women were apparently suffering some psychological problems so their absurd claims against me are to be viewed through proper “diagnostic” lenses.....How’s that??

The kind of professional who will be sending personal mental health data to state offices, then to be sent to federal offices to deny firearms purchases.
