I’ve heard of children being taken away from parents due to what a client has said to a therapist. Is this true?

Everyone has a duty to report child abuse as outlined by the Children and Family Services Act of Nova Scotia.  This act was recently changed in early 2017, so if you have questions, please check this link:  Children and Family Services Act of Nova Scotia

Therapists follow this duty to report and must report any suspected or known child abuse to authorities. This reporting could, result in a child, or children, being removed from their family home temporarily, or in some cases, permanently.
