A survey of licensed social workers in Texas using self-administered questionnaires revealed that, during the previous 12 months, 17 percent had worked with at least one victim of sexual exploitation by a psychotherapist. Social workers licensed as advanced clinical practitioners, licensed social workers with master's degrees, and those working in private practice were most likely to have worked with a victim of such sexual exploitation. Most respondents were not familiar with the provisions of new Texas legislation concerning sexual exploitation by psychotherapists, including definitions and reporting requirements. The majority indicated they would be interested in additional training.
