The only violation practitioners are allowed to do is client’s confidentiality under those circumstances mandated by the ethical guidelines or by state law (Bruhn, s.a.:112). Other malpractices that practitioners could be at fault are defamation of character (Anon, 2003:40). Damaging a person’s reputation by making public statements that are both false and malicious is considered defamation of character (Anon, 2003:40).

Psychotherapy should not be eliminated for mental patients; both medication and therapy should be used for helping the patient. The medicine should help control the patient 's problem, but not their attitude, however psychotherapy helps the problem being dealt with and their attitude. Psychotherapy also helps the patients express themselves; meanwhile the medicine prescribed to these patients will make them quiet, sleepy and sometimes even give them a depression. Long since World War 1 much research has been done into whether mental patients should have medicine or psychotherapy. Most researchers think medicine can take over the job of therapy.
