How do you balance privacy and transparency? When they conflict, which should win?

Transparency, Responsibility and Privacy: what do they mean for therapy?

In a world of MPs fiddling their expenses and of obscure financial transactions that have brought down the world economy, how much transparency is needed – and from whom? Is personal transparency and integrity just as important as corporate transparency – or should we expect more from companies? What is the place for privacy within therapy? And can it all go too far? Are there limits to how much people should expect to know about others?

On Thursday 8th October at 8pm,  I will be exploring these questions and considering some of their implications for therapy practitioners – at: The Philadelphia Association, 4 Marty’s Yard, 17 Hampstead High Street, London NW3 1QW. Tel: 020 7794 2652

The politics of free speech

Max Mosley has won his case.  The underlying issue was whether Mosley’s right to personal privacy should be subordinated to the News of the World’s right to free speech.  This raises an important question, whatever you think of his father’s politics or his own behaviour.

Should the rights of an organisation prevail over that of a human being?

In any case, the News of the World would have more of my sympathies if it did not suggest it was on a moral crusade, proclaiming “Our motto is truth. Our practice is the fearless advocacy of the truth.”
