Though we initially declined to mention it, a subject came up on our Comments page that we must now address. See

Dr. Richard Boylan, Past President of the Valley Psychological Association and formerly Mental Health Director of Calaveras County, California, has been found guilty of gross negligence and misconduct with patients. As a consequence, and based on a two-year investigation of inappropriate behavior, the State has revoked both his license to practice and his clinical social worker license. His practice, consisting of marriage, family, and child counseling, is now shut down.
