Hearing set on rule changes that will affect repressed-memory therapy

The Department of Labor & Industries will hold a public hearing Nov. 26 to consider administrative rule changes that will mainly affect mental-health therapy for crime victims.

The hearing is scheduled from 1 to 5 p.m. Nov. 26 in the auditorium of the Labor & Industries building, 7273 Linderson Way SW, Tumwater.

The rule changes include several new measures:

  • Criminal acts must either be credible or verifiable to be allowed under the crime victims act.

  • Some mental-health treatment techniques will not be allowed on accepted claims.

  • Labor & Industries will be required to consider the effect on the victim when a convicted offender requests debt reduction.

Written comments on the rules will be accepted until Dec. 2, 1996.
