Summary:

A communication between a patient and an educational psychologist shall be privileged to the same extent, and subject to the same limitations, as a communication between a patient and a psychotherapist

Summary:

The provision defines the "patient" in the psychotherapist-patient privilege as not only a person seeking treatment, but also as someone permitting examination of his mental or emotional condition for the purpose of scientific research on mental or emotional problems, thereby potentially invoking the privilege to protect research communications. Evidence Code 1012, defining "confidential communications" partly undercuts this, however, as patient must consider, subjectively, that no one else will be apprised of the psychotherapist-patient communication. It will likely be understood that a research project will be discussed outside of the therapeutic chamber.
