Due to the HIPAA regulations regarding privacy of personal health information, we are not allowed to release information regarding patient sessions without a release of confidential information signed by the student. In fact, we are unable to
even confirm or deny a student’s participation without permission. However, we are available to provide information about behavior trends and patterns that are typical of the college age population here at UCSB and around the country.
