Why is this guy on trial? Psychologist makes patient wear dog collar.

Psychologist makes patient wear dog collar

SYDNEY, Jan 30 (Reuters Life!) - An Australian psychologist charged with indecently assaulting a patient told a court on Tuesday that forcing his female patient to wear a dog collar and call him master was within a psychologist's ethical guidelines.
Psychologist Bruce Beaton, 64, pleaded not guilty in the Western Australia District Court to four charges of indecently assaulting a 22-year-old woman in 2005, local media reported.
Beaton was arrested when police, who had been secretly video recording the session with the woman, heard whipping sounds, reported Australian Associated Press from the court.
Beaton told the court he resorted to master-servant treatment with his bulimic patient because other methods had failed. He said he thought forcing the woman to wear a dog collar and call him master would build a more trusting relationship
He said such treatment was allowed by the Australian Psychological Society. "It is right within the ethical guidelines," Beaton told the court.
"I am not saying it would be all right if I hit her. I did not hit her," he said. The trial continues.
