I will add that this is a case involving my brother and his children. I was asked to participate in thereapy with my nephew as a support and the therapist sent out a text message that was to the mother of the child stating that "i hope that he gets his humble pie" toward my brother stating that she hopes that my brother learns a less or something along those lines.

This is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard.
I suggest if your brother has signed a wavier that the information can be released it is not a violation. If not, then yes the therapist should not release any information regarding the session.
