Confidentiality is an essential component of any therapeutic relationship. The law protects the right to privacy between a client and Professional Counselor, Human Service Advocate, Mental Health Clinician and/or Psychotherapist. Information exchanged through online consultation and/or therapy sessions cannot be disclosed to any individual or agency without your written permission and consent. (See: Authorization Disclosure Form)
There are however situations in which confidentiality must be waived in order to ensure the protection, safety and well being of a client and/or third party.
These exceptions include the following:
- If a client offers information regarding an implication of suspected child abuse or dependant adult or elder abuse, it is required by law to report this to the appropriate authorities immediately.
- If a client is threatening serious bodily harm to another person/s and refuses reasonable safety measures, proper authorities must be notified and the intended victim informed.
- If a client intends to harm him or herself, every effort will be made to enlist their cooperation in ensuring their safety. If the client refuses reasonable safety measures, further permissions that are required/provided by law will be taken in order to ensure their well being.
- If confidentiality must be waived for any of the above reasons the client will be informed whenever possible. Issues with the diclosure will be discussed openly with continued therapeutic services, advocacy and support.
