Confidentiality and Informed Consent
Information discussed in counseling is confidential and can only be shared with explicit, written permission from the client. However, in certain extreme instances, confidentiality becomes secondary to a concern for life. In the rare event that injury to self or to others is an imminent danger, a breach of confidentiality is required to take the appropriate steps to insure the safety of the individual and the community.
