Question Confidentiality and Working with Courts

Psychic Janie wrote, October 4, 2006:

i was reading your post dr reid and thought i might offer a couple topics for discussion.....when working with court-referred clients (adults and juveniles) the issues of confidentiality are stretched because of requirements to report to the court. through the years i have developed my own boundaries around this issue that seem to have worked for all, therapists, court, clients, but i would like to hear how others have dealt with this issue. one thing i do is throughly explain to all involved exactly what might be reported and what might not - hmmm, exactly and might in the same sentence, how does that work? so maybe others would like to offer feedback/opinions?

Lightbulb Re: Confidentiality and Working with Courts

Thanks for reading this thread! The Law, Ethics and Psychotherapy Forum gets a lot of readers, but few new posts. You are invited to contribute statements, comments or questions to keep the forum alive. Pick something you like, or something you don't like, but don't let the threads go stagnant! All I ask is that we avoid personal questions from patients (we can't do clinical work or second-guess therapists here, but we can have professional discussions among clinicians about ethics or forensic scenarios). We also avoid personal attacks.

The possibilities are endless. You can simply reply to a post in an existing thread, or start a new one. Do you have questions or experiences that involve the ethics or legal aspects of training? clinical work? termination? malpractice or malpractice lawsuits? forensic careers? criminal matters related to mental health? boundaries? work with courts or lawyers? work in correctional institutions? work with parolees or probationers? clinician impairment? laws affecting practice?

Choose something you're familiar with or something you want to know more about. If you want suggestions, you're welcome to check out my website at www.psychandlaw.org.

Thanks,
Bill Reid, Forum Administrator

Don't know what you are referring to. Feel free to clarify. If not, I'll delete the post in a few days.
