Description

The right to privacy and confidentiality between mental health practitioners and their clients is now under attack from business and both federal and state governments. What are your constitutional rights? How can you protect yourself from crippling lawsuits? Who possesses the right to confidentiality and privileged communications? And how do you build a supportive relationship with your clients that will reclaim the right to privacy? These important questions and many more are answered in this guidebook created by an expert in both psychology and the law. This is essential reading for psychologists, social workers, mental health counselors, marriage and family therapists, psychiatrists--every professional who is privy to another person's mental condition. Psychological Information provides working guidelines on handling demands for information while minimizing the risk of legal actions.
