A Handbook regarding Confidentiality as a Right of Pupils in Counselor-Pupil Exchanges.
Sheldon, Lee; And Others
This handbook was designed to help school counselors and other personnel, parents, and students to understand the rights and responsibilities of pupils and counselors in the area of shared information. It explains the requirements of several recent California laws dealing with confidentiality in counseling. Situations where the new laws would apply are outlined, and several possible exceptions are noted. The importance of informing parents, students, and staff members is stressed, and a pupil/student confidentiality quiz with answers is included. Compliance with the new laws is illustrated through several hypothetical case studies. The handbook provides a definition section for relevant terms and discusses ethical issues in confidentiality.
