Privileged Communication--Rights and Responsibilities of College Counselors Under Wisconsin Law. Volume 4, Number 6. Counseling Center Reports.
Nolting, Earl; Leege, William
Selected legal responsibilities of counselors under the present laws of the State of Wisconsin are reviewed. Specifically, statutes concerning privileged communication and confidentiality, drug abuse and abortion are printed in full or in part, and major questions and basic legal principles relevant to them are examined as they pertain to the counselor or psychologist providing professional services in higher education settings. The paper is concerned with the counselor's delicate job, in which he may be liable 'to' the student for a breach of fiduciary duty, or be liable 'with' the student should he go too far in advising him about unlawful acts.
