Even Clients Have Rights. Privilege, Privacy and Protection.
Weinrach, Stephen G.
Prefaced with citations of the enactment of student rights, this paper outlines the results of a questionnaire dealing with client rights and responsibilities. The right mentioned by the majority of respondents is confidentiality. A Bill of Client Rights and Responsibilities is derived from the survey and presented in three categories: (1) determining if, with whom, and for how long the relationship is to exist; (2) creating a de-mystified and mutual relationship; and (3) developing quality-control measures, involving client evaluation of counseling outcomes. The author suggests that, as counselors and clients establish the rights within the relationship, they naturally become more responsible to each other, and this responsibility carries over into other relationships.
