Ethical & Legal Issues in School Counseling. Chapter 2: Privacy, Confidentiality, and Privileged Communication.
Zingaro, Joseph C.; And Others
This document contains chapter 2 (3 articles) of a collection of 35 articles primarily from American Association for Counseling and Development (AACD) publications on the most important legal and ethical topics about which all school counselors need to be informed. "Confidentiality: To Tell or Not To Tell" (Joseph C. Zingaro) asserts that a child's right to privacy, regardless of the child's age, should be compromised only in the most extreme circumstances. It offers recommendations for school counselors who are asked to disclose information told to them by a child in confidence. "Ethics and School Records" (Margaret M. Walker and Marva Larrabee) encourages school counselors to take responsibility for managing students' records in a manner that assures students of their rights."Privileged Communication in School Counseling: Status Update" (Vernon Lee Sheeley and Barbara Herlihy) reports that 20 states have passed statutes that provide some degree of protection of the privacy involved in student and school counselor relationships. The statutes in existence are summarized and implications for practice are discussed. (NB)
