Preserving Hope in the Duty To Protect: Counselling Clients with HIV or AIDS.
Wong-Wylie, Gina
Canadian Journal of Counselling, v37 n1 p35-43 Jan 2003
Psychologists may struggle with what to do when counseling recalcitrant HIV-positive clients who refuse to disclose to third parties at risk. This paper revisits the legal and ethical quagmire that pits "dangerous patient exception" against client confidentiality rights. A 'duty to maintain hope,' which may ultimately minimize the spread of HIV in society by inviting client's social responsibility, is proposed. (Contains 40 references.) (GCP)
