Marital and Family Therapy

Category - Law & Ethics

You made a really nice impression on Eric’s parents. You’re a therapist who knows his/her stuff and they felt very comfortable. Since Eric is only five, the parents ask you what you will be able to share with them about what is said in session. You explain that:
  1. You will release everything, since Eric is under thirteen
  2. You will release only what is required by law and only by legal order
  3. You will discuss what you believe could benefit Eric in his treatment
  4. You never discuss client issues, no matter the age, outside of session
Answer - C - Without citing specifics, you would still be able to say that you would discuss Eric’s treatment to the extent that it could benefit him. That way, you are able to maintain his confidentiality while offering progressive feedback. This idea helps to facilitate communication and flow between the support system, your most important allies.
