Course awards 3 CE Ethics per COMAR 10.42.06
What do I do when a client tells me they’ve contemplated committing suicide? Who do I contact when I’m worried a client is going to hurt someone? Will I get in trouble if I talk about my clients outside of work?
This course brings real-world context to ethical concerns related to confidentiality, often experienced by professionals in practice. We’ll explore the goals and limits of confidentiality through an analysis of ethical and legal complications. This course will provide a framework to contemplate ethical dilemmas and make informed decisions that insulate professionals from legal liability while protecting clients from harm.
Original recording date: July 11, 2023 Length: 180 Minutes
Upon the completion of this course, participants will be able to:
- Recall the ethical obligation to keep client information confidential.
- Understand the legal obligation to keep client information confidential.
- Recall at least 2 ways to discuss with clients confidentiality and legal obligations so that clients can make an educated decision when sharing information with the professional.
- Understand how to respond to ethical, legal, and moral conundrums faced when considering whether or not to breach client confidentiality.
