Confidentiality/ Code of Ethics

Picture By Cynthia Bergsbaken

Confidentiality can be defined as the client’s guarantee that what occurs in the therapeutic setting remains private and protected. First and foremost, the issue of confidentiality concerns the client’s rights to privacy and safety. These rights belong equally to every client I see regardless of age, sex, or relationship to me or another client. These same rights apply to both verbal and written interactions I have with anyone other than the client. I follow the IARP Code of Ethics.
