All mental health professional organizations have standards defining ethical practice. These include guidelines about boundaries, principled decision-making, and professional behavior. At times, government also weighs in, setting certain legal requirements that mental health professionals must adhere to. Sometimes these standards are consistent with professional standards (confidentiality). Sometimes they add new expectations (Tarasoff duties). And sometimes they conflict (conscience clauses). This workshop is about the relationship between legislative and professional ethical and practice standards. We will investigate the following legal principles in this context: confidentiality, Tarasoff standards, conscience clauses, and boundary issues.
At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:
- Identify the basic components of confidentiality and Tarasoff Standards.
- Describe the difference between a privacy standard and a confidentiality standard.
- Describe how conscience clauses may conflict with professional codes of ethics.
- Assess themselves for risks of boundary crossings and ask for consultation if necessary.
- Privacy versus confidentiality
- Threats and "true threat" doctrine
- Conscience clauses
- Boundaries - historical antecedents in mental health
