Hi, I have 3 questions for discussion. Please see explanation. It doesn’t need to be too long-about 200 words altogether.
Confidentiality has been called the cornerstone of the counseling relationship but neither privacy nor confidentiality are guaranteed. There are narrowly defined exceptions when counselors cannot legally or ethically maintain confidentiality. Some examples include when a client indicates an intention to harm themselves or someone else and when they have been abused or have caused abuse. As a result of legislation, litigation, and ethical deliberations, professional guidelines call on counselors to breach the confidence and tell appropriate public authorities.
In the interest of fostering trust and being transparent with a client it is essential to state the limitations of confidentiality. In order to adequately inform clients of these exceptions to the promise of privacy, therapists must add statements about exceptions to informed consent. Proposals have also been made to expand on these exceptions to confidentiality that are under consideration.
In this discussion board you will address the issue of limits to confidentiality by answering the following questions.
1. After viewing the Limits of Confidentiality: Presentation A and B critique both of the presentations. Focus on fulfilling your duty of informing the client about the limits of confidentiality in way that they can make an informed decision about participating in treatment.

2. State how you might deliver the limits of confidentiality in an informative and engaging way. State specific examples that would you would provide, questions you might anticipate from the client and how you would invite the client to ask questions when they do no
3. In the article by Doyle & Walls-McKay (2017), they suggests additional exceptions to confidentiality. Which of their suggestions do you think are warranted and provide a reason for including the additional, proposed exceptions? If you believe none of the additional exceptions are warranted to include as exceptions in the informed consent process, justify your reason. Article is attached.
