CONFIDENTIALITY & COUNSELING
In order for a counselor or psychologist to contact a teacher or other professional regarding your child, you will be asked to sign a confidentiality waiver. With parental consent, counselors and psychologists may then discuss general details about your child with other professionals on a need to know basis. Such professionals are also bound to confidentiality by law. In any situation, your personal details will not be shared with anyone. When a Linden counselor is under the impression that a client is at acute risk of harm to self or to others, the counselor is bound by law to take measures to ensure the client and other individuals are safe and receive professional help.
