Topic: "Secrets" that Therapists Keep 

Ethical issues are raised when a therapist has highly relevant information that their client does not know about regarding a significant other in the client's life (and the significant other is not also a client).

  • How do you decide whether some information is important to share?
  • Is it sometimes unethical to not share relevant information?
  • How do you deal with your feelings as a therapist when you cannot share a "secret" (e.g. knowledge that your client's spouse is having an affair?) 

These questions will be explored throughout this Ethics Salon.

Readings: No assigned readings.

Restrictions: Attendance is restricted to registrants of the College of Psychologists of BC.
