The law protects the relationship
between a client and a therapist,
and information cannot be disclosed
without written permission. There
are however some exceptions whereby
the therapist is legally required
to disclose information from
- When there is reasonable suspicion of child abuse or elder or dependent adult abuse.
- Where the client threatens violence to an identifiable victim.
- When the client presents a danger of violence to others or is likely to harm him or herself unless protective measures are taken.
