When can a psychologist or spiritual advisor share my private information without my consent?
In some specific situations, psychologists and spiritiual advisors can share information without the client's written consent. Common exceptions are:
- Disclose of private information without consent in order to protect the patient or the public from serious harm — if, for example, a client discusses plans to attempt suicide or harm another person.
- We are required to report ongoing domestic violence, abuse or neglect of children, the elderly or people with disabilities. (However, if an adult discloses that he or she was abused as a child, the psychologist typically isn't bound to report that abuse, unless there are other children continuing to be abused.)
