What is Confidentiality and what does it mean?

    • Confidentiality means that information exchanged in a counseling/group session is kept private/confidential unless released by parent or student permission. Professional School Counselors are required to follow ethical and legal guidelines in maintaining confidentiality. For the safety and well being of children, limits to confidentiality include the occasional need to consult with a child’s teacher or the school administrator; or the need to report to proper authorities if a student discloses that he or she is being harmed, has harmed, or is planning to do harm to him/herself or someone else.
