Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
The changing nature of societal demands and information technologies
have led many to express concerns about the traditional meaning of
confidentiality in mental health practice and even whether true privacy
exists any more.
effective psychotherapy depends
upon an atmosphere of confidence and trust in which the patient is willing to
make a frank and complete disclosure of facts, emotions, memories, and fears.
Because of the sensitive nature of the problems for which individuals consult
psychotherapists, disclosure of confidential communications made during counseling
sessions may cause embarrassment or disgrace. For this reason, the mere possibility
of disclosure may impede development of the confidential relationship necessary
for successful treatment.
