I need two comments one on Steve and one on John post for question 4-1 the question is the same. for Steve post on 4-2 the question change. give me a nice paragraph on each questions commenting on their post. Each question with their own reference it could be at the end of each paragraph. all comments must be substantive. I have added the chapter to the book from class which could be a reference. All references are scholar. Examples are always goods. but back it up. I should get at least 72 words per questions.
While it is true that counselors must disclose information about their client when mandated by the court, it is not up to the counselor to decide whether “the subpoena is meant to protect both Sheila and the counselor”. If we refer to the Code of Ethics of the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (2016), it was clearly stated in Standard II: “When providing couple, family or group treatment, the therapist does not disclose information outside the treatment context without a written authorization from each individual competent to execute a waiver” and that “[m]arriage and family therapists limit client’s access to their records only in exceptional circumstances when they are concerned based on compelling evidence, that such access could cause serious harm to the client”. Unless the other party can produce evidence that you have in your possession proof that Sheila has a history of violent behavior that is detrimental to herself or to others, the counselor may not comply with the request without the express permission of the client.
