Ethical Issues in Dealing with Questionable Disclosures
The Ohio Psychologist
This article explores some questionable disclosures that do not precisely fit the commonly recognized mandatory and permissible disclosures that are outlined in the American Psychological Association Ethical Principles of Psychologists Code of Conduct (APA, 2017). This article covers a client's admission to a felony and a psychologist's hunches that the elders may be being emotionally abused. The Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct are cited to show important ethical issues. Vignettes illustrate each relevant standard, covering ethical dilemmas and mistakes that might easily be made.
