Case #1 It does not appear that Jamie had discussed inform consent as part of her ethical and legal duty to inform the client clearly about confidentiality and the exceptions. Sarah apparently did not know that the sessions were confidential until the session had already started and later you can also tell that she did not know about the exceptions to confidentiality. Although Jamie told her that the sessions were completely confidential, she failed to tell her that there were numerous exceptions and disclosing those limits, both as part of the inform consent contract ……is ethically required. (Younggren and Harris 2005 p.590) This makes the client unclearly informed. According to the Code of Ethics (2015, 1.2) I didn’t see anything …show more content…
Had she dealt with transference this could have been a way to use it to her advantage to help Sarah in the therapeutic process. Psychotherapist should outline for both children and parents the limit that exist on confidentiality when treating minors. They should contract with the parents to protect the privacy of their minor child in a way that fulfill the parent need to understand what is generally going on in treatment without violating the minor confidentiality rights (Younggren and Harris (2005 p. 598) Had Jamie done this it would have been clear to the parent and the child the issue of confidentiality and its exceptions. The exceptions should have been clearly explained to both. It would ensure that the child’s rights are protected and Sarah would be informed as to what can be disclosed without permission or not. Jamie would also be protecting herself because she had inform them and gotten their consent. In the event that she had to disclose something unlawful she wouldn’t need their permission and she would be in the clear because she had discussed it. Jamie lied to the mother and I think that was unethical. According to Atkin

I explained the purpose of the interview and explained that she was not the subject of the interview. Schemer explained that on Friday, December 11, 2015 at approximately 0610 hours, she was in the mail room along with PSS Perry when Hale came in and immediately made a statement about the more people he killed today, the better it would feel. There was no discussion or conversation prior to Hale’s violent statements, he literally walked in and announced he wanted to kill people that day. While Schemer understands current policy forbids clandestine recording of co-workers, she felt it necessary to record his statements due to their violent nature, therefore she hit the record button on her iPhone. Schemer went on to describe Hale’s continued
The clients’ files cannot be in an exposed to the public place. The clients’ files should be saved or put in a safe place where only people with authorization have access to. Because the therapist is not aware that Merry accessed the client’s file, the therapist should talk to the receptionist about leaving unattended the client’s files, and explain to the receptionist the ethical issues regarding confidentiality. If the therapist becomes aware that Merry looked at the client’s file, the therapist should explain to Merry the importance of confidentiality. The therapist should also let the client know that his/her information was accessed by
QUESTION PRESENTED 1. Under Alabama’s burglary statute, does a former occupant of an apartment who partially moved out four to five days before committing a felony in the apartment and who has a estranged relationship with the occupant have an absolute right to enter? BRIEF ANSWER 1. Probably not. A person has an absolute right to enter as long as he remains an occupant of the apartment, ownership is irrelevant, and an estranged marital relationship is not sufficient.
Informed consent means to give a patient all the necessary information that is needed to make an informed and voluntary decision or agreeing to a treatment, or research that will benefit them. For doctors to fully obtain informed consent, Henrietta should have been told or given the necessary information about the possible risks and benefits of the research, so that she can have an understanding and make a decision whether or not to participate in the study. The purpose, the procedures, the potential risks and benefits of her being involved in the research should have been given to her, and also the risks and benefits of other options available to her should have been presented to her. She should have also been given time to discuss her decision to consent to the research with her family. If anything, I believe that the consent form was about any mishaps that might have happened during her surgery.
1 As a practitioner, it is imperative for me to encourage autonomy with the participant’s perspectives toward their treatment experience, where they dictate the directions of their treatment. This would be evidence with the participant’s treatment plan, where (ACA) A.1.c. Counseling Plans: therapists and their participant will agree to conjointly work together toward formulating a treatment plans, ensuring the client an opportunity for a realistic potential to achieve their objectives in accordant to their abilities, temperament, developmental level, and circumstances of client. This would assist the counselor with eliminating whatever barriers in position to inflict harm to the individual. (ACA) A.4.a.
In the novel, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, Henrietta was an unwilling donor in tissue research. Researchers took her tissue without her consent, which was wrong of them to do. Today, researchers should have someone sign a consent form if they want to use that person's tissue for any form of research. This way the donor of the tissue knows exactly what will happen, and will not be as worried. It also establishes some form of trust between the researcher and the donor.
With the type of service that I work for the way that consent is obtained is through communication with the individuals care manager or funder who will complete an individual assessment, gain consent to share information with our service/ staff and will then forward this on to our service. Once we have received the referral with consent we will then arrange a date for a full assessment which will either be a face to face or telephone assessment where we will then discuss with the individual about consent, why we require consent and who information will be shared with. We will also explain that there are different levels of consent such as partial consent, this will be used for information relating to emergencies or to update family members
The Health Care Consent Act (HCCA) sets out explicit rules and specifies when consent is required and who can give the consent when the client is incapable of doing so (College of Nurses of Ontario (CNO), 2009). According to the HCCA (1996), there is no minimum age for providing or refusing consent in Ontario. A person is capable if he or she understands the information given that is relevant to making a decision concerning the treatment, and can appreciate the anticipated consequences of both accepting or declining a treatment. (Keatings
In the Jewish Chronic Disease Hospital study of 1963, a vulnerable group of subjects, such as the chronically ill and debilitated noncancerous patients in New York were injected with live human cancer cells without their consent to understand whether the body's inability to reject cancer cells was due to cancer or debilitation. Physicians did not inform the participating patients that they would be injected with live cancer cells so as not to scare them, since it was believed that the cells would be promptly rejected anyway, by the healthy people and the cancer cells would also be rejected by the debilitated patients but at a substantially slower rate (Emanuel et al, 2008). An informed consent of the study was never taken in writing for the
Critical Reflection and Analysis Co-working a case through conducting direct work with an eight-year old girl, I used professional curiosity to explore an alarming self-disclosure made to me about her sleeping with a fifteen-year old boy, who was a non-relative. By keeping an open mind, avoiding making assumptions, analysing what was said and observing the child’s body language, I determined that whilst this incident was really inappropriate, there was nothing untoward happening. However, to safeguard and minimise risk for the child, I relayed this information to the relevant social worker so the concern could be properly addressed and resolved. With the C. family I had to consistently question and evaluate the reliability and validity
This play is the Crucible written by Arthur Miller. The universal theme is lies and deceit because those two things can corrupt the minds of the towns people and the lies will eventually come back to haunt you. The conflict John Proctor and Abigail Williams, also Abigail and Elizabeth, and Tituba and the town’s people will be proven. First, John Proctor and Abigail Williams have conflict because John committed adultery with Abigail and his wife found out.
Medical Malpractice Everyone makes mistakes, but some are more deadly than others. Malpractice is the illegal or negligence, professional activity or they’re working out of the their scope of practice. Medical malpractice is one of the top causes of death in the United States. With this being said, insurance for medical practitioners would be considerably higher.
They do this by receiving informed and signed consent from themselves and the client. Within this consent, will be the aim of not sharing information with any person and moreover, the client and the counsellor to contain a formal understanding of one another. Confidentiality undermines the public trust of the profession. As when professionals conduct confidentiality, they are demonstrating the virtues of integrity, trust and respect towards the
