We must remember that we are here to help others and building trust is paramount to that process. A great many have been injured by the release of information that was private to an individual. One must also consider the agency and how the release of information could do tremendous harm not only to the agency but also to the employees and clients as well. A strong protocol must be established and followed to the letter. Each step must be properly documented as we know if it is not on paper it never happened.
Hogan expresses that no matter the barrier; the nature and purpose of the test must be reveled. Minors must have consent from a parent or legal guardian. Confidentiality is another main principle. By ensuring the patient that the results are confidential, there is a trust that can be built between patient and psychologist, allowing for more accurate responses to be given on the test. When confidentiality is maintained, only qualified personnel have access to the results of the test, however this principle can also be void if the patient poses harm to him/herself or others.
Professional counselors also need to consider how issues such as race, ethnicity, religious beliefs, socioeconomic status, family structure, trauma, and sexual and gender orientation affect a client’s presenting concerns and what impact these variables have on the acceptability of , and the access to, counseling (Erford, 2010). Clients are being misdiagnosed due to managed health care guidelines. According to Braun and Cox (2005) managed care guidelines determine whether and how counselors deliver services and whether services are reimbursable. When insurance reimbursement is denied because managed care
Nowadays people don’t like when other people are in their business. Usually when they get caught in the act of doing the opposite they tend to get hurt. So by applying these rules it will keep you out of trouble and safe. Nobody uses these “unofficial” rules. While some people are not using these rules, a lot of other people are using this rule.
Ethical Dilemma Dual relationships refer to relationships which exist when a therapist interacts with a client or consumer in a capacity beyond the role of a therapist. Dual relationships causes risk to the therapeutic relationship, which may cause harm to trust, confidentiality, and the ability of a therapist to maintain an unbiased perspective. The American Psychological Association (2002) has set ethical principles and standards to provide guidelines for therapist conduct and guidance for ethical decision making. In therapist psychology, therapists are faced with ethical dilemmas which may cause harm to the client or the therapist. In the event a therapist is faced with an ethical dilemma he or she may follow the steps of the ethical decision making process.
Counselling and Self Awareness Because of the intimately private counselling work that qualified counsellors and psychotherapists do with clients, it is vitally important that a counselling professional is fully self-aware. Being able to self-reflect enables a counsellor to identify and develop personal awareness, and to remain emotionally detached from the relationship he/she is developing with a client. Relating to Others Counsellors will naturally draw their own conclusions about self-awareness. Their work with clients may present many personal challenges, but also an on-going opportunity to assess personal strengths, feelings, thoughts and limitations, as they relate to other people. Understandably a counsellor may also experience a sense of personal familiarity, whilst counselling clients, but must remain emotionally detached at all times.
This may also boost employee confidence since knowing a drug-testing system is in place generally helps employees be more productive by not having to fear a drug-related incident jeopardizing their welfare in any way. As I said, there are also some drawbacks to implementing this type of program. Drug testing may be expensive. Employees are less receptive to random drug testing and may perceive it as an invasion of privacy because no probable cause exists. Although random testing in the workplace is legal, some groups
It will portray how dangerous confrontation investigation is integrated in the care delivery of people experiencing with mental health issues specifically from a nursing viewpoint. I will also endeavor to discuss the disadvantage and the ethics of contemplation and evaluate care delivery in a further organized therapeutic method. Bandman and Bandman, (2002) imply that in order to examine an incident we need to ponder analytically, reflecting on our opinions, viewpoints, approaches and usage of semantic. Gamble and Brennan, (2000) imply that understanding amongst contemplation and dangerous opinion to be constructed on contemplative opinion. John’s Reflective Cycle, Pearson, A., Vaughan, B., Fitzgerald, M. (1996) will also be described in this essay to provide the reader a strong understanding and examination of the occurrence, emphasizing the management of risk as a main concern.
On the other hand, others believe that the client’s privilege should be respected because they believe that therapy can help people to lead more peaceful and happier lives and that those who needed the help would not be willing to seek it if they weren’t under the impression that everything that was shared during their sessions would remain confidential. Also, during therapy embarrassing and shameful personal experiences may be shared and if presented in court, it becomes public record that anyone has access to which may embarrass the client. We must ask ourselves which takes precedence when they clash. The consequences vary
To me this is inclusive practice and helps to stop discriminatory practice and respects the preferences of the resident. I find it frustrating when other carers decide for the resident to save time but to remain professional I would not talk to them about it in front of a resident and would stay calm when discussing the issue. I have been bought up in an environment where you always show respect even if you disagree with a person. I play a big part in the induction training of new carers. When carrying out this training I am careful not to push my own beliefs and attitudes onto the new carers and use the policies and procedures to explain the standards expected.
