Statement of Confidentiality

We are ethically and legally bound to maintain the confidentiality of our counseling relationships and the content of our counseling sessions. We will not release any information to another person without your specific written authorization. If your services were referred by DFCS or DJJ, however, we may be asked to share with them the progress of your case. Phoenix Resource Center staff members follow HIPAA guidelines in protecting your private health information. All staff are required to participate in an annual training on HIPAA and Confidentiality guidelines.   

 

There are times when we are required to break confidentiality:

 

All Phoenix RC staff are Mandated Reporters. Anything you say or do in the context of services is confidentially privileged with the following exceptions:

  1. If we are concerned that you might be at risk of harm to yourself physically, we are bound by law to take appropriate action. This may mean contacting family members or other professionals or taking steps for you to be hospitalized in order to protect you from harm.
  2. If you threaten or suggest that you pose a threat of a physical nature to another person, we are bound by Law to contact that person to warn of possible danger.
  3. If we believe a child or elderly or disabled person is being physically or sexually abused, we are required by Law to contact the appropriate State agency even though this information is disclosed in the context of the confidential counseling relationship.
  4. If you use confidentiality as a means of avoiding legal punishment privilege is waived. Counselors may not aid or abet the perpetration of crimes.
