Can DUTY TO WARN and CONFIDENTIALITY exist together?
When anybody is associated with any professional institution or practice, specific pieces of information and processes are not disclosed to anyone. Such a condition is Confidentiality. It is the most popular and essential aspect of attorney, physician, therapist, or other individuals that generally cannot be shared with third parties without the client's express consent. On the other hand, Duty to warn is a responsibility of Psychology practitioners where they have to allow information to a third party if their client can hurt an individual or society. So the question is, How can the OXYMORONS, i.e., CONFIDENTIALITY AND DUTY TO WARN EXIST TOGETHER?
