Patients often express concern about the release of personal information. What you discussed in the session will be treated confidentially in accordance with the law and recognize professional standards. We take very seriously our responsibility to maintain your privacy. Exceptions to our policy of confidentiality may occur when the welfare of a child or dependent adult is in jeopardy or when a patient's behavior may be a threat to self or others.

Furthermore, most HMOs, EAPs, and PPOs require we send reports to them concerning diagnosis, stress factors, prognosis, and treatment goals. If you have any questions about these periodic updates please discuss this with your therapist.
