Abstract

"It is generally agreed that information shared within the context of a psychotherapy relationship should be kept confidential. However, the delicate balance between clinicians' duty to their clients...and their duty to protect others...is highlighted when threats of violence are made. The complexity of such matters is discussed in this chapter, along with recommendations for addressing the dilemma." (p.584)
