Informed Consent with School Counselors

30-Minute Poster Session
Gloria Dansby-Giles, Frank L. Giles 
Informed consent is essential for establishing and maintaining a counseling relationship. Two critical components related to the informed consent process are confidentiality and duty to warn and protect. These two concepts present unique challenges for school counselors.
 School counselor practices related to informed consent, confidentiality, and duty to warn and protect were examined and compared to a state educator code of ethics. A phenomenological approach was used to examine the experiences of school counselors. The results from the in-depth interviews and the documents review will be shared.
