Confidentiality is a respected part of psychology’s code of ethics. We understand that for people to feel comfortable talking about private and revealing information, they need a safe place to talk about anything they’d like, without fear of that information leaving the room. Psychologist follow strict guidelines for professional conduct and confidentiality, and information will remain confidential unless you give your permission to release it. For example, you may wish you psychologist to discuss your care with your other health care professionals to coordinate your care. However, there are some exceptions.
