Davidson County School Counselors adhere to the American School Counseling Association and the American Counseling Association Ethical Standards
Information shared in a counseling relationship is treated with the deepest respect. For the most part the information shared in a counseling session will not be repeated to anyone. This information belongs to the student. We have an ethical responsibility to share some information. We are required by law to notify parents of any threats of suicide. We are also required to notify proper authorities of child abuse, neglect and threats to harm others. We must also turn over records that are subpoenaed by a court of law. We hope that you understand our ethical and legal responsibility concerning these matters.
