This is our most frequent consultation request. You provide the subject matter by asking us to help you consider how to make ethical decisions about a specific case, or how to resolve a specific ethical or ethical/legal dilemma. This is not a substitute for clinical case consultation, which focuses on clinical issues. Instead, it focuses on ethical and ethical/legal questions such as:
I have just received a subpoena. What are my options about how to respond ethically?
I believe my office mate is doing unethical things, but he won’t talk about it. What should I do?
A parent of my child patient is demanding to see the complete therapy record. What can I do?
An adolescent has requested therapy without his parents’ knowledge. What are my options?
This type of consultation can be accomplished by telephone.
