The Professional Will: A Diverse Issue with Ethical Implications

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Professional wills have been ignored in counseling literature. Specifically, this presentation will focus on what happens to records following the death or incapacitation of the counselor. That is, who has access to the counselor's records? In the absence of a professional will, the answer to the above question is debatable, often in court. Many persons representing diverse backgrounds ignore this topic (professional will) and are unaware of its importance, ethically and legally. Case studies will be discussed. Handouts (including a model of a professional will) will be provided.
