Privacy

Personal growth and development is considered necessary to becoming an effective counselor. As a result, courses incorporate strategies for promoting such growth. These experiences may include, among others, journaling, reflecting on one’s difficulties with the counseling process, identifying and sharing personal issues and history that may hinder effective and culturally sensitive counseling, and sharing personal experiences with bias and discrimination. We recognize the sensitivity necessary to create an environment of safety for such sharing, and expect faculty and students to conduct themselves in a way that promotes such safety. One necessary component in creating safety is the faith that one’s disclosures will be held in confidence. Therefore, we expect students to keep confidential any material shared in class and in course assignments. Also, students enrolled in the clinical psychology degree programs should review the Non-Academic Competence Policy  and the Guidelines for Students’ Sharing Affective Experiences and Reactions to Didactic and Clinical Material  described in the Master of Arts (MA) in Clinical Psychology degree program.
