Confidentiality
Conversations with a therapist are confidential and cannot be disclosed to anyone without your permission, with a few legal exceptions. Those exceptions are only for life-threatening emergencies and child and elder abuse. Therapy records are kept separate from all other school records and cannot be released without your consent, except under very rare legal circumstances.
