Primary Discussion Response is due by Wednesday (11:59:59pm Central), Peer Responses are due by Sunday (11:59:59pm Central).

Initial post: Your supervisor asks you to see a critical client who is high risk for harming others. He is a 25 year old veteran who is starting to show signs of aggression in your office when he talks about his 18 year old ex-fiancé who just left him for his best friend. You are going to open this case and need to explain to the client the limits of confidentiality and Tarasoff law.

  • Discuss the limits of confidentiality and Tarasoff law with this client and why they are important.
  • How will you present this information to the client? Explain one way you would approach each of these legal issues.
  • If he is unable to get his aggression under control, what might be your course of action?
  • Identify one ethical issue in this case. Explain one way you would approach the ethical issue.
 
Discussion board response to your classmates: Role play- pick one other student to respond to and take on the role of the client for their approach. How would you as the client react?
