• Confidentiality

    While it is important that a student’s conversations with a counselor be kept confidential, confidentiality does have its limitations. Discussions between a counselor and student are to remain confidential unless permission is granted by the student or a breach is required by law. A breach of confidentiality as required by Texas law would include a student verbalizing the following:

    1)      Verbal, Physical or Sexual Abuse

    2)      Neglect

    3)      A desire to harm him/herself

    4)      A desire to harm someone else

    5)      An unreported sexual assault
