AHS Counselor's Corner
In partnership with other educators, parents, guardians, and the community, Allen High School Counselors work as advocates to ensure that each student’s potential shall be revealed, respected and fulfilled.
School Counselors & Confidentiality
While it is important that a student’s conversations with a school counselor be kept confidential, confidentiality does have its limitations. According to the American School Counselor Association’s Ethical Standards for School Counselors, counselors must “keep information confidential unless legal requirements demand that confidential information be revealed or a breach is required to prevent serious and foreseeable harm to the student” (American School Counselor Association [ASCA], 2010).
The most frequent type of breaches includes a student verbalizing the following:
1) Verbal, Physical, or Sexual Abuse
3) A desire to harm him/herself
4) A desire to harm someone else
5) An unreported sexual assault
