Abstract

Determining the status of privileged communications between counselors and clients is a complex task. The scope of counselor-client privilege varies considerably across states, and several sections of state codes directly and indirectly influence its status. This article presents an analysis of state laws related to privileged communication in the counselor-client relationship and discusses prevalent legal exceptions. The authors offer implications for practice to assist counselors in balancing their ethical and legal obligations.
