Limits and Scope of Confidentiality and Privileged Communication:

 

            All information shared with me in the context of clinical consultation is held in strict confidence with the following exceptions:

 

If a consultee exhibits signs of impairment, unethical or dangerous behavior, I will refer the consultee to appropriate professionals for assistance and treatment.


If the child of a consultee under the age of 18 is being abused or neglected by law I need to make a report to the local child welfare agency.

You can also pay the fee by regular mail and the address is: Lois Ehrmann P.O. Box 21, Pine Grove Mills, PA 16868.

 

NO Responsibility for Emergency Coverage:

 

Individuals who engage in consultation services with me are not clinical clients and I will not be responsible for the provision of crises intervention services for them.

 

Code of Ethics:

 

As a professional counselor, I follow a number of ethical codes.  My primary code of ethics is one endorsed by the American Counseling Association (ACA) of which I am a member.  I am also a member and follow the Codes of Ethics endorsed by the following entities:

 

National Board of Certified Counselors (NBCC)

Association for the Training and Treatment of Attachment Disorders in Children (ATTACh)

Association of Counselor Educators and Supervisors (ACES)

EMDR International Association (EMDRIA)

 

I also agree with, and will follow, the code of ethical behavior espoused by NCE/CEE’s Standards for the Ethical Practice of Clinical Supervision.

 

 

AND FINALLY….

 

I wish to receive consultation services from Lois Ehrmann PHD, LPC, NCC. I understand that these consultations do not constitute clinical supervision or counseling and that I remain completely responsible-ethically and legally- for the decisions I make in my own situations. Lois Ehrmann as my contracted consultant will provide me with an opportunity to discuss concerns and issues about which she may have some expertise and she may help me consider options for responding, but the comments made for my consideration are not in any way mandates.

 

I also understand that although we may sometimes need to discuss personal issues that may be relevant to my decisions, these consultation services do not constitute psychotherapy.

 

 

I understand the potential limits of the confidentiality of this relationship. I understand that if I provide identifiable information about a situation in which my consultant has an ethical or legal obligation to report confidential information she will inform me at that time and will give me the opportunity to make the report myself.

 

I understand that if my consultant becomes aware or if she believes she has a potential conflict of interest in her relationship with me she will notify me of that fact immediately and will cooperate in helping me find a different consultant.

 

When I fill in my name, email address and if desired a message and then click below the "Send Message" Button it means that I have read all of the details of this informed consent and agree to all the information detailed in it.
