Chapter 9 is about the importance of creating conversations, how therapists’ policies about confidentiality are not confidential, and that the dilemmas therapists face in upholding their policies can be talked about, with each other and with others, as long as patients are not identified. It also discusses the shared language that all mental health professionals can use for creating clearer conversations with each other about this difficult aspect of practice, and that can be helpful for structuring student training and supervision about confidentiality, for teaching staff and employees in clinical settings, and for writing on the topic in academic and clinical journals, as well as for educating attorneys, judges, legislators, and the public.
