Will my parents be informed about my discussion with the Psychologist?
What is discussed with the Psychologist remains strictly confidential and parents are not informed about anything if the child does not want to. However, by law parents are informed only when there is evidence of threat to themselves or to someone else or if you are threatened by someone. What do we mean? The Psychologist is required to inform parents if the child wants to harm himself/herself or someone else.
Your parents will have meetings with the psychologist -less frequently- for parental counseling. These sessions will focus on how your parents can deal with the hospitalization of the patient and how they can help you more.
