Minors (Under 18s)

If you are under eighteen years of age, please be aware that the law may provide
your parents the right to examine your treatment records.

It is my policy to request an agreement from parents that they agree to give up access to your records. If they agree, I will provide them only with general information about our work together (if at all), unless I feel there is a high risk that you will seriously harm yourself or someone else.

In this case, I will notify them of my concern. I will also provide them with a summary of your treatment when it is complete. Before giving them any information, I will discuss the matter with you, if possible, and do my best to handle any objections you may have with what I am prepared to discuss.
