Privacy and Disclosure
Undergoing treatment with a clinical psychologist often entails discussion, revelation and discovery of extremely personal and intimate experiences, histories, feelings, and tendencies. A primary duty of any mental health professional is to keep this information strictly private, except in very unusual situations. In keeping with the standards of the profession, Wellstar's psychologists follow the American Psychological Association's Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct, as well as the laws and rules governing the practice of psychology in Georgia.
