Legal and Ethical Considerations for Group and Family Therapy: Considering the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPPA)
Considering the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPPA), the idea of discussing confidential information with a patient in front of an audience is probably quite foreign to you. However, in group and family therapy, this is precisely what the psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner does. In your role, learning how to provide this type of therapy within the limits of confidentiality is essential. For this Discussion, consider how limited confidentiality and other legal and ethical considerations might impact therapeutic approaches for clients in group and family therapy. Learning Objectives Students will: Compare legal and ethical considerations for group and family therapy to legal and ethical considerations for individual therapy Analyze the impact of legal and ethical considerations on therapeutic approaches for clients in group and family therapy Recommend strategies to address legal and ethical considerations for group and family therapy Discussion: Post an explanation of how legal and ethical considerations for group and family therapy differ from those for individual therapy. Then, explain how these differences might impact your therapeutic approaches for clients in group and family therapy. Support your rationale with evidence-based literature.
