It is a short summary of the frequent ethical problems that are encountered by practicing psychologists and therapists, as well as other healthcare professionals, with guidelines for avoiding problems. It is full of practical tips on how to avoid common ethical dilemmas.

The second article is a comprehensive report on Mental Health published by the Office of the Surgeon General of the United States. This course provides therapists and healthcare professionals with a review of current information on ethical issues about confidentiality; values underlying confidentiality, research on confidentiality and mental health treatment and the current state of confidentiality law. This course is designed for healthcare professionals who work in both private and public, and urban and rural areas.
