A student has the right to privacy and confidentiality. A counseling relationship requires an atmosphere of trust and confidence between the student and counselor. Confidentiality ensures that disclosures will not be divulged to others except when authorized by the student or when there is a clear and present danger to the student and/or to other persons (ASCA, 2005) GA Law 49-5-41.
