Two (2) other documents related to your Intake and Evaluation process are a Notice of Privacy Practices and a Release of Information Consent Form.
The Notice of Privacy Practices describes your rights and legal guidelines regarding how your medical information can be used. You can read this notice at any time. Your counselor will also review it with you at the beginning of your therapy.
The Release of Information Consent Form allows you to voluntarily give your counselor permission to release confidential information in support of your therapy. For example, you may be asked to complete a Release of Information Consent Form that would allow your therapist to talk with a spouse or life partner, a psychiatrist, a primary care physician, a previous therapist, a school teacher, etc.
