Are OCPD Appointments Confidential?

At the Office of Career and Professional Development, we strive to protect the confidential information of our clients. We do not share confidential information without client consent or without sound legal or ethical justification. We also make every effort to ensure that confidentiality of clients are maintained by the OCPD team, including administrative staff, OCPD trainees, and student workers.

During the counseling session, we inform clients of the limitations of confidentiality and we try to identify foreseeable situations in which confidential information must be disclosed.

The general requirement that we keep information confidential does not apply when disclosure is required to protect clients or identified others from serious and foreseeable harm or when legal requirements demand that confidential information must be revealed.

Examples of when we may disclose confidential information may include, but are not limited to:

To the extent possible, we take reasonable steps to inform clients of the above limitations before confidential information is disclosed. When we are required to disclose confidential information, only essential information is revealed and only on a need to know basis.

The OCPD Confidentiality Policy was drafted based on the guidelines and standards set forth by the National Career Development Association (NCDA) Code of Ethics.
