Rules and Regulations Governing Psychology Professionals

Prior to beginning work on this discussion, read the required Boldt (2012) article.

A psychology professional must be knowledgeable of the rules and regulations that govern the profession in his or her state of residence. For this discussion, access your state board of psychology's website. Conducting an Internet search for your state's name and "State Board of Professional Psychology" will likely produce the link to the website (i.e., California State Board of Professional Psychology). Once on the website, look for the state's rules and regulations governing professional psychology. These are often listed as links or tabs with titles such as "Laws and Regulations", "Rules and Regulations", "Laws, Policies, and Rules", "Statutes and Rules", "Statutes and Administrative Codes", etc.

Review the complete rules and regulations for your state and pay special attention to the sections concerning rules for working with minors. Then, conduct an Internet search for information on consent and confidentiality for mental health treatment for minors in your state of residence. In the discussion, you will address the following case study:

You are a counselor. Twelve-year-old Billy is using drugs without his parents' knowledge and has come to see you for help. Billy wants outpatient treatment for his substance abuse and informs you that his parents do not know about his drug use. He refuses to permit you to share information with his parents.

While a person under the age of 18 is often considered a minor and generally most states would require them to obtain consent from a parent or guardian prior to receiving mental health treatment, there are several exceptions to this general rule.

In your initial post, analyze your state's rules and regulations governing psychology as a profession as well as your state information on consent and confidentiality with regard to minors. Apply these regulations to Billy's case. Elaborate on how you would approach the case by providing information on your state's consent and confidentiality laws and assessing any impact these may have on your options for Billy's treatment.

Apply any relevant ethical principles and professional standards of psychology as they relate to this complex situation. Evaluate any personal beliefs that may conflict with legal requirements you have as a counselor within your state. Detail what actions you would take to be true to both yourself and the professional requirements.
