Issues in Consent, Capacity, Documentation and Confidentiality

Professor Robert Solomon, LL.B., LL.M.
presented by The Canadian Institute for Child & Adolescent Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy (CICAPP)

In this presentation, Prof. R. Solomon will review and discuss many of the current legal challenges and issues faced by psychotherapists, including

· The changing legal environment;

· The Canadian courts' expectations and attitudes;

· Legal authority in treatment, counselling and care: patient consent versus statute;

· Cross-border counselling: indicate governing law in the consent form or patient materials; and check the guidelines of your College and those of the other jurisdictions;

· Legal implications of e-counselling and video counselling versus in-person counselling;

· Consent forms: Do I need a signed consent form; does it have to be witnessed; who should get the signed consent; how long is it good for; and what is the evidentiary weight given to a signed consent?

· When am I going to be held civilly liable in negligence? Negligence versus errors in judgment and professional incompetence. The scope of liability in negligence. How do the courts establish the standard of care? Compliance with or breach of customary practice;

· To whom do I owe a duty of care in negligence and a fiduciary duty when counselling children?
