3. Explain How the Clients in this Case Study Would be Affected by Unethical Disclosure of Client Information. Situation Psychologists are expected to keep their patient’s personal information confidential (Allan, 2015). In this case, Dr. Yeung has a responsibility to keep Aiden’s personal information confidential.

Affected By Unethical Disclosure of Client Information (cont). Solution While Dr. Yeung understands that Aiden never follows through with his threats, she understands that given his history and current drinking problem, she will have to take his words seriously. Her dilemma though is that she might lose the good relationship she has with Aiden and thus lose the patient’s chance to recover. On the flipside, Aiden might harm his mother and girlfriend. Therefore, failure to release the info will harm. My verdict: I believe the main aim of the study is to help determine if male parolees with a history of domestic violence such as Aiden are fit to be released back to their wives. Aiden is clearly not yet ready, and Dr. Yeung should report it as her assessment. 6

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
