How can a student see the counselor?
The rules of confidentiality for counselors are very different from those of teachers. Confidentiality is important to maintain a trusting relationship with students. Students are told that what they tell Mrs. Lundgren is confidential unless someone is in danger. Only then will Mrs. Lundgren tell someone to make sure they are safe and healthy. Information is not disclosed to other staff members, parents, or students unless permission is granted. If a student discloses information deemed crucial to a child's safety or well-being, the student is informed that his/her parents must be notified.
