All information is confidential and will not be released or discussed with anyone, including faculty and staff, without your written permission. However, by law there are conditions under which disclosure is mandated:
- When there is reasonable suspicion of child abuse including sexual exploitation as defined by AB1775, or abuse to a dependent or elder adult.
- When you communicate a direct or indirect threat of bodily injury to another.
- When either you or one of your family members informs us that you are a threat to seriously harm yourself or another (this includes the PCC community).
- When disclosure is required pursuant according to a legal proceeding.
In addition, we use a team approach as a service delivery system. We have pre-doctoral and post-doctoral psychology interns that are here to serve you. Because they are in training, they may discuss your case with their supervisors during a case conference.
