    • Describe how each of the professionals working in the counseling setting presented might collaborate in order to respond to any legal or ethical issues described in the scenario.
    • List the role of each professional in the counseling setting.
    • What function would each professional serve in terms of assessing or responding to any of the legal or ethical issues that may arise when working with this client?
      1. Imagine that you are the counselor working with this student or client, and you will be serving as the lead person to coordinate efforts among the team of professionals at this setting.
      2. Describe the strategies you would use to identify and implement effective collaboration between the professionals who may be working to provide assistance for this client. Include specific examples to illustrate some of the actions you would take.
      3. Develop an effective communication to one of the professionals assisting your client:

For the student in the school counselor scenario: Compose a letter that you would send, with the student’s and his or her parents’ permission, to the school psychologist who will be seeing the student for an evaluation. In the letter, describe the reason for your referral, the relevant information you would like the psychologist to have about the student, and the information you’d like to receive after the evaluation is completed. (You may need to make up some of the details about the student and your work with him.)

Think carefully about information that would be useful for this professional to have about your client and any areas in which you want to respect the client’s privacy and confidentiality. Your letter should be approximately one page long and should be presented in the actual format you would use if you were sending it to the professional.

For the client in the mental health counselor scenario: You and the client agree she will meet with a psychiatrist for an evaluation. Compose a letter that you would send, with the client’s permission, to the psychiatrist. In the letter, describe the reason for your referral, the relevant information you would like the doctor to have about the client, and the information you’d like to receive after the evaluation is completed. (You may need to make up some of the details about the client and your work with her.)
