This project includes a critical analysis of the current literature available on the ethical, clinical, and legal implications of third-party record release requests within the counselling context. Due to the limited available literature on the topic of third-party record release requests, this project also includes an application of an ethical decision-making model to a fictional case study to highlight ethical and clinical concerns related to third-party record release requests. The final contributions of this project include a comprehensive list of questions that psychologists should consider when responding to third-party record release requests to respond in an ethical manner as well as a draft manuscript that is based on the content in this project and will be submitted to a peer-reviewed journal.
