The duty to protect has proliferated widely and has been adapted in some form throughout the United States. Forty years after the Tarasoff ruling, the threshold of the duty to protect remains subjective, with no clear set of clinical guidelines regarding when a breach of confidentiality is warranted, which places mental health providers in a Cited by: 2.

The duty to warn is an exception to the normal standards of client confidentiality that mandates that mental health professionals must warn third parties whom they believe their client may harm. The duty to protect is a counselor’s duty to reveal confidential client information in the event that the counselor has reason to believe that a third party may be harmed.

The duty to protect requires action if the psychologist believes that the client has the intent and ability to carry out the threat. Psychologists also have a duty to protect when an immediate family member or an individual who personally knows the client reports that the client has made threats against clearly identified individuals or buildings.
