Video Training: Confidentiality and Privilege: A Training for California Domestic Violence Advocates

Domestic violence shelters protect the safety of their clients by keeping their information confidential.  This training discusses several topics related to maintaining client confidentiality, including the laws prohibiting the disclosure of confidential client information, and the laws prohibiting the disclosure of a shelter’s confidential address.  It also discusses the protections of the relevant California privilege laws, including the Domestic Violence Counselor-Victim Privilege, which apply when there is a court-related request for a victim’s confidential information.
