Describe the potential tension between maintaining an individual’s confidentiality and disclosing concerns to agreed others

The potential tension between maintaining an individual’s confidentiality and disclosing concerns to agreed others can only overcome, knowing what is necessary to share. I don’t need to share an individual’s every confidential matters with others unless there is a significant risk of harm or abuse involved to an individual or surrounding others. We have to maintain trust and ensuring individual’s and others safety. An individual discloses secret things sometimes to carer as part of bonding trust. In these situations, carer put in place of a great dilemmas between maintaining individuals’ trusts and professional obligations. There are few examples are given below when you have to disclose concerns to agreed others -

  • ·         An individual discloses an intention where a significant risk involved causing harm to themselves or others.
  • ·         An individual discloses to a carer, that he kissed another individual service user, who has not got any mental capacity, which can be classed as sexual abuse.
  • ·         A depressed individual discloses to a carer, that she lent a big amount of money to her friend and hasn’t got it returned.
