About Dr. Fisher

Dr. Fisher has specialized in confidentiality ethics, with a focus on the ethical complications of
“conditional” confidentiality, which is the only level of confidentiality that mental health clinicians
are now legally free to offer to their patients. Her Confidentiality Practice Model – an ethical
model for insuring the protection of clients’ confidentiality rights — provided a fresh perspective on
this complicated topic.
This ethical model was first introduced as the lead article in in the January 2008 issue of the
APA flagship journal, American Psychologist : See “Protecting Confidentiality Rights: The
Need for an Ethical Practice Model.”
The Center for Ethical Practice website contains an HTML version of that article and an
outline of the Confidentiality Practice Model on which it is based.] At the 2009 American Psychological Association (APA) National Convention in Boston, she
presented an ethics workshop, “Can You Keep A Secret?” based on that article.
In 2018 she was invited by APA to conduct a webinar based on that model for the
Clinician’s Corner workshop series and was invited to conduct a similar webinar for NASP
(the National Association of School Psychologists.)

She has received numerous awards for her work. Most recently:

  • In 2015 the University of Virginia Curry School of Education Foundation presented her with
    the first-ever award as the Outstanding Alumni Human Services Practitioner.
  • In 2016, the American Psychological Association Ethics Committee recognized her
    accomplishments with an award for “Outstanding Contributions to Ethics Education”
    Dr. Fisher has written two books and numerous professional articles.
  • In 2012 she was invited to write the chapter on “Confidentiality and Record Keeping,”
    for the first edition of the APA Handbook of Ethics in Psychology.
  • In 2013 Oxford University Press published her book about therapeutic confidentiality: The
    Ethics of Conditional Confidentiality: A Practice Model for Mental Health Professionals.
  • In 2016 the American Psychological Association (APA) published her second book on that
    topic: Confidentiality Limits in Psychotherapy:  Ethics Checklists for Mental Health
    Professionals.

Other professional articles include:

  • “Replacing ‘Who is the Client’ With a Different Ethical Question”  (Professional
    Psychology: Research and Practice, January 2009, Vol 40, No. 1, pp. 1-7)
  • “Ethics-Based Training for Non-Clinical Staff in Mental Health Settings” (Professional
    Psychology: Research and Practice, October 2009, Vol. 40, No. 5, pp. 459-466).
  • “Psychotherapist Variables Affecting Termination” IN Younggren, J.N., Fisher, M.A.,
    Foote, J.E., & Hjelt, S.E. (2011). “A legal and ethical review of patient responsibilities and
    psychotherapist duties,” Professional Psychology: Research and Practice, 42 (2), 160-168.
  • “Why ‘Who is the Client?’ Is The Wrong Ethical Question” in the Journal of Applied School
    Psychology in 2014. Vol. 30 (3):183-208.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:
1. Describe some of your ethical responsibilities as defined by your own clinical profession.
2. Describe your legal responsibilities as defined by your state licensing board standards and state
laws.
3. List some of the practical clinical implications of these ethical and legal responsibilities.
