Agreement to Maintain Confidentiality of Protected Clinical Information

I understand that I will be hearing clinical material in this course that must be kept strictly confidential and not discussed or disseminated in any form outside of the course, including personal recording, photos, or storing of digital content. This means that I need to view the on-line program in a private place where it cannot be overheard or observed. I further understand that although clinical material is heavily disguised, if I feel I recognize the person being presented, I will leave the session immediately and later contact the PCFINE administrator, Alice Rapkin at 781-433-0906 or through the PCFINE website, for a refund.
