Professionals who serve children address serious human needs in complex clinical, ethical, and political circumstances. Issues of confidentiality, informed consent, and self-determination become more complicated when clients' rights and choices are constrained by their age and maturity and bylegal and parental prerogatives. With these issues in mind, the author introduces memorable frameworks for approaching ethical dilemmas and ethical decision making and uses the frameworks to analyze cases from an array of youth-service settings.
