However, the records contain information that you think would cause the probation officer to misappropriate her authority with your client because the officer has informally shared with you her disdain for people who have engaged in the type of activity that your client admitted to in one of your sessions.
While you have the obligation to release your client’s records, your values about the potential abuse of authority by the probation officer cause significant internal conflict about releasing the records.
