Ethical and legal considerations are important in the field of psychology. This certainly holds true for the area of psychological assessment.

Case Study 5
Chase Knotting was a patient who had been seen in 2003 by Dr. David Miller, a psychiatrist. In 2008, Chase was about to remarry, and his fiancée’s father asked a psychologist friend, Dr. Saul Leventhal, to write Dr. Miller to find out about his soon-to-be son-in-law. Dr. Leventhal wrote to Miller stating specifically that he was requesting information in order to advise and apprise a concerned future father-in-law. Dr. Miller’s response letter indicated that Chase had been diagnosed as a “manic-depressive with psychotic features.” Dr. Miller went on to write that his advice to the bride-to-be was to “run as fast and as far as she could away from this man . . . of course, if he didn’t marry her, he would marry some other poor girl and make her life hell.”
