Always be aware of what you do with the information including what is written down (files, minutes, etc.) and where it is kept; also think about where you are talking and who can overhear the conversation. Never forget the worst case scenario; in this sort of environment - a breach of confidentiality could result in physical harm or the loss of someone's life!  A victim is at more risk at the time they leave the relationship. Already anxious and worried, the person may never have talked to anyone before. Breaches in confidentiality could prevent them from trusting anyone else enough to seek help again.
