Dear Student,
Hi and thank you for using Brainmass. The solution below should get you started. In this particular task, you are being asked to review a particular system of code in practice. This is a rather lengthy code. I suggest being concise about the approach and focusing on certain key elements only as reviewing every single element about it is a tall order. When doing a review - select what is applicable to your main concern and focus on that. I suggest using this simple outline:

1. About the guideline - 100 words
2. On competence & relationships - 100 words
3. Confidentiality & Privilege - 100 words
4. Importance in Practice - 100 words

I think this should cover what you need. You can use the listed resources to further explore the topic. Just let me know via the feedback section if you need further clarification. All the best with your studies.

Sincerely,
AE 105878/Xenia Jones
