Crossing Professional Boundaries for Rural and Frontier Clinics: SELF-PACED ONLINE

3 Jan 2021 - 31 Dec 2025

Presenter: Jennifer Ross, PhD, MFT

Behavioral health professionals often cross professional boundaries because they fail to recognize the boundaries as they arise, or fail to realize the impact of crossing those boundaries. At the conclusion of this workshop clinicians will be able to: identify professional boundaries in the clinician/client relationship, understand the consequences of crossing boundaries that lead to ethical violations, evaluate relationships on multiple levels to avoid crossing boundaries, understand the pitfalls of bartering arrangements, and understand the risks of working with clients that are family or friends. Through an examination of case studies, we’ll discover how to distinguish the line between crossing professional boundaries and sound practice.
