Establishing and maintaining boundaries as a helping professional is essential, aiming to protect the client, the professional, and the professional’s employer. These boundaries help to avoid or reduce emotional distress and facilitate open, safe, and transparent communication that prioritizes the needs of the client while maintaining necessary boundaries for all. Understanding these boundaries is also part of our ethical code for social workers, counselors, case managers, and nurses. Gaining knowledge of the relevant laws and ethics that inform and guide our practice is also crucial for all helping professionals. The first half of this training will focus on our ethical obligations around communication/boundaries as helping professionals and the unique challenges we may face in healthcare settings. We will take a deeper look at the intersection of our ethics and laws through case scenarios and various activities. In the afternoon we will focus on boundary issues around social media, internet searches, and electronic record keeping. In addition, we will discuss the importance of ethics and boundaries in maintaining our own mental health as helping professionals. This training will provide many tips and resources for helping professionals to take and utilize in the field right away!

By Attending Our Workshop, You Will Be Able To:

  • Explain how ethics and the law intersect to complicate ethical dilemmas
  • Identify the concepts of duty to report and duty to evaluate
  • Summarize a decision-making model when an ethical or boundary issue occurs
  • Describe the importance of social media policies for boundaries
