About the event

Overview: A boundary may be defined as the edge of appropriate professional behavior, transgression of which involves the therapist stepping out of their clinical role or breaching their clinical role. 

Boundaries define the expected and accepted psychological and social distance between clinicians and clients. Sometimes, it is difficult to clearly define the perimeter of these boundaries and the integrity of the relationship. Consequently, overfamiliarity, ethical violations, and long-lasting emotional and psychological effects can result. 

This presentation provides an introductory overview of professional boundaries while working in a forensic setting. It clarifies ethical expectations for varying degrees and addresses potential boundary violations and the issues that can result from the lack thereof. Ways to establish and maintain healthy boundaries while working remotely and while conducting in-person sessions are also covered.

Who Should Attend?
