Workshop Description
Can mental health professionals work with clients that they know from outside of the job? Can you barter with clients for your services? Mental health professionals are charged with the legal and ethical responsibility to maintain professional boundaries, but the obligation isn’t always so easy to discern. This course brings real-world context to ethical concerns often experienced by professionals in practice in maintaining appropriate professional boundaries. This course will provide a framework to
contemplate ethical dilemmas and make informed decisions that insulate professionals from legal liability while protecting clients from harm.

 

Learning Objectives

After the completion of this webinar, participants will be able to:

1.    Describe the ethical and legal responsibility of mental health professionals to maintain appropriate professional boundaries with their clients.
2.    Define dual relationships.
3.    Apply a framework to avoid dual relationships whenever possible.
4.    Apply a framework to minimize potential harm to clients and the professional whenever dual relationships are not avoidable.
5.    Explain how to demonstrate that a client has not been exploited or coerced, intentionally or unintentionally.

This workshop is approved for 3.0 continuing education credit hours.
