The Importance of Maintaining Boundaries Within Clinician/Client Relationships


For behavioral health providers, the effectiveness of clinical work is dependent upon the clinician/client relationship. When appropriate boundaries are not maintained, it is these same relationships that can be at the root of serious professional misconduct. In this one hour workshop, participants will be provided with a summary overview of the legal ethical standards regarding non-clinical relationships with behavioral health clients. We will then apply these standards to discussion of scenarios and real-world examples. The focus will be dedicated to applying legal and standards from Alaska, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington.
