Maintaining Professional Boundaries

Professional boundary incursions and violations can leave clients, staff and service organisations vulnerable to abuse, and at risk for professional, funder and legal sanctions.

  • explore and clarify the boundary issues and risks associated with providing professional services and care

  • clarify the difference between boundary crossings, incursions and violations

  • recognise and explore common, obvious and more subtle forms of boundary crossing

  • explore the foreseeable impact of boundary transgressions on staff and on others in relation to Duty of Care.

  • explore ways to reduce the likelihood of boundary transgressions and violations, and how to respond if they do occur.

  • explore and develop insight into the ‘system’ and personality factors which may contribute to boundary problems 

  • have the opportunity to review the policies of their own organisations where these exist (in-house presentations only)
