Agenda:

Introductions (5 minutes)

Revisiting Ethics in Professional Practice (30 minutes) Professional education introduces future practitioners to relevant Codes of Ethics. This portion of the program will revisit what professionals should already know about ethics, so that we are all on the same page as we explore further. What do we mean by “ethical”? How is “ethical” related to “legal”?

Understanding Professional Boundaries (45 minutes)

Working closely with clients can challenge the boundaries of professionalism, but setting and maintaining boundaries is important both personally, and professionally. This portion of the program will explore guidance from ethical codes on how to define appropriate boundaries with clients, highlighting the obligations of mental health professionals.

Drawing the Lines (60 minutes)

Using case examples, this portion of the program will explore various types of relationships between professional and client that can make maintaining professional boundaries complicated. - Conflict of interests - Dual Relationships o Family Relationships o Sexual Relationships o Other Relationships - Complicated Financial Interactions o Bartering for services o Other financial interactions

Protecting Yourself from Ethical & Legal Liability (30 minutes) This section will outline the framework that professionals can use to prevent ethical conundrums, and protect themselves from legal liability when maintaining professional boundaries is most complicated.
