Course Description:

Are you having trouble saying “No” to clients?

Do you struggle with establishing and maintaining healthy boundaries?

Do you avoid setting boundaries for fear of losing a client?

As clinicians we come face to face with “gray areas” on a daily basis and skate around potential issues that could put our businesses, clinical work or clients in jeopardy. We struggle with setting boundaries personally and professionally and it ultimately has a negative impact on the clients we serve.

Latasha Matthews, MA, LPC, CPCS, CPLC, will use activities, vignettes and practical business experience to discuss the boundary issues and dilemmas that exist (and are often overlooked and swept aside) that could impact your business, your bottom line and your clients. Develop the confidence needed to address complex boundaries issues in clinical practice.
Objectives:

  1. Establish how the ACA Code of Ethics applies to boundary setting in private practice/clinical practice.
  2. Consider ethical dilemmas clinicians face surrounding boundary setting with respect to utilizing technology with clients in clinical practice.
  3. Articulate the financial burdens clinicians experience that could cause ethical dilemmas in clinical practice.
  4. Establish ethical practices to ensure client safety, maintain confidentiality and obtain informed consent when utilizing telemental health services.
  5. Determine how counselor impairment influences the therapeutic relationship and identify ethical strategies to minimize the potential impact on the client.
  6. Establish clear ethical guidelines to address the potential for a dual relationship with a client in a clinical setting.
