In all our relationships (work, social life, family) we consciously or unconsciously set personal and professional boundaries. In the work setting, it is important to be conscious and thoughtful about the boundaries we set with clients to maximize the therapeutic impact of our interactions with system involved youth and their families. In this class we will discuss how to set culturally appropriate boundaries with clients in different situations including use of technology, physical contact, dual relationships and accepting gifts. We will also explore particularly challenging situations and have time to think through boundary issues in participants’ current caseload.
