Professional Boundaries

These courses employ the premise that everyone has the potential to commit a boundary violation—yet not everyone does. Participants are prompted to open their eyes to what predisposed them to violate professional or ethical norms at the particular time and in the particular manner that they did. These courses cover a broad spectrum of professional boundary issues, including professional misconduct, non-sexual and sexual boundary violations, workplace relationships, and much more.
