The Complete Professional (DR-2)Back
Based on the premises that all clinicians have the potential to commit an ethics or boundary violation, but that all violations are preventable, this course is an interactive, online course for clinicians who wish to avoid professional lapses. Participants learn how to reduce their own potential for committing a violation and to recognize red flags in themselves and others. This course culminates with the development of a Personalized Protection Plan that will assist clinicians in upholding the ethical and professional obligations of their profession.
*This course is not remedial in nature and is not intended to address boundary issues that have already occurred

"This course has been VERY helpful. I only wish that it had been required early on in my career and think it should be prior to licensing. This will change my behavior... both personally and professionally."
"I feel like I am more aware of red flags and can set better boundaries with patients regarding cell phone and social media. I will try and be mindful of catalysts like crises at work and at home."
