The Extended Edition is the most comprehensive option in our suite of boundaries courses. Through pre-seminar preparation and post-seminar follow-up, this edition of the course benefits participants in two ways. The 10-hour pre-course, consisting of readings and written exercises, prepares participants for the conceptual, emotional, and practical work that will occur in the seminar. And the weekly, telephonic post-course Maintenance and Accountability Seminars reinforces what was learned in the classroom, elevates participants accountability through revisiting their Personalized Protection Plans, and engages them in a community of peer review and support.
Our suite of Professional Boundaries and Ethics courses employ the premise that everyone has the potential to commit a boundary or ethics violation—yet not everyone does. As in many other similar boundaries and ethics courses, participants learn why they are being held to account. But in our course, participants also 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 learnings drive an intensive process of self-assessment and introspection, culminating in the development of a Personalized Protection Plan that each participant designs to avoid future wrongdoing, safeguard patients and colleagues, and honor the reputation of their profession.

Course reviews and testimonials
"Invaluable course. One never realizes how precious one's license and reputation is until it is threatened!"

"This has been the single most informative course I have taken in my 25 years of practice, I wish I had taken it years ago. I cannot thank PBI enough for having this course. "
"A superb experience! Educational as well as therapeutic and gave me the opportunity to learn from others. I can make peace with my transgressions and begin to heal. Thank you!"
"This course is priceless and life-changing in my opinion, ALL clinicians need to take this course. “You don’t know what you don’t know” and that puts all of us at the highest risk. Overall, I feel I have more hope and have been inspired. I strongly believe I will be able to impact many lives positively in the future."
