Description

This program assumes that sexual dual relationships with clients are unethical, and, therefore, addresses only non-sexual dual relationships. The course consists of a series of articles that discuss such issues as boundary violations, boundary crossings, and dual relationships. The material examines various codes of ethics with regard to dual relationships and instructs clinicians on how to make ethical decisions regarding dual relationships. The course reviews the main arguments for and against dual relationships and provides illustrations of judicious boundary crossings and non-sexual dual relationships that are unavoidable, ethical, and that can be an integral part of well-formulated treatment plans.

Target audience: Psychologists, mental health counselors, marriage and family therapists, social workers, addiction counselors, nurses.

This CE program is designated as intermediate.

This course meets the requirement for the risk management discount for the American Professional Agency.
