Do you ever struggle with how close or distant our relationships with our clients should be in order to maintain our ability to be helpful and therapeutic within our continuum of care services? If you work as part of a team, do you all agree on what healthy relationship boundaries with our clients should look like? We provide services to our youth and their families in their own homes, in schools and in their communities; this can be confusing for us and for our clients as to what our roles are and what kinds of relationships are being developed. The true helping relationship requires clear relationship boundaries so we don't unintentionally exploit our clients, undermine our team members, or experience our own "burn out". This training clarifies what we mean by boundaries, ways in which we might be over-stepping them, what is meant by dual relationships, & issues regarding the boundaries relating to physical contact with our kids.
