Ethics & Boundaries: Embracing the Gray in Post-Pandemic Practice

This unique ethics and boundaries course will allow for significant participation of attendees through the use of case scenarios and ethical decision-making processing. We are seeking ethical dilemma scenarios from participants in the upcoming training that can be used during breakout sessions and as a large group to discuss and learn. Ethical dilemma scenarios can be submitted by following the instructions and completing this form.

Boundaries have been blurred, the landscape of our professional practice have encroached upon our personal lives, and the relationships with our clients and colleagues have changed. The pandemic asked much of us by way of flexibility and adaptation; much of it to best serve our clients, but at what cost? Is virtual practice blending into your home life? Do you feel like the clear and rigid boundaries you once had created to protect dual relationships have crumbled or blurred? Have colleagues gotten a glimpse into your world via the virtual space, perhaps sharing more than what seems comfortable? We will explore all the new gray areas in our practice and collegial spaces. Uniquely, participants in the session will provide examples of ethical dilemmas they have faced and will walk through the challenges to learn how to best embrace, or color the gray, to improve ethical decision making when circumstances arise.


Learning Objectives

  1. Explore and learn how to apply an ethical decision-making model in everyday practice.
  2. Discover the importance of focus; learning to be fully present and request what you need to maintain healthy boundaries with clients and colleagues.
  3. Understand and apply varying forms of intelligence when setting healthy boundaries and settling ethical disputes.
  4. Learn and understand the ‘Art of Listening in a Healing Way.’
  5. Recognize and embrace the gray of personal decision making when ethical dilemmas are presented.


Upon completion of this course attendees will earn 4 Category I Contact Hours, including 4 Ethics Hours.
