Course Overview

Via live interactive webinar
Course Description:
Can mental health professionals work with clients they know from outside their job? Can you barter with clients for your services? Mental health professionals are charged with the legal and ethical responsibility to maintain professional boundaries, but the obligation isn’t always so easy to discern.

This course brings real-world context to ethical concerns often experienced by professionals in practice in maintaining appropriate professional boundaries. This course will provide a framework to contemplate ethical dilemmas and make informed decisions that insulate professionals from legal liability while protecting clients from harm.

Course awards 3 CE Ethics per COMAR 10.42.06. Course meets NYS requirements for Mental Health Professionals to receive 3 hours of training on maintaining appropriate professional boundaries (effective April 2023). This course is not NYS specific and can satisfy ethics and boundary training requirements for any state. Please check with your board with any questions.

The training was well put together, and easy to follow. I appreciated having the flexibility to complete this training on my own time as well instead of taking time out of my work day to travel and attend an event.

I felt that this training did well at delving into and providing understanding of professional boundaries within the context of our ethical guidelines as well as scenarios that could be grey areas. It is especially useful for the continuing education necessary for ethics and would be a good refresher for anyone.
