Therapeutic Boundaries

As a mental health clinician, you may find yourself in situations where you or the people you work with may blur the therapeutic boundary. In some cases, this “crossing of the boundary” may strengthen the therapeutic relationship and enhance treatment effectiveness. However, boundary crossing poses a serious risk, as it can also harm those individuals you aim to help. For this reason, it is crucial that mental health professionals are aware of the potential risks and danger signs. This course explains the concept of a therapeutic boundary and how it differs from a social relationship. You will learn about the ethical role of the clinician, the difference between boundary crossings and boundary violations, and how to recognize potentially dangerous situations. As you master these skills, you will become more effective in maintaining an appropriate relationship between you and the individual(s) you serve. This course, which includes clinical case examples and interactive exercises to reinforce your learning, is appropriate as a review for experienced mental health clinicians as well as an introduction for less-experienced mental health clinicians or health professionals specializing in areas other than mental health (particularly nurses, social workers, addiction professionals, and certified counselors).
