The Daily Grind: Professional Boundaries in Human Services
It’s imperative for human services professionals to adhere to boundaries when working with clients. However, it isn’t always black and white. Professionals are faced daily with ethical dilemmas and questions regarding boundaries.

This can be additionally challenging when working with different populations. Many of our own beliefs about the population we serve, experiences with our own family members or social expectations about the treatment of our clients all inform our ability to adhere to boundaries.
• Does one of your clients remind you of your beloved grandparent?
• Have you been hurt by painful things a client or patient has said to you?
• Have you been presented with a gift from a client who expresses aggressive insult when you politely decline the gift?

These are just a few of the scenarios that are possible when providing services to vulnerable populations.

In this 1-hour overview workshop, we will examine the definition of professional boundaries and work through case studies to help enhance your awareness of boundaries in everyday practice.
