**NEW DATE** This event has been rescheduled to DECEMBER 3rd, 2016
Appropriate boundaries in psychotherapy are essential for ethical practice. It is salutary to revisit the nature of boundaries as they are described in ethical standards and codes of professional conduct. It is also salutary to go further. As particular psychotherapy cases progress, the psychology of boundary problems can be more challenging to understand than the language of written standards and codes. Choices can be made and events can unfold before their meanings are fully experienced. This half-day workshop will consider the ways in which even well trained and generally conscientious therapists can get into boundary difficulties. Boundaries should not be a taboo topic that we avoid discussing or thinking about. Every patient and every therapist has internal boundaries which are likely to affect the outer experience of boundaries in the therapeutic relationship. Thoughtful attention to boundaries enhances therapy and protects patients and therapists alike.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
This continuing education event is intended for professionals and trainees of any mental health discipline or background. Psychotherapy educators, supervisors, and managers of mental health treatment programs are also welcome.
