Upcoming Webinar - Personal & Professional Boundaries
Wed, May 24, 2017 @ 3:00- 4:30pm ET (2 CT/1 MT/12 PT)
Addiction counselors and mental health professionals develop very close relationships with clients. Our caring nature can make it challenging to establish and maintain appropriate boundaries, both personally and professionally. Boundary crossings and violations are detrimental for therapeutic relationships and can jeopardize the counselor’s professional role. Social media and internet communication has increased blurring of boundaries. This webinar will help professionals clarify roles, identifying personal triggers, and reduce vulnerabilities. Modeling appropriate boundaries with clients has value for everyone involved. Earn 1.5 CEs (free for NAADAC members - join now!).
