Understanding and Maintaining Professional Boundaries 25-Aug-2022

August 25 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm AEST


This 3-hour webinar is aimed at providing the participants with the knowledge and skills to: understand the range of professional boundaries that need to be set with clients; know how to maintain boundaries with clients who may have difficulties working within those boundaries; understand the importance of professional boundaries for worker well-being and; have developed their skills in promoting their own well-being.

At the end of the webinar the participants will:

  • Have developed their understanding of the fundamental professional boundaries that need to be adhered to when working with clients (knowing your own role and remaining within it; understanding duty of care and confidentiality; only seeking information that is relevant to the service being provided; the importance of limiting self-disclosure)

  • Have developed their skills in setting and maintaining boundaries when clients have difficulties doing this themselves (explaining your own role; simple scripts for explaining boundaries to clients)

  • Have extended their skills in promoting their own well-being at work. (learning to not take things personally; making empathic connections with clients while not becoming over-involved; setting a strong boundary between work and home).
