Preventing Boundary Violations in Clinical Practice Paperback / softback
What do you do when you run into a patient in a public place?
How do you respond when a patient suddenly hugs you at the end of a session?
Do you accept a gift that a patient brings to make up for causing you some inconvenience?
Questions like these-which virtually all clinicians face at one time or another-have serious clinical, ethical, and legal implications.
This authoritative, practical book uses compelling case vignettes to show how a wide range of boundary questions arise and can be responsibly resolved as part of the process of therapy.
Coverage includes role reversal, gifts, self-disclosure, out-of-office encounters, physical contact, and sexual misconduct.
Strategies for preventing boundary violations and managing associated legal risks are highlighted.
