Boundary Setting in Clinical Practice: The Best Ethical Practices



  • Resolve boundary conflicts and ethical dilemmas in business and with clients
  • The importance of utilizing the word NO
  • Social Media myths and boundary setting
  • Learn and develop skills for boundary setting around self-care

Are you having trouble saying “No” to clients?

Do you struggle with establishing and maintaining healthy boundaries?

Do you avoid setting boundaries for fear of losing a client?

As clinicians we come face to face with “gray areas” on a daily basis and skate around potential issues that could put our businesses, clinical work or clients in jeopardy. We struggle with setting boundaries personally and professionally and it ultimately has a negative impact on the clients we serve.

Latasha Matthews MA, LPC, CPCS, CPLC will use activities, vignettes and practical business experience to discuss the boundary issues and dilemmas that exist (and are often overlooked and swept aside) that could impact your business, your bottom line and your clients. Develop the confidence needed to address complex boundaries issues in clinical practice.
