The Ethical Dilemmas in Today’s Therapy: Clarifying Boundaries



The ethical rules for therapists used to be straightforward and unambiguous: no gifts, no dual relationships, and no out-of-session contact. But with the ease of virtual connection and the many ways in which the current tumult of politics and societal foment makes its way in therapy and challenges our boundaries, shifts in our profession’s norms have introduced new questions about professional boundaries. In this recording, you’ll explore:

  • The impact of these times on therapists, and how fatigue and dysregulation affects ethical decision-making
  • How to establish norms for transparency and client empowerment
  • The do’s and don’ts of therapist self-disclosure, and 
  • How to handle ever-shifting online and social media boundaries with clients
  • Best methods for dealing with ethical decisions when considering virtual vs in-person support
