Defining professional boundaries provides a secure foundation for the professional’s–patient therapeutic relationship by nurturing this sense of trust in the patient. Patients trust that staff will always act in their best interest. For educational purposes, think of a house of cards. Much like a house of cards, it is the professional’s responsibility to build this foundation and keep it from falling. Crossing boundaries can be compared to removing a card from the bottom of the house of cards. One card might be okay, but too many and the house of cards, in this case the professional relationship, comes crumbling down. Join this webinar to visit the difference between a professional boundary crossing versus a boundary violation and review real scenarios that are pertinent to real experiences in community or facility settings.
