In rural Alaska, dual relationships with our clients are the rule rather than the exception. In this seminar-style discussion, we will explore the complexities of providing confidential, ethical care in small communities. What makes some dual relationships harmful, and how can we reduce the risk of harm? As providers, how do we protect our own boundaries and maintain good self-care? Participants will share their experiences as we examine these challenging issues.
- Identify aspects of dual relationships that may result in harm to clients.
- Describe five strategies for maintaining healthy boundaries in dual relationships.
- Explore the complexities of providing ethical and confidential care in small communities
