This new course is covers some of the same ground as our ‘Introduction to Professional Boundaries’ course, including the fundamentals of boundary theory and practice, introducing participants to the core knowledge from experience, from research and the literature and helping them to develop and enhance practice. It is a confidential space and includes space for conversations with the course leader about the issues of concern.
