Participant will also be provided with an introduction to understanding and recognizing the origins, potential dangers and implications of behaving in a manner that crosses over the boundaries of ethical guidelines.

This course covers these issues to help develop a plan to minimize the potential for a boundary and ethical transgression, thereby protecting the professional, the client and the professions.
To increase the practitioner’s awareness, knowledge and understanding of professional ethics through a beginning exploration of the concept of ethics and their origins, moral theory and authority and their professions' collective conscious; and in so doing to assist the participant in understanding and recognizing boundary crossings, and avoiding boundary violations as they pertain to clients, colleagues, the profession and to society.
