Boundaries are the distance at which I can support you and me simultaneously.
When relationships are predictable, healthy, and positive, they lead to emotional safety. That leads to trust, and that in turn leads to authenticity. Your relationship with the young people you work with, has the potential to become their internal working model for all other relationships in their lives.
This module aims to provide participants with an understanding of the importance of professional boundaries. We explore power balance/imbalance, who negotiates the boundaries and who is accountable should a violation occur. The workshops begin with a self-evaluation and assessment of practice styles and behaviours which may indicate potential liability risks.
We help build awareness of susceptibility by assessing personal and professional vulnerabilities, general to the professional and specific to the individual, which place him or her at risk for boundary violation. We look at the importance of boundary setting; why it’s needed and how to negotiate it and give an overview of the consequences of boundary violation.
This training is a must for any professional working with children or young people and their families, parents or carers. It’s suitable for various settings and either group or 1:1 dynamics.
