About the Book
The Ethical Risks of Professional Boundaries is a unique approach to boundary setting for professionals in health care and counseling. All professionals cross boundaries. Most of these are benign and are probably helpful to the relationship and therefore helpful to the care of the patient or client, but if they lead to boundary violations a toxic environment may arise.

A licensed professional has to understand themselves and their vulnerabilities in order to set healthy boundaries. They must recognize that they are the product of their training, their family background, their reactions to stress, their emotional intelligence and their practice of empathy. This book addresses self- evaluation to help the professional determine if they are prone to violating boundaries that could harm or damage the professional/patient relationship. This book is designed to educate, inform and illustrate how each professional can set their own boundaries to avoid unnecessary trauma and conflict.

 

Reviews
This is a book that needed to be written. It emphasizes self-care and awareness for maintaining healthy professional boundaries. It outlines problematic thinking patterns, what proper boundaries look like and the slippery slope behaviors that get us into trouble.
- Dr. Melissa Pennington, Medical Director, Sante Center for Healing
This book provides an insightful and practical discussion of the challenging issues related to professional boundaries. It is recommended reading for those in healthcare leadership roles and care providers.
- Dr. Bill Nelson, Past President of The American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons
This book is about the difference between boundary crossings and boundary violations. It is about practicing as a professional whether you are a physician, social worker, nurse or psychotherapist or any other healthcare provider. We are all at risk of slipping and making ethical errors with our clients and patients and this book clearly helps with those decisions.
- Jen Biddle, LCSW-S. LCDC-i
