Boundaries and Dual Relationships for Paraprofessionals
About This Course
As a behavioral health paraprofessional, you may find yourself in situations where you or the people you work with may blur the professional boundary, particularly by engaging in some form of a dual relationship (a professional relationship plus another type of relationship with the client). In some cases, this “crossing of the boundary” may strengthen the relationship, but sometimes a dual relationship can be dangerous for you and the people you support.
This course helps learners: Explore the concepts of boundaries and dual relationships—a form of boundary crossing, look for ways to avoid issues that could harm you or your clients, and ensure the relationship between you and your clients remains professional.
