The Importance of Maintaining Boundaries Within Clinician/Client Relationships: A Summary of AK, ID, OR, & WA Law & Ethics (webinar)

Eric Strom

Presented by Eric Ström, JD, PhD, LMHC
January 2022

For behavioral health providers, the effectiveness of clinical work is dependent upon the clinician/client relationship. When appropriate boundaries are not maintained, it is these same relationships that can be at the root of serious professional misconduct. In this one hour workshop, participants were provided with a summary overview of the legal ethical standards regarding non-clinical relationships with behavioral health clients. Dr. Ström then applied these standards to discussion of scenarios and real-world examples. The focus was dedicated to applying legal and standards from Alaska, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington.
