About the Course:

The workshop will build on and expand existing knowledge in the group in relation to boundaries and enhance confidence in participants in relation to their understanding of boundaries and the way in which they are respected and guarded. Attendees will explore and understand why boundaries are important in work, which will include looking at scenarios such as child protection, self‐harm, suicide ideation etc. The programme includes identifying positive behaviour in relation to our personal boundaries and understanding negative behaviour and how to identify behaviours that suggest an individual's boundaries are becoming inappropriate. Participants will learn how to raise concerns in a professional manner, and where to seek advice and information about boundary issues as they arise. The workshop will allow space and time for participants to look at their own practice in relation to managing boundaries and discuss clients that they have had or are currently working with (suitably anonymous) in relation to managing boundaries. There will be an element of self-care covered in the programme.
