The Learning Curve Institute: Remote Learning - Boundaries, Reflective Practice and Self-Care Workshop

Remote Learning: Boundaries, Reflective Practice and Self-Care Workshop

This workshop has been approved for CPD points for members of The Psychological Society of Ireland and The Addiction Counsellors of Ireland.

This one day training will be delivered remotely by The Learning Curve Institute this October.

This programme is designed to provide an overview of boundaries and the many ways in which they can be encountered and managed. The workshop will also include reflective practice and self-care as the three areas are closely linked. There is a strong emphasis on practical examples of boundary issues with examples of best practice offered throughout the training.

The workshop will build on and expand the existing knowledge within the members of the group in relation to boundaries and enhance confidence in participants in relation to their understanding of boundaries and the ways they are respected and guarded. Participants will explore why boundaries are important at work, which will include looking at scenarios which the participants create which best reflects the work they do.

The programme includes identifying positive behaviour in relation to our personal boundaries and understanding negative behaviour and how to identify actions that suggest an individual's boundaries are becoming inappropriate. Participants will be made aware of 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 reflect on their own practice and discuss clients that they have had or are currently working with (suitably anonymised) in relation to managing boundaries. Self-care will also be covered in the programme as it is fundamentally linked to our ability to manage our personal and professional boundaries.

The training will be delivered via Zoom. The course will allow you to interact with the trainer and other participants in a virtual classroom where, in addition to the workshop content, there will be time built in for live discussions, question & answer sessions and skills practice. The course also uses breakout rooms for small group exercises where participants will have the opportunity to meet other professionals.

This workshop is open to individuals and can also be delivered as in-house training to groups of employees.

Suitable for:

Psychologists, Counsellors, Psychotherapists, Nurse Practitioners, Youth Workers, Social Care Workers or any profession where maintaining professional boundaries are important.

Date and Times:

  • 12 October 2022 (Wednesday) - 09.30 - 16.30 (CET-1)

About the Course:

During the day, learners will have the opportunity to discuss and explore issues relating to boundaries, reflect on their practice and the ways in which they have encountered this as an issue in their work. There will be the opportunity over the training to allow participants to experience “real” situations and scenarios to transfer the theory of the course into practice. The importance of practicing self-care will be included along with discussions around what constitutes self-care. Participants will receive links to supporting documentation and a copy of the presentation slides by email which will help them to develop their understanding of boundaries, reflective practice and self-care appropriate to this level.
