Ethics and Boundaries in Complex Trauma & Dissociation

Recorded June 2021, this webinar series will explore Ethics and Boundaries in Complex Trauma and Dissociation for one hour per week over four weeks.  

We will discuss the complicated ethical dilemmas in treating clients in different developmental stages with complex trauma and dissociation. Common ethical challenges will be discussed, including reporting and confidentiality issues; ongoing abuse and revictimization; ethical issues related to self-harm, suicidality and danger to others; boundary issues; management of the therapeutic relationship and intense countertransference; ethical management of impasses.

We will explore the intersection of our personal and professional ethics, its impact on our ethical decision-making, and how we can develop a mindful, compassionate and boundaried approach to ethics that is well integrated with our clinical approach.
