The reality is that ethical and boundary dilemmas occur from time to time. While you know the rules that govern your professional behaviour and you conduct yourself in a professional manner, there will be occasions that you may be unsure of what to do.
Then, it`s all about choices. So what option do you take? And when it is all said and done, did you make the “right” or best decision given the circumstances?
Working with health care and teaching professionals primarily, prevention is the focus of Claudia’s services. The overarching learning objectives threaded throughout all her services are;
- To enhance understanding of professional boundaries generally,
- To encourage critical thinking and analysis when entering into seemingly innocent and thought to be harmless actions or behaviours with clients or students,
- To encourage the consistent application of that critical analysis,
- To provide preventative tools that can be applied to day-to-day work,.
