Ethical Dilemmas with our clients are not always obvious. And potentially any issue can become a boundary violation. Have you ever given a client a hug? Bought a client a coffee? Done a favour for a client? Accepted a gift from a client? This highly interactive workshop looks at real life situations while heightening our ethical awareness. With this day’s preventative focus, the workshop concludes with practical steps for participants to consider when faced with an ethical issue.
