Boundaries, Borders, and Multiplicities in Psychotherapy: Ethics and Professionalism for Psychologists. Presented by STEPHEN BEHNKE, JD, PhD, MDiv.


Friday September 19th, 2014 (9:30am - 4:30pm)
Arbutus Club (Strathcona Room)
2001 Nanton Ave, Vancouver, BC V6J 4A1

Saturday September 20th, 2014 (9:30am - 4:30pm)
Harbour Towers (West Harbour Ballroom)
345 Quebec Street, Victoria, BC V8V 1W4

This program will explore ethical and professional aspects of boundaries and borders within the psychotherapeutic context. The program will review standards in the CPA and APA Ethics Codes that are relevant to boundaries and borders in psychotherapy, and then will explore why these concepts are so deeply embedded in our ethical understanding of the psychotherapeutic process. This exploration will address how borders and boundaries take shape in a relational context where multiple dimensions of self-identity are at play, such as age, gender, gender identity, race, sexual orientation, disability and religion.

Dr. Stephen H. Behnke received his J.D. from Yale Law School, his PhD. in clinical psychology from the University of Michigan, and his M.Div. from Harvard Divinity School. In 1996, Behnke was made chief psychologist of the Day Hospital Unit at the Massachusetts Mental Health Center, a position he held until 1998, when he was named a faculty fellow in Harvard University’s program in Ethics and the Professions. Behnke then directed a program in research integrity in the Division of Medical Ethics at Harvard Medical School.
