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.
