This training will discuss the importance of personal and professional boundaries. The NASW Code of Ethics outlines specific conduct that pertains to boundaries. This topic is critical to the well-being of social workers and their clients. It is assumed that one must be able to set healthy and appropriate personal boundaries to maintain professional boundaries. This idea will be explored further. The definition and challenges of boundary setting will be explored. Participants will have the opportunity to explore, discuss, and process practical scenarios, including role play. Strategies on how to set boundaries will be discussed.
These trainings are only open to our BSW and MSW graduates and current Social Work students. These trainings will be free or low cost and will be held via zoom to accommodate many geographic locations. These trainings will be approved for CE credit by the Michigan NASW.
