Professional Boundaries: Ethical Obligations of Social Workers

Thursday, June 1, 2023
6 – 9 p.m.

Can mental health professionals work with clients that they know from outside of the job? Can you barter with clients for your services? Mental health professionals are charged with the legal and ethical responsibility to maintain professional boundaries, but the obligation isn’t always so easy to discern. This class brings real-world context to ethical concerns often experienced by professionals in practice in maintaining appropriate professional boundaries. This class will provide a framework to contemplate ethical dilemmas and make informed decisions that insulate professionals from legal liability while protecting clients from harm.

Completion of this class will result in the receipt of three continuing education hours.


This class is designed to meet the New York state requirement that mental health professionals receive three hours of training on maintaining appropriate professional boundaries (effective April 2023). This class is not specific to New York state and can satisfy ethics and boundaries training requirements for any state.

This event is open to alumni, faculty/staff, parents, students, and the public.
