Event description
This half day interactive workshop will assist staff and teams to develop and maintain professional boundaries in the workplace.

About this Event

This workshop will outline the importance of practicing healthy and appropriate boundaries with both clients and colleagues in person and online. The session will also explore the importance of organisational guidelines and personal self care strategies to ensure the safety and wellbeing of workers, teams and clients.

Learning outcomes

On completing the course, participants will be able to:

  • Identify healthy and appropriate professional boundaries and their importance in relation to worker role, client duty of care and organisational purpose e.g. dual relationships, personal disclosures, physical and social contact.
  • Develop further awareness of inappropriate, blurry or shifting boundaries and the importance of early intervention strategies.
  • Understand the impact of values, ethics and identity on the boundaries of clients, colleagues and staff.
  • Understand the importance of organisational policy and practice in establishing and maintaining guidance, safety and support for workers and clients. · Understand the impact of professional boundaries and behaviour on workplace culture and wellness e.g. gossip, cliques, oversharing, socialising.
  • Reflect on their own practice (including personal triggers and vulnerabilities) and implement strategies to ensure both self-care and safety.

Members of the Australian Association of Social Workers (AASW), the Australian Psychological Society (APS) & Australia Community Workers Association (ACWA) may also receive CPD hours towards their professional development requirements.
