Professional Boundaries in practice

The one-day course covers the fundamentals of boundary theory and practice, introducing participants to the core knowledge from experience, from research and the literature. There are sessions on:

  • Sexual Attraction
  • Power
  • Touch
  • Vulnerability
  • Self-disclosure

The course runs every two months in central London and can also be commissioned to be run in-house, tailored to the circumstances of participants.

The course involves group discussion, working in pairs and small groups, watching and discussing short film clips, playing The Professionalism Game®.

There is space for consideration of how the core understandings apply to the participants own circumstances and occupational role, along with a chance to decide on any actions needed arising from the session.

“Really good – fantastic insight into boundary issues previously hadn’t thought about or considered.
Great value thanks. Really pithy stuff so could have been very dry but your presentation skills were excellent so it was easy to engage.

Engaging, amusing, relevant. Brought own experiences into the course well. A really useful resource for us to use in performance management.

Thoughtful and plenty of emotional intelligence. Despite high level experience in room demonstrated expert knowledge.

Really relaxed teacher/facilitator. Experience and knowledge second to none.
