You have discussed how being culturally competent is important in terms of how you are able to view our clients and your own reactions to differences within the client-professional relationship. Please discuss the following this week:
- How do you think culture relates to professional boundaries?
- Which professional boundaries do you think will be easy to maintain? Which ones do you think you might have more difficulty with? Why or why not?
- Why do you think professional boundaries are important in the client-professional relationship? How do they impact the professional interview?
- Discuss your thoughts on the professional boundary of self-disclosure. When can it be helpful? When might it be harmful?
