Whether continuing to work from home or back at your usual place of work, personal and professional boundaries may become blurred. This programme is designed to provide an overview of boundaries and the many ways in which they can be encountered and managed. The workshop will also include reflective practice and self-care as the three areas are closely linked. There is a strong emphasis on practical examples of boundary issues with examples of best practice offered throughout the training. 


The course is highly interactive with some group exercises and scenarios and is aimed at participants who wish to underpin and strengthen their existing knowledge around boundaries. Above all this workshop is a practical application of relevant theory and practice in relation to boundaries.

The methodology used in this training will be a combination of the following:

  1. Participative: The participants will be asked to contribute to the training both in the large group and also in smaller ones. There will be a number of exercises throughout the training that are designed for the group to be split up into smaller groups.
  2. Experiential: The training will allow participants to contribute by using examples of anonymous clients that they have worked with or are currently working with in relation to managing boundaries.
  3. Theory into practice: The training will allow some role?plays that will encourage participants to put the theory of managing boundaries into practice.
  4. Information giving: A copy of the presentation and information on relevant reading that will be emailed to each participant.
  5. Worker led: The training will be flexible to the needs of the group.
Target Group

This training would be suitable for: Psychologists, Counsellors, Psychotherapists, Nurse Practitioners, Youth Workers, Social Care Workers or any profession where maintaining professional boundaries are important.
