This online course will focus on supporting the direct service professional in the housing and homeless sector with establishing and maintaining professional boundaries within an ethical framework. The perspective of boundaries will combine both the relationship with the service consumer and co-workers.
Topics include ethical values, principles, and a code of ethics. Ethical dilemmas will be explored and guidelines on how to deal with them will be provided. Strategies on how to establish and maintain effective, respectful, professional boundaries will also be examined in detail.
It will take approximately six hours to finish the self-paced course, which must be completed within 30 days of enrolling. There will be opportunities to attend regularly scheduled webinars addressing issues relating to Ethics and Professional Boundaries.
