Boundary-related matters are associated with burnout. Having a set of strategies to address them can make a major difference in our professional and personal lives.

As such, managing boundaries and ethics in mental health is a concern for all of us clinicians. A deeper insight into the different related factors will help us properly manage the boundary issues that commonly present themselves. Please join us and let us learn these crucial skills to work with our clients around boundary issues.

We look forward to learning with you.

Here’s what attendees have been saying about SWEET seminars:

“My experience continues to be great. Contextualizing stood out for me because if clients don’t have enough judgment, it would be hard to set boundaries.” – Mimose, LCSW-R

“Assistance and guidance from other colleagues about how to maintain appropriate boundaries with clients and why these boundaries should be implemented.” – Roxana, LMSW

“This was a good training. I like the practical ways to apply boundaries with clients throughout the therapeutic process, and that the instructor uses examples to explain the techniques.” – Ondria, LMSW
