Boundaries: Thinking Outside the Four Walls 

3 Ethics CE hours

This last year, IMHCA learned a lot during the Idaho Licensing Board of Professional Counselors and Marriage and Family Therapists (IBOL) open board meetings in regards to boundary concerns counselors may run into while practicing such as going for a walk during session. As a result, IMHCA’s ethics course this year will be covering these areas in order to better inform our counseling community on current boundary issues and concerns.  The purpose of this workshop is to encourage participants to consider both the benefits and restrictions of boundaries in the counseling relationship. This workshop will examine boundary crossings which are defined differently than boundary violations.  You won’t want to miss this opportunity.

Idaho Counseling Association has been approved by NBCC as an Approved Continuing Education Provider, ACEP No. 2013. Programs that do not qualify for NBCC credit are clearly identified. Idaho Counseling Association is solely responsible for all aspects of the programs.

Idaho Mental Health Counselors Association is committed to providing relevant and affordable Ethics CE's across the state of Idaho, not only to IMHCA members, but to the larger counseling community. It is our goal to make IMHCA’s Ethics workshops as accessible as possible by offering them twice a year, in the spring and fall, and offering them in as many locations around the state as possible. IMHCA would not be able to fulfill this commitment without our valued volunteers who give of their time and experience to facilitate the ethics workshops, nor those centers and sites that are willing to host.
