Boundaries in psychotherapy refer to issues of self-disclosure, physical touch, gifts, bartering, physical touch, various forms of dual relationships, activities outside the office (home or hospital visits, attending clients’ weddings, adventure therapy, etc.), incidental encounters in the community, and social and other non-therapeutic contacts.

This is a unique certificate and is, most probably, the most extensive online continuing education program (total of 14 courses and 58 CE Credits) available on Boundaries in Psychotherapy. It covers areas, such as the general definition, scope, standard of care, and code of ethics regarding boundaries in psychotherapy and counseling and provides detailed discussions and guidelines for relevant codes of ethics on boundaries, such as dual relationships, gifts, touch, bartering, self-disclosure, home office and home visits. In addition, the package includes courses on risk management and power in psychotherapy.

You can take this extensive program over a period of 3 years and spread it over 3 license renewal periods. Upon completion of the courses in the certificate program, you will receive, via email, a final certificate of completion for your course of study suitable for framing. You will receive individual course certificates upon completion of each course.
