Ethics and Boundaries

Ethics and Boundaries:
Hospice and End of Life Care

Workshop Description:

Professionals often develop close therapeutic relationships with clients, patients and families as they journey toward death. During this process, you may develop challenging ethical issue and boundary-related dilemmas. We will examine the challenges you encounter with end of life care, advanced care planning, palliative care and hospice related issues through experiential learning activities, interactive dialogue and applied-practice exercises. Ethical issues and boundary related dilemmas will be identified and an ethical decision-making model will be used to assess situations and determine appropriate courses of action that are grounded in the Code of Ethics and Code of Conduct.

Strengthening Cultural Competency

The ability to think, assess and engage in ways that respect the diversity of individuals and groups we serve while maintaining competent/working ethical boundaries will be the focus of this workshop. We will examine our biases, while seeking and sharing knowledge, experience and skills to better understand our clients.

This experiential ethics and boundaries training will include interactive dialogue, focused discussion and applied practice exercises as we explore the opportunity for culturally relative practice on both the micro and macro-levels that we encounter in our work.

Hoarding: An Integrated Approach


Discovering Treatment Strategies to Help Combat the Behavior


A workshop designed for social workers, professional counselors, marriage and family therapists, clergy, pastoral ministers, chaplains, caregivers, educators, community outreach agencies and health and human services professionals.

Workshop Description:

Hoarding has received increased media attention in recent years, resulting in greater recognition of the problem and more clients seeking service for the disorder. The new DSM-5 has revised its previous stance of listing it as a symptom under OCD to creating its own diagnostic category of hoarding disorder.

These changes impel us as professionals to move beyond the stereotypes to a clearer understanding of the disorder. What are its symptoms and triggers? What is fact vs. fiction about the demographics? What struggles are faced by the client and concerned others? How does one intervene and what strategies most successfully treat? What are the ethical and boundary challenges? Professionals will gain practical strategies and innovative approaches to enhance their work and ministry to those impacted and overwhelmed by hoarding.

Learning Objectives:
The workshop seeks to assist and develop participants in the following areas:
