Ethics and Boundaries

Ethics and Boundaries:
Strengthening Cultural Competency

Workshop Description:

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. We will look at ethical dilemmas through a lens of diverse human conditions, while exploring decision making in ways to best protect client’s rights while minimizing risk to professionals.

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:
