Creating an Internal Ethical Compass:
A Meditative Exploration of Skillful Clinical Boundaries

Most mental health professionals know ethical “rules” but don’t often have an opportunity to ponder more nuanced situations. Ideally mental health professionals set aside our needs in the interest of our clients; however, because therapeutic relationships are intimate human interactions, our personal needs inevitably enter our work. How do we work with the personal needs that are propelling these possible transgressions? How do we discern when we are at risk to cross the line? How do we find the “middle path” between boundaries that may be too rigid or too loose? This workshop is designed to meet the ethics requirements for licensure.

Ethical Compass Learning Objectives:

  • Develop reflective meditation practice and reflect upon its efficacy for self-care and as an ethical safeguard.
  • Identify and reflect upon a current ethical challenge.
  • Develop an internal stance conducive to reflecting upon ethical challenges.
  • Identify specific personal needs that make participants vulnerable to boundary violations.
  • Compare Buddhist ethical precepts with the American Counseling Association Code of Ethics.
