NPA Spring Conference - Boundaries, Borders and Multiplicities in Psychotherapy: Ethics and Professionalism for Nebraska Psychologists

Presented by Stephen H. Behnke, JD, PhD, MDiv, APA Director of Ethics, this vignette-based program will explore ethical and professional aspects of boundaries and borders within the psychotherapeutic context. The program will review standards in the APA Ethics Code that are relevant to boundaries and borders in psychotherapy, and then will explore why these concepts are so deeply embedded in our ethical understanding of the psychotherapeutic process. This exploration will address how borders and boundaries take shape in a relational context where multiple dimensions of self-identity are at play, such as age, gender, gender identity, race, sexual orientation, disability and religion.The program will distinguish ethical issues from professional issues, and will press to understand the difference between these two categories.

The program will offer a model for ethical decision making, and provide a series of practice-oriented vignettes for discussion. The values underpinning the APA Ethics code will be stressed throughout the program and will be a point of special emphasis in discussing the vignettes. The program will stress that the APA Ethics Code may be a used as a guide in ethical decision making, and is more than simply a set of prohibitions and obligations.
