"This book does not offer simple answers but, rather, examines the nature of boundaries in psychotherapy and helps readers view boundaries through both an ethical and a clinical lens. Readers will learn a decision-making process to help them think through when to cross and when not to cross a boundary. Examples of real-world situations are provided to aid therapists as they think critically about what is most appropriate and most helpful to their clients' well-being. Clinicians, trainers, supervisors, instructors, students, ethicists, licensing boards, administrators, and attorneys will appreciate this thoughtful orientation to the many different boundaries that surround and protect psychotherapists and their clients."--BOOK JACKET.
