The boundaries of the therapeutic relationship are a crucial part of effective therapy. But understanding them, and the effects of power and responsibility, can be intimidating to trainee or newly-qualified therapists. This book will take step by step through everything they need to know to work ethically and safeguard the wellbeing of both themselves and their clients.

It tackles:

* contracting and the importance of negotiating and clarifying boundaries with clients;

*the implications and limits of maintaining confidentiality;

* keeping clear sexual boundaries, and how to work around issues safely and appropriately;

* what happens when circumstances change, and everyday or serious disruptions occur to therapy;

* the nature of the therapist's power, and how to employ it responsibly to a client's benefit.

Packed with case studies, ethical dilemmas and points for reflection and discussion, this is an essential read for trainee practitioners and qualified therapists looking to ensure safe and ethical practice.
