Professional Boundaries in Social Care and Health

Professional boundaries training is not considered mandatory so why support your workforce to access it?

Working in social care and health involves having access to lots of personal information and intimate knowledge about adults receiving support. When workers know their boundaries they can develop appropriate relationships based on trust and respect. If workers are clear about their boundaries they are able to provide a consistent support across teams. In addition, people using services are clear about the workers role and are not damaged by that relationship. Workers who deal with difficult or challenging scenarios need to understand their professional boundaries in order to keep themselves safe emotionally in order to support the person they are working with.
