Setting Boundaries & Ethics - REGISTRATION CLOSED

Presented by Alliance for Living & West Hartford Yoga

The training will provide an overview of the importance of ethical principles, ensuring that client values are clear and respected, while maintaining appropriate boundaries, allowing the case manager to remain empathetic and supportive. Included in this presentation are suggestions on how boundaries are developed, and examples of when boundary crossing occurs. All these areas require that the case managers understand the dynamics of effective communication. The training will conclude with yoga activities: simple breathing and stretching techniques that can be useful as we navigate through our days. Being able to care for yourself when working with people on a daily basis is another tool in helping clients.
