The Great Lakes MHTTC is offering this training for individuals working in HHS Region 5: IL, IN, MI, MN, OH, WI. This training is being provided in response to a need identified by Region 5 stakeholders.




Successful outcomes largely depend upon the quality of interpersonal relationships with people receiving services. Workers must maintain a balance between being supportive, empathic, and understanding, yet professional at the same time. This training explores the nature of boundary issues at work by looking at the five different risk areas for most staff, offering tips and best practices for reducing the risk of boundary problems in the workplace.




  • Review boundary concepts and terminology
  • Examine ethical considerations with examples
  • Introduce a decision-making process
  • Adopt personal and professional interventions




Registrants who fully attend this event or training will be eligible to receive 2.0 continuing education hours provided by the Minnesota Board of Social Work and the Minnesota Board of Behavioral Health and Therapy. Certificates are disseminated by People Incorporated to all qualifying individuals after the conclusion of the event or training.
