Working Where Everyone Knows Your Name: Risks and Rewards of Rural Relationships

Monday, July 15th
2:00 PM - 3:30 PM
Grapevine 4-6

In rural areas, prevention professionals often live and work in the communities that they serve resulting in unique challenges to ethical boundaries. Moreover, youth not only test boundaries but may lack appropriate boundaries. Consequently, rural workers must engage professional judgment when navigating overlapping connections and complex issues that are a reality of life and work in rural communities. This interactive session explores ethical practices, boundary development and boundary crossing along with suggestions to minimize the risks of dual relationships.

At the end of the training session, the participants will be able to: 

1. Identify ethical concerns of dual relationships.
2. Identify risks that might lead to crossing boundaries.
3. Understand strategies to manage dual relationships.

All presentations that have been made available to CADCA have been posted at this time.

Sessions without presentations were not made available to CADCA to share.

As a reminder, the password to access the presentations has emailed to participants and is also available on your Program Cover.
