Practitioners are faced with many unique challenges in the mental health and alcohol and other drug sector. They work with complex presentations and hear personal histories that invariably impact on the practitioner’s own wellbeing. Balancing personal wellbeing with effective treatment can be a significant challenge.
This ATDC MEMBERS ONLY workshop introduces strategies to identify, monitor and address these challenges, as well as an overview of some boundary related issues which can occur when working with these clients.
