Boundaries & Ethics – Homelessness 101
September 11, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Maintaining professionalism and healthy personal boundaries are critical if you want to do good work, avoid burnout, and really help empower your clients to achieve their goals. Boundaries & Ethics will address some of the most common ethical challenges you might face when working with people who experience homelessness, and will use real-life scenarios to challenge your thinking about this topic. This is a Homelessness 101 best practices content (click here for more information). This can be a refresher if you took the 101 series in the past or can be a stand alone to talk about situations you may face in the work place. Contact Michele with questions.
