Should social workers ever disclose personal information to clients or hire former clients? How should social workers respond to gifts and social invitations from clients, or handle unexpected encounters with clients in the local community? This workshop will provide participants with a comprehensive overview of boundary issues and dual relationships that arise in various human service settings.
