Setting Boundaries in Supervision

Setting professional boundaries in a supervisory role


Managing the boundary between personal feelings and professional requirements can be a complex and confusing challenge. Leaders are tasked with managing their own boundaries with supervisees, as well as modeling and coaching supervisees on maintaining appropriate and effective boundaries with others. This class provides a framework for addressing complex ethical dilemmas that often arise in supervisory situations and will assist supervisors in using a grounded approach to addressing conflicts of interest and boundary issues in the workplace.

Learning Objectives

  • Review boundary concepts and terminology from a leadership perspective

  • Examine biases and reactions when faced with challenging ethical issues

  • Practice using a decision-making framework with strategies for challenging conversations
