Professional Boundaries Workshop

Understanding Professional Boundaries: Working Sustainably & Ethically with Clients in Contemporary Dietetic Practice 

About the Workshop

The scope of Dietetics is changing as the profession becomes more engaged in looking beyond the science of nutrition to work motivationally & behaviourally with clients. The role of professional boundaries (PBs) in assuring quality care, are becoming more important than ever in this evolving workplace.
This workshop will facilitate the exploration of a variety of issues that can challenge a Dietitian’s PBs when working with clients experiencing complex issues in contemporary practice such as disordered eating, poor mental health and chronic multimorbidity. These challenges can include:
•session time management
•out of hours contacts
•social media
•dual relationships
•assisting highly distressed or seriously ill clients
•being mindful of the line between eating behaviour counselling and more broadly focused therapy.
Through discussion, case review, reflection & demonstration, this workshop aims to invite attendees to become more aware of their responsibility in containing complex work effectively whilst managing their own self-care and burn out risk. The role of reflective practice & supervision will be explored to maintain safety and integration of learning post w’shop.
Workshop registration includes workbook, CPD quiz and delicious catering.

  • ‘The group discussions were very good and enabled us to check in with others on how they do things. We rarely get a chance to do that in practice, and it was tremendously helpful to see how others would do things and why’.
