"It was a good overview of how to manage and prevent boundary crossing so they don’t become issues." - Tara, LCSW

"This presentation and presenter not only taught she reminded mental health providers the importance of being genuine and modeling Often complicated situations Ethics in managing a wide range of boundary examples, she was skilled in modeling and reminding providers the importance of being genuine, but nonjudgmental acceptance are also valuable when discussing a wide array of boundary issues across environments. I appreciated learning through her professional experiences vs. theory. Not intended, but her talk helped me move through some COVID compassion fatigue. Her verbal and non-verbal expressions reminded me of my joy and pride in the Social Work profession." - Jayne, LCSW
