REFLECT on the following 3 questions:

1. What is the difference between a boundary-focused approach and a relationally-oriented approach (as per Combs & Freedman) in therapy? 2. Under what conditions would you do the following (by answering these questions, you are starting to self-assess and design “policies” for your practice–some of which you might include in your contract with your client): 

  • Accept gifts from clients? 
  • Barter? 
  • Buy your client’s services or products?
  • Become business partners?

2. Why should a therapist be cautious when self-disclosing?
