Discussion topic should be at least 350 words and should reflect the fact that you have completed the readings and activities. Use your words wisely so that the posting has substance and includes examples and explanations. Best practice is to include citations and a reference list.

It is not difficult to imagine that intimate relationships with clients can have a detrimental impact both on the helping relationship and on the client. In this discussion you will take the opportunity to analyze the impact of such relationships and their effects on all parties involved, including the human services practitioner.

Select one of the cases discussed in Chapter 2 in your text Boundary Issues and Dual Relationships in the Human Services. Please choose a different case than your classmates have chosen. Use the internet and the Library to research the potential emotional, psychological, and social impacts on the client of such a relationship.

Begin your response by identifying the scenario you have chosen to analyze, then report on the results of your research, of the likely and potential impacts on the client and the helping relationship of such an interaction. Research similar scenarios in the state in which you live and discuss how such a situation might be handled if it occurred in your state.

Finally, discuss risk management practices you may use to avoid such relationships in your own practice.

In the Reading, you will examine how intimate and social relationships can occur in interactions with human services clients and how they impact the helping relationship. Chapter 2 in your text, Boundary Issues and Dual Relationships in the Human Services, will cover the issue of intimate relationships with clients. In Chapter 3, you will also discover that relationships in which the helping professional’s emotional and dependency needs are being met can impact the helping relationship in a negative manner.

Super fast turn around time. Very impressed and will use Studypool again if I need a quick job. Communication was a bit tough but not unbearable.
