    Dr. Frankle was attention-getting in his manner of presenting the information that we all are suppose to know and carry out. He brought home to me just how vast the ethics spectrum is and how much "gray area" can be manipulated to be "black or white". How scary is that!! I have come away from these presentations with heightened awareness of how things are changing; how social networking can affect us professionally; how much information I have assumed was "confidential" can be disclosed without my knowledge; and, much , much more!! I also think the information necessary for ethical compliance is endless...therefore, I am looking at my "judgment calls" more closely with this new information, committing to consult more in the future. Thanks for the information on physical touch and presenting the issue in the initial session as part of the policies and procedures statement. I agree that conversations of understanding and clarification before the situation arises defines safe boundaries for both therapist and client.
    What a wonderful way to get my CEUs!! All of the speakers were TOPS!!
    Thank you all,

    Wow!! What a treat! So validating to know that I'm not alone in my frustrating situations. I was trained to use evaluation frequently throughout therapy and have found it very helpful for referral or termination or shift in therapy as well as positive recognition for change (sometimes not obvious to T or C). I just wish I could recognize my discomfort as "crisis" earlier. I was so excited to hear you say to find someone to consult with that would focus on "my part" in the relationship problem! So helpful in order not to "blame" the client. Thank you so much for your insight and collaborative approach. You presented a very "artful way" to deal with difficult situations,
    The audio portion sound was awesome and the video trick with "In Treatment" was a real treat...a first for me on line. Thanks for the correction.

    Sorry I missed posting for Session 1. I was out of the office until late Saturday and listened to the recording late. Was logging in to post today but see it is no longer available. I apologize. I will have difficulty listening on the designated day and time but will be listening to the recording. How long will the posting site be available? Thanks for your patience and help.
    The thrilling aspect was around the subject of "collaboration" throughout the discussion! How empowering for the client to be included in decisions about ethics when the issue is about the safety of the client. I believe that the client knows best what make him/her feel safe even if we, as professionals, know healthy boundaries--the "collaborative process" allows for coverage on both ends! Exciting to me.
