Ethical Boundaries: Ethics and Boundaries and Different

Ethical Boundaries in Recovery Housing > Ethical Boundaries: Ethics and Boundaries and Different

 

Ethics are generally written rules that guide and protect individuals from unacceptable behaviors.

Boundaries are generally not written and may not be the same for everyone. They may change over time. Boundaries could be physical, psychological, emotional and/or social.

BUT boundaries are personal and serve a unique function.

Boundaries provide a therapeutic framework which defines a set of roles.

Boundaries create a foundation for fostering a sense of safety and the belief that the professional, the recovery supporter, will always act in the resident’s best interest.

Boundaries are a distinction between the interactions that would be considered appropriate and those that would be considered inappropriate.
