Ethical Boundaries: Standards of Ethical Practice and Professional Conduct

Ethical Boundaries in Recovery Housing > Ethical Boundaries: Standards of Ethical Practice and Professional Conduct

 

Ohio Law and Professional Rules clearly states that counselors, social workers, and therapists shall not engage in sexual activity with the person they are helping. There are clear disciplinary actions that can be taken against the Counselor, social worker, or therapist when this happens.

This is just one example of the many Standards of ethical practice and professional conduct.

  • Shall not engage in sexual activities or sexual contact.
  • Shall not engage in sexual intimacies with former clients within a minimum of five years after terminating the therapeutic relationship.
  • A personal relationship has the potential to be harmful to the client and may make it difficult for the counselor, social worker or marriage and family therapist to maintain appropriate professional boundaries.
