The space between the professional’s power and the client’s vulnerability is a definition of boundaries when referring to the setting of counseling. A boundary crossing may be minor and may even be therapeutic, and a boundary crossing may also be referred to as a decision to deviate from the established boundary for a specific purpose. It is an excursion with a return to the established limits of a professional relationship. A boundary crossing becomes a violation when it becomes harmful to the patient/client and may sometimes be difficult to asses if and/or when harm is caused. Several cases will be reviewed, and attendees will take part in deciding if, when and/or when lines have been crossed.
