This session will explore dual professional relationships, complicated relationships, personal bias and reflection, and how to recognize and mitigate signs of burnout. It will also address the people (colleagues, supervisees, mentees) who are negatively affected by this slippery behavior, and teach skills to engage in an accountability conversation, or make the decision to leave the professional relationship.

Learning Objectives:
  • Identify specific professional roles counselors participate in beyond their work with clients 
  • Learn how biases impact professional behavior for counselors outside the session 
  • Consider whether certain behaviors and actions are professionally appropriate or inappropriate 
  • Discuss what contexts beyond work with clients being a counselor matters
