Boundary crossings and dual relationships are some of the most common ethical issues faced by human service professionals. What steps do you plan to take in your practice to minimize difficulties arising from these issues?

Choose one of the five scenarios listed on pages 1 and 2 of your textbook, Boundary Issues and Dual Relationships in the Human Services, and discuss how you would handle the situation in a manner consistent with the NOHS Ethical Standards for Human Services Professionals. Contrast that with behavior that would be incongruent with the values and ethics of the profession. Be specific in your response.
