Harassment and Discrimination

Professional Boundaries

  • are the "limits that protect the space between the professional’s power and the student/client’s vulnerability."

  • are a matter of context rather than content

  • may apply to the workplace climate as well as the professional/patient relationship

  • apply equally to teachers and learners

  • overlap into personal spheres - you are a professional always

  • are defined by CPSO policies

Unequal power is amplified by trust, emotional dependence, the relinquishment of autonomy and privacy.
