This programme is designed to provide an overview of boundaries and the many ways in
which they can be encountered and managed. There is a strong emphasis on practical
examples of boundary issues throughout the programme and there will be examples of best
practice in relation to boundaries offered throughout the training. The programme is highly

to underpin and strengthen their existing knowledge around boundaries. Above all this
programme is a practical application of relevant theory and practice in relation to
