When the Professional and Personal Overlap: Providing Care within your Own Community
This workshop will aim to discuss the experiences of providers who are working with clients/patients who share similar backgrounds and identities. Ethical considerations, maintaining boundaries, and managing transference and countertransference will all be explored. Ways to minimize the prospective negative outcomes of dual relationships, as well as benefits and opportunities that can exist when providers and patients share identities will also be examined. This workshop looks to discuss, share, support and manage these feelings in order to provide the best care to patients with minimal harm, and to protect a provider's professional career as well as allow them the freedom to participate in their own communities and express their personal identities. This workshop incorporates mental health, health disparities, minority populations, cultural competence, provider challenges, social justice, ethics, and direct practice.
