Blurred Boundaries

Review the Summers text, pp. 136–138. (Use in-text citations and references)

 Choose two hypothetical practice situations under “Blurred Boundaries?” You will respond with your two chosen situations and identify what went wrong with the worker-client boundaries AND what needs to happen to correct the situation. Now, imagine that the client was from a culture, background, ethnicity or country very different from your own. Think about how you might respond differently.

Post the number associated with your chosen situation and a brief description. Then answer the following questions: What went wrong with the worker-client boundaries? How might you respond differently (if at all) if the client was from a culture, background, ethnicity or country very different from your own?Please be specific and support your conclusions by citing the course resources AND at least ONE peer-reviewed resource (i.e., journal article, professional organization website, etc.).
