The keynote speakers will be Dr. Christine Courtois and Carrie T. Ishee, LPCC and the discussant will be our own Dr. Richard Waugaman. In keeping with Dr. Courtois’ new book, Sexual Boundary Violations in Psychotherapy, she will be exploring various ethical considerations associated with sexual boundary transgressions made by therapists.
The #MeToo movement, documenting sexual violations across many professional and occupational settings, makes clear that such events are alarmingly common. The psychotherapy setting is not the exception. In fact, the nature of psychotherapeutic work may contribute to vulnerabilities given the powerful and intimate emotions engendered and the transference and countertransference responses that are relationally stimulated. Clinicians who treat the victimized client in subsequent therapy and those who treat or supervise the offending therapist face special challenges and require specialized knowledge.
