BOUNDARY ISSUES

n. in therapy and health care, refers to ethical issues which surround the relationship between a therapist and a patient. Ideally, boundaries set limits not only on their areas for discussion but also on their physical distance. A boundary sees to it that issues on trust and vulnerability are not violated.

BOUNDARY ISSUES: "In a therapist-patient relationship, boundary issues arise when either or both parties cross the line from professional to personal."
