Professional Boundaries Program

Professional Boundaries

The Professional Boundaries Program is a dynamic, interactive three-day educational training program facilitated by a minimum of two physicians board-certified in psychiatry.

The program objective is to assist the professional in addressing the issues that contribute to their misconduct in the workplace. Additional goals and objectives include:

  • Developing a greater understanding of the multiple issues and factors that lead to sexual harassment and sexual misconduct in the workplace.
  • Increasing knowledge and understanding of the impact of sexual harassment and sexual misconduct on victims and the work environment.
  • Increasing insight into personal attitudes and paradigms about work, power, self-esteem, gender and cultural factors, and issues of sexuality.
  • Values and boundary clarification.
  • Improving coping skills.
  • Providing tools for appropriate workplace behaviors.

PACE has developed this program to meet the needs of the professional who:

  • Has had a complaint or grievance filed against him/her for sexual harassment and/or misconduct in the work place.
  • Is at risk of losing their job, practice, privileges, or license due to allegations of sexual misconduct, or creating a hostile work environment.
  • Is on probation or suspension while under investigation.
  • Needs to meet court, state board, or employer recommendations for sexual harassment/misconduct prevention training.

PACE provides a dynamic training program that offers professionals an opportunity to obtain educational information and personalized assessment in a highly sensitive, supportive and confidential environment away from the workplace.
