Professional Boundaries Program

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.

The University of California, San Diego School of Medicine is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

The University of California, San Diego School of Medicine designates this educational activity for a maximum of 39.50 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits.  Physicians should only claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
