#1 Dual Relationships and a Lack of Standards

A therapist shouldn’t work with a patient who is a friend, a friend or relative, or someone else with whom they share a deep personal bond. This makes it harder for the therapist to conduct their work objectively. When a clinician begins to deviate from these criteria, that’s a problem.

A clinician may act unethically if they accept gifts, make an exception for one of their “favorite clients,” share too much information or develop an excessively close relationship with a patient.

Clinicians’ personal standards should be discussed more frequently. When working as a therapist, you should never use drugs or alcohol while you are working, and you should never give therapy if you aren’t emotionally prepared to. Also, always be aware of your needs.
