                                                                                                     Do all professionals and volunteers who work with youth understand                                                                                                                   ethical and professional boundaries?

                                                                                                     These and other questions are key to understanding Better Boundaries                                                                                                           when working with traumatized, abused and neglected youth.

                                                                                                     Crossing ethical and professional boundaries can have a devastating                                                                                                           impact on youth and their families. When professionals' cross              boundaries even unintentionally, the youth-serving organization can expect loss after loss: loss of client and family trust, loss of staff, loss of time in dealing with the aftermath, and possible loss of funding.
