Using case studies, lectures, and discussion, in this webinar we will define boundaries and their role in professional practice. Using a trauma-informed lens, we will discuss factors that complicate setting and maintaining healthy boundaries, including those that support and detract from such efforts. Strategies to support healthy boundaries between library workers and patrons will be presented and explored.
