    Correct Answer
    D. D. A staff person talking to a client about the client’s personal problems at home.
    Explanation
    This option would not be considered a boundary violation because it involves a staff person talking to a client about the client's personal problems at home. This type of communication is a common and necessary part of therapy or counseling sessions, where clients are encouraged to discuss their personal issues and seek guidance or support from the staff person. It is an appropriate professional boundary as long as it is done in a confidential and respectful manner.

    Correct Answer
    E. E. All of the above
    Explanation
    All of the above staff factors may put you at risk for a boundary violation. The need to be liked or approved of by clients can lead to crossing professional boundaries in an attempt to gain their approval. The belief that other staff members don't understand or care about the young person as much as you do can lead to overstepping boundaries in an effort to be the sole provider of support. Poor communication with other staff members and supervisors can result in misunderstandings and a lack of accountability for maintaining professional boundaries. Working in a residential setting can present unique challenges in maintaining boundaries due to the close and often prolonged contact with clients.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is E. All of the above. This is because all of the options listed (A, B, C, and D) are indicators of boundary troubles. Having a hard time saying "no" to a client suggests a difficulty in setting personal boundaries. Wanting to save or rescue a client can indicate a lack of professional boundaries. Sharing unnecessarily personal stories with a client crosses the line of appropriate boundaries. Wanting to punish or control a client shows a disregard for boundaries. Therefore, all of these options indicate potential boundary issues.

By engaging in a conversation about why the client is curious, it allows for open communication and understanding.

    • E.

      E. Both A and D

    Correct Answer
    C. C. Explain to the youth that you need personal space when at work, but that you would enjoy talking to her about how she is doing.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is C. It is important to establish boundaries and communicate them in a respectful manner. By explaining to the youth that personal space is needed at work, but also expressing a willingness to talk and listen to her, it shows empathy and understanding while still maintaining appropriate boundaries. Hugging the client excessively or avoiding her completely would not address the issue effectively. Having other staff members hug her to free up time is not a suitable solution either.

    • D.

      D. Ask her to have her uncle call you to make arrangements.

    • E.

      E. None of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. B. Sincerely thank her for the information and thoughtfulness, but let her know that you can’t accept the gift.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is B because it is important to acknowledge and appreciate the client's offer, but also communicate that accepting the free service would not be possible due to financial constraints. This response maintains politeness and gratitude while also asserting personal boundaries and limitations.

    1.  A young person is very agitated because she has not had a cigarette in two hours.  She knows you smoke and asks you for one.  What do you do?

    • A.

      A. Explain to the client that smoking is bad.

    • B.

      B. Give the client a cigarette, but make sure she knows you can only do this once.

    • C.

    • D.

      D. Make sure staff are aware of the youth’s struggle so they can be supportive as well.

    • E.

      E. Both C and D

    Correct Answer
    E. E. Both C and D
    Explanation
    In this scenario, the most appropriate response would be to both let the young person know that you cannot give her a cigarette and try to help her through the difficult time (option C), as well as make sure staff are aware of the youth's struggle so they can be supportive as well (option D). By not giving the client a cigarette, you are not enabling or encouraging her smoking habit. Instead, you are acknowledging her struggle and offering support. Additionally, involving staff ensures that the young person has a support system in place to help her through this difficult time.
