Professional Development

Professional and Personal Boundaries — When Working within your Community

Are you a CALD front-line employee working with people from your community? If you are, this workshop is for YOU!

The Workshop will explore physical, mental, and emotional personal boundaries. Healthy professional and personal boundaries are essential to ensure that you and your clients are safe and respected. However, when you work within the same community and share the same culture as your clients, boundaries can become blurred quite easily. The compassionate and nurturing qualities which workers bring to community services tend to make them vulnerable to blurring these boundaries, along with fatigue. When exploring boundaries in the workplace, you will look at clear boundaries, boundary crossings and boundary violations. When exploring boundary crossings and boundary violations, we will discuss warning signs and preventative measures to keep you and your clients safe.

 Learning Outcomes:

  • Recognise boundary issues in your own professional and personal lives.
  • Develop strategies to respond to boundary issues.
  • Gain awareness of the importance of professional identities and reputation.
  • Acknowledge and recognise your own boundary limits & explore effects of gossips.

LEad Many Countries, One Water by Chris Tobin
Artwork by Chris Tobin, commissioned by LEAD to create an original piece of art that reflects who we are and what we do. Titled “Many Countries, One Water”, the artwork represents the diversity and the connectedness across the communities in which we work. Reproduced with permission and gratitude.


LEAD acknowledges the traditional custodians of the land we gather and work on, and the land that you are on while visiting our website. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging, for they hold the memories, the traditions, the cultures and hopes of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples across the nation. A better understanding and respect for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures develops an enriched appreciation for Australia’s cultural heritage and can lead to reconciliation. This is essential to the maturity of Australia as a nation and fundamental to the development of an Australian identity. Understanding and respect are guiding principles of LEAD’s Reconciliation Action Plan.
