Stalking, Threats and Harrassment by our Clients
|Format||Study Group Network|
|Presenters||Dr Lisa Warren|
|Description||During the course of our work we frequently come into contact with the lonely, the disordered and the disenfranchised. Although many are clear on the boundaries of their interactions with clinicians, there is growing evidence that healthcare professionals are at heightened risk of being stalked, threatened or otherwise harassed by the people who seek their services.
This workshop provides an opportunity to learn about the mounting research on the situations where clients have harassed their healthcare professionals. The workshop will provide a range of practical solutions to:
1) minimise the risk of being harassed by clients,
2) respond when clients choose to harass, and
3) balance the ongoing clinical needs of the client with the need for practice safety.
Workshop participants will learn about the experiences of psychologists and other healthcare professionals across the world as well as having the opportunity to evaluate their own policies for managing themselves, their colleagues and students, and their ancillary staff.
