  1. The ethics of non-sexual dual relationships : A dilemma for the rural mental health professional.

    Article - En anglais

    This paper reviews some of the issues that affect the rural mental health professional who wishes to maintain an ethical position with respect to non-sexual dual relationships.

    Although the ethical codes of professional regulating bodies provide general guidelines for professional conduct, they do not offer specific guidance for practical decision-making.

    Furthermore, there appear to be some contrasting opinions between the various ethical codes with respect to what would be considered unethical behavior in a non-sexual dual relationship.

    Alternative decision making models that may be of help to a rural practitioner for assessing the ethics of such a relationship are reviewed.
