This unique online CE courses saving package on dual relationships (AKA multiple relationships) addresses the complexities of dual relationships in a flexible, ethical, realistic and non-dogmatic way. In contrast to the myth of the depravity of dual relationships, this package illustrates that many types non-sexual dual relationships are unavoidable, ethical and, in fact, can increase the effectiveness of treatment. Such ethical dual relationships can be an integral part of well-formulated treatment plans.
The courses in this saving package feature Dr. Zur’s pioneering work in therapeutic boundaries and dual relationships. The courses clarify that dual relationships are unavoidable in many rural and small communities, such as churches, synagogues, gay and lesbian, military, minority and disabled communities.

The courses in this package outline the stance of different professional codes of ethics on dual relationships, defines and describes the different types of dual relationships and provides detailed ethical decision-making and clinical guidelines for handling dual relationships or multiple relationships ethically. Additional extensive lists resources and references are provided for further study.
