This case discusses boundaries and confidentiality. Keeping that boundary and doing no harm when the lives of clients overlap, and the communities of the therapist and the client lead to unavoidable multiple roles, constitute the key ethical issues in this case. The chapter presents a discussion of the key ethical issues, a summary of the primary ethical conundrums prevalent in the work setting, and a final reflection in retrospect regarding how the ethical quandary was handled.
