Social skills for autonomous people: boundary violations in therapy


do you know what particular boundary violations in therapy AREN’T considered unethical? because i am also studying to be a therapist and would very much like to avoid said boundary violations with future clients.

Assuming that just because someone is able to verbalise certain things (for example, answering questions which they have scripted) that they can verbalise what they are feeling, wanting, or needing currently. I have had therapists and others assume that it is a kind of refusal to discuss something when in fact I just didn’t have the ability to communicate it verbally.

This. I think the way therapists act is probably a major contributing reason that a lot of autistic kids cover their disabilities by pretending to be acting out on purpose.
