Boundary Considerations Between Doctoral Students and Master’s Students
Counselor educators have a responsibility to teach students about boundary issues and multiple relationships. In addition to counselor-client concerns, there has been increased attention to faculty-student multiple relationships. Like faculty, doctoral students in counselor education programs often engage in roles with master’s-level students in which they hold a position of authority. This article reviews the professional literature on multiple relationships and boundary issues within counselor preparation programs and applies the research to boundary considerations between graduate students. Potentially fruitful areas for research are also suggested.
