It's not so lonely on the stairs now: Linking the personal, the professional and the psychodramatic technique of doubling in professional boundary training

This paper focuses on three ways in which my personal development journey has informed my work delivering individual and group training regarding the transgression of professional boundaries by health clinicians. The first aspect is the link between the experience of boundary violation in childhood and the motivation to work as a professional boundary trainer. The second element is the link between the experience of isolation as a result of childhood boundary violation, and my valuing of the psychodramatic technique of doubling in professional boundary training to enrich clinicians’ understandings of themselves and their transgressions. The third thread encompasses the significance of psychodrama in helping me to integrate the personal and the professional, and thus conduct meaningful professional boundary training.
