    Professionalism, Boundaries and the Workplace is a practical text that examines a range of sensitive issues concerned with managing and maintaining professional boundaries between worker and client. It uses experiences from probation, social work, the NHS, small business and church settings. A number of issues are addressed including:
    *the relationship between personal and professional values
    *changing professional-client relationships
    *definitions of 'being professional'
    *conflicts arising from different understandings of professionalism.
