      Abstract

      The ethical principles relative to nonsexual boundary issues derive from the first principle of respect for the dignity of the patient. Using a case vignette, the authors have explored the mutual derivation and inter-relations of these principles, with clinical approaches to patient care. Clinicians should be aware of the ethical underpinnings of sound therapeutic techniques that manifest respect for the patient.
