Standards for Maintaining Professional Boundaries and Preventing Sexual Abuse

Standard A5: Treating Family or Friends
Certain situations create the need for extra vigilance in the maintenance of boundaries.
Any romantic/sexual relationship with a client, including a spouse, is always considered sexual abuse under the RHPA. Even if the individuals involved consent to the relationship it is still considered sexual abuse within the meaning of the RHPA. Currently, there is no RHPA exception for RMTs to treat spouses.

Standard B3: Post-Termination Relationships
Ending the therapist-client relationship does not eliminate the power imbalance that exists between registrant and client. This is because there may be continuing trust, knowledge, or influence derived from the previous professional relationship. For this reason, the RHPA will soon require a mandatory waiting period prior to ending the professional relationship and commencing a romantic or sexual relationship with a former client. In some cases, a romantic or sexual relationship is never appropriate.
