Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This special issue focuses on sexual boundary violations. Our intent is clear: We want to promote discussion and clarification on this topic. Underlying this special issue is the belief that a study of sexual boundary violations can potentially avert reenactments. As we are all potentially vulnerable to boundary transgressions, including sexual ones, such study is essential. In this first overview article, we present a brief summary of some of the major topics relevant to sexual boundary violations as well as an overview of the articles included in this special issue on sexual boundary violations.
