The Ethics Code seeks to avoid harm and protect autonomy, informed by solid clinical thinking and good research. Stephen Behnke APA Ethics Director December 2004, Vol 35, No.

Permanently prohibiting involvement may compromise the client's exercise of autonomy in determining with whom, and how, to be involved in personal relationships.
