Educators’ Code of Ethics
In Pennsylvania, school attendance is compulsory and thus parents are mandated to entrust their children to our education system. It is from this foundation that the duty of teachers to act as a fiduciary in their students’ best interest and to create and maintain a safe environment for their students derives.

Romantic relationships with former clients or their family members would be prohibited… forever. Perhaps the most significant proposed change is in the rules about family therapists engaging in romantic relationships with former clients or their family members. Except for the title of the subprinciple, all emphasis mine:. Sexual intimacy with former clients, their spouses or partners, or individuals who are known to be close relatives, guardians or significant others of clients is likely to be harmful and is therefore prohibited for two years following the termination of therapy or last professional contact.
After the two years following the last professional contact or termination, in an effort to avoid exploiting the trust and dependency of clients, marriage and family therapists should not engage in sexual intimacy with former clients, or their spouses or partners. If therapists engage in sexual intimacy with former clients, or their spouses or partners, more than two years after termination or last professional contact, the burden shifts to the therapist to demonstrate that there has been no exploitation or injury to the former client, or their spouse or partner.
However, a therapist who engages in a sexual relationship with the former client or their partner is always at some level of risk; it is, after all, very hard to prove the negative, especially in mental health.
