Maintaining Boundaries (contributed by Kara Piper)  

There are fine lines while being a Peer Leader that we need to be aware of.  We are qualified to be a peer and are not trained as anything more.   You may be presented with situations that you are not trained to handle, and that is okay.  We are here as a peer to help steer students in the right direction whenever they may need it.  Or we can give them advice on certain subjects if they ask for it.  We are not here to be their counselor, therapist, or anything else above what we are qualified to do. However as a peer leader we can guide them in the right direction as to who they should talk to so they may seek help (i.e. send them to Health Services or the Counseling and Wellness Center).
