The relationship between a healing arts professional and client is an intimate one. It is part of the healing nature of the therapeutic relationship. We are responsible to clients and to ourselves to behave in an ethical manner and to maintain a high degree of personal integrity.
The topics covered will be contracts, appropriate use of power and influence, scope of practice, confidentiality and sexuality. We will explore such guidelines as staying centered so we can connect more fully, conducting ourselves in a manner that reflects respect, showing humility and admitting limitations – know when to refer, awareness of what we say and how we say it, being generous with time and energy, but knowing how to set boundaries, motivating and inspiring clients to follow through and become responsible for themselves, and acknowledging client’s rights.
