Ethics in Therapeutic Presence


Course Description

Healthy boundaries are critical for any bodywork practice. They allow individuals to identify the line between ethical and non-ethical feelings, tendencies and behaviors in the treatment room and help us to create an environment where establish and maintain ethical professional relationships can be maintained.

This course looks at the skill of "full body presence" as a way to develop and enhance boundary awareness and as a way to help clinicians feel more grounded and energetically full. Participants explore the full theoretical spectrum from permeable to semi-permeable to rigid boundaries and what is necessary for dealing ethically with the intimacy of the therapeutic connection that's intrinsic to bodywork.
