The Ethics of Touch

April 21, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm


Working with boundaries is imperative for any health professional who touches their clients. It is our responsibility to be aware of the trauma or transference that may come up while either negotiating the work to be done with the client, or while the client is actually on the table. A good self awareness, and ability to be both cognizant of ourselves and of the subtle cues of the client, beyond both verbal and written consent, is helpful in negotiating healthy boundaries and a clear professional relationship in today’s highly charged society. Many unclear messages and social conditionings can mask a client’s real feelings and ability to give true information and consent in a setting where there is a clear power differential between therapist and client. This course offers a chance for professionals to discuss, learn about, and explore their own physical, emotional and mental responses, which in turn allows the therapist to hear and honour a client’s whole self in treatment This seminar/ workshop will run for 4 hours and is worth 2 primary CEU’s with MTANS
