This workshop summarizes how to have healthy boundaries with clients, and to utilize your therapeutic presence in an ethical manner. Healthy boundaries are critical for the discernment of ethical and non-ethical feelings, tendencies and behaviors in the treatment room. The skills of full body presence develop or enhance somatic and boundary awareness and the tools necessary to be grounded, and energetically full. This course contains the theoretical framework of how permeable, semi-permeable and rigid boundaries are necessary for dealing ethically with the intimacy of the therapeutic connection in bodywork. All of these skills enable you to establish and maintain ethical professional relationships.
