This workshop summarizes how to have healthy boundaries with clients and how 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. This course explores Full Body Presence and 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 to enable you to establish and maintain ethical professional relationships.
