The Educated Heart: Ethics, Roles & Boundaries for Massage Therapists

Based on The Educated Heart by Nina McIntosh, this class picks up where most other Ethics classes drop the ball. While most Ethics classes tend to focus on the boundaries of the client—and those will of course be discussed—the boundaries of the therapist are just as important. Careful maintenance of your own boundaries is often the difference in being truly prosperous and successful and just getting by. Please feel free to bring your own ethical dilemmas to the table as there will be plenty of opportunity to examine your unique situations anonymously in the interactive Q&A period.
