An understanding of ethics is one of the most important pieces of knowledge a practitioner of the healing arts can possibly have. Whether you’re a medical or psychology professional, a coach, or an alternative medicine practitioner, understanding the ethical dimensions of healing is vital to professional success.
Ethical principles are not restrictive rules and regulations – they are maps for bringing out your best as a caregiver and healer. They guide you toward healthy boundaries, self-care, appropriate relationships with clients, and effective communication with other professionals in the healthcare field.
Healing work isn't just about what happens in the therapeutic encounter, but also about how you communicate and act with integrity in your professional and personal relationships. While there are hundreds of energy healing modalities, and thousands of practitioners train in them each year, the field has been handicapped by a lack of articulated and standardized ethical guidelines for practitioners. The Energy Healer’s Ethics Course addresses this need.
In the course you’ll identify your “scope of practice” and what you can and cannot do as an energy healing professional. If you’re a licensed mental health counselor, or a medical practitioner, you’ll learn how your energy healing credentials interface with the requirements of your primary care license. If you’re a coach or trained energy healer, you’ll learn how to interact with nurses, doctors, psychiatrists, psychotherapists, other professionals, and the healthcare system.
You’ll also discover how governments and regulatory agencies view the field of complementary medicine (CAM), and the terms and language you must use on your web site, in your marketing, with clients, and with fellow professionals in order to maintain the highest ethical standards and avoid triggering regulatory reviews.
Once you’re familiar with the many issues involved in professional ethics, you’ll become comfortable navigating this tricky terrain. You’ll find ethical issues coming up repeatedly as you practice your skills with others. You’ll be so glad you’ve prepared yourself in advance, by completing this Energy Healer’s Ethics Course.
