Live Virtual Ethics Course for AMTA Michigan Members only. Presented by Ruth Werner

About this event

This class addresses the delicate art of communicating professionally and with open hearts when we have concerns about our clients’ well-being. Key topics include medications that may influence bodywork choices; visual or palpatory signs that are red flags; and maintaining boundaries for client safety (how to say “no” when your client says “yes”).

Basic principles of active listening are reviewed and employed as students break into small groups to role-play a variety of difficult client-therapist conversations, all based on real-life situations provided by past participants.

This course meets the Michigan LMT requirement of at least 2 CEs Professional Ethics or Boundaries
