This ethics program will provide you with a structure for ethical decision-making that will serve your clients, yourself, your profession and your community. State licensing boards and professional associations set forth professional codes of ethics to define standards of professional conduct that ensure the highest good for the client in our therapeutic relationships. The first step in practicing ethically is to become aware of these established regulations and to implement them within your professional practice.
Ethics within the health care profession is concerned with the establishment and maintenance of moral relationships between those individuals coming in for treatment, on the one hand, and the professional therapists rendering treatment, on the other. Together our personal and professional codes of ethics form the basis for our standards of ethical decision-making and resulting conduct.

This course is a great refresher on the topic of The Ethics of Therapeutic Relationships. I was happy to see how much of the course material is already deeply integrated into my work as a professional massage therapist of 20 years. With that, there was some good food for thought, new awareness and new perspectives acquired from the course. I am grateful for the regularly required professional ethics continuing education courses to help me adhere to the highest level of professionalism in my work as a healing artist.

I really enjoy your courses, it is so easy to pick up the course and study without having to be on top of the computer. I always gain great information! The courses are very good. I would highly recommend them to anyone. And the neatest thing is I can take them with me to camp or when I'm babysitting my grandkids...
