Course Reviews

Judy Anderson, LMT, BCTMB

I have been a massage therapist for over 15 years. I have taken many ethics courses. This one, is by far, the best one I have ever taken. It brings together all of the aspects of interacting with people and also yourself. It is the foundation of ethics...the Golden Rule! We have all heard that it is important to keep, but this program breaks it down into why and how to implement it in your entire life, not just as massage therapist.

Lucinda Hinnendael, LMBT

I will pass this book on to my grandson, a sophomore at Boulder, CO. His major is business. I think this book should be used in every business class.

Barbara Swets, LMBT

Really great book with lots of food for thought.

Flormina Lim-Jardon, LMT, BCTMB

Great book to add to my library!

Sonia Christie, LMT, BCTMB

The choice of this book for ethical CE is a gift. I am always involved with religious studies and a lot of times I felt as an outsider in the world. This course not only inspired me in my profession but inspired me to continue my personal growth. I was very impressed to read that there are other business people who follow ethical standards.
