Ethics: Balanced Professionalism
In this cooperative setting the group will learn to discern appropriate ethical choices as massage therapists. By observing and experiencing through play-acting, the class will ask, “is this a balanced decision?” This ethics course will support creating the template for making “balanced professional choices.”
Through experiential role-play, students will learn:
Skills for assessing a variety of situations that may present in the massage session.
How to speak and set clear boundaries with each and every client through nonviolent communication.
When to refer out to other healthcare professionals when a situation is out of the scope of their practice.
To assess their own needs for self-care by recognizing physical or emotional burn out symptoms.
To assert their own basic rights.
Their professional responsibilities.
