Ethics: Balanced Professionalism

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.
