Ethics: Touching from the Heart

with Julia Corley, LPC-A, NCC, LMBT, SEP, Certifed Hakomi Teacher

Saturday, September 28th, 2019| 9:30 AM — 5:30 PM
7 CE’s | $150
Mebane, NC
Organized by Integrity Trainings

In this highly experiential workshop we will explore the ethics of a skillfully attended therapeutic relationship and the refinement of therapeutic presence and communication with clients. Genuine, heart-felt connection and an attitude of non-violence are hallmarks of attuned practice. The aim is to cultivate relational skills that will distinguish you as an exceptional massage provider.

Massage therapy is often delivered with subtle violence, a pushing of the therapist’s agenda, of what they think the client needs over what is organically unfolding in the client’s experience. We will discuss ethical touch, use memories of unskillful touch in service of cultivating more ethical practice, and apply specific verbal and non-verbal therapeutic attitudes and communication skills to be in collaboration with clients to give them more exceptional care. The day will be highly personal and experiential, and you will learn skills that can be immediately applied with your clientele.

Using a variety of activities, we will:

  • Define ethics as it relates to non-violence
  • Use heart as a resource when interacting with clients
  • Examine past experiences as touchstones for knowing what not to do in a session
  • Experiment with non-violent client/therapist relationship via therapist attitude
  • Implement refined tracking & professional communication skills
  • Discern when to use mindful pausing to gain information about how to proceed in a session

Customized Workshops and Retreats

I’d love to offer a workshop or retreat for you and yours.

What do you want to explore, nurture, let go of, celebrate, mourn, or punctuate?
Let’s create a sacred space for what has heart and meaning now.

My facilitation is grounded in years of personal and professional healing practice; my style is relaxed, loving, and spacious. I believe in having our time together be mostly experiential, so you don’t just hear about the subject matter, you feel it.

I can custom design something for you, or we can co-create it together. If you can gather a group of ten or more and cover my fee and travel expenses, I’d be happy to come to you wherever you are.
