Course Description

Practitioners don’t often discuss gifts for therapy clients, but does that mean you should give something special to your clients or accept anything from them?  Even though most therapists have regularly received gifts from clients, the idea of gifts in therapy has received minimal attention in ethical guidelines and literature.  One reason may be that therapists are reluctant to openly talk
about it for fear of being accused of some sort of boundary violation or of exploiting their clients.  For similar reasons, some therapists are even less willing to discuss the gifts they give to clients.

This course, then, seeks to address common concerns and misconceptions about giving and receiving gifts in the therapeutic environment, as well as:

  • to facilitate open discussion of gift-giving among therapists and clients,
  • describe various types of gifts given in therapy,
  • articulate clinical and ethical issues relating to gift-giving,
  • emphasize possible cultural and context-related factors of gift-giving,
  • and provide psychotherapists with basic guidelines for giving and receiving gifts in psychotherapy.

Key concepts covered include:

  • Client/Practitioner Relationships
  • Confidentiality
  • Boundaries
  • Research
  • Ethics

Course Description

Never before taught, we actually had to write the book for this one (Available on Amazon).  Yes, it’s a bit dry, but this is an ethics course from the perspective of the Reiki practitioner AND the client. In this course you will look at the ramifications of unethical behavior as an energyworker, as well as discuss the positive aspects of being an ethical practitioner. This course is offered to Reiki professionals, Massage Therapists, and even clients of either industry who want to know more about what to expect from their practitioners.  This ethics course presumes some common sense knowledge and will require some writing.

  • Client/Practitioner Relationships
  • Confidentiality
  • Boundaries
