The Challenge of Ethics in a Healing Relationship
Laura Christensen

As East Asian medicine practitioners, healthy, and impactful relationships with our patients can greatly contribute to the therapeutic success and the professional success of our practice. Healthy healing relationships require understanding the sacred container of the therapeutic relationship.

This goes beyond simply establishing do and don’t boundaries. We need to know how to think and navigate these boundaries.

Goals and Objectives of This Course:

  • The bigger challenges that the ethics of practice opens up
  • What happens when we violate the container of the therapeutic relationship
  • The power differential in the healing relationship
  • The ethical responsibility to ourselves as the practitioner
