Video Course: Crossing the Client-Therapist Boundary

Cherie Sohnen-Moe

Even though most massage professionals maintain high ethical standards, ethical violations in the massage profession do occur, and boundaries are often inadvertently crossed, putting both therapists and clients at risk. That’s why it’s vital that we examine the role of boundaries in the client-therapist relationship. In this ethics course, you’ll discover common areas where boundary crossings occur, and will learn to bring more awareness to your professional relationship and develop strategies for effective boundaries for healthy therapeutic relationships.
