Video Course: Maintaining Sexual Ethics: Part 4-Protecting Students

Anne Williams

We’ve seen the headlines. We know that sexual misconduct and sexual assault are happening in the massage profession and on postsecondary campuses. Based on the national statistics, which are alarming, you can bet that someone on your campus is behaving in a way that is sexually inappropriate, harassing, or even violent. In this course, we examine best practices for promoting sexual ethics on campus. We define terms, talk about legality, outline sound policies, describe informal and formal complaint procedures, and develop ways to educate students, faculty, and staff. Our goal is clear: a safe school environment and a safer massage profession.

This course is the fourth in a series of four courses.
