This new course from Ben Benjamin entitled “Ethics: Preventing Sexual Misconduct in Massage Therapy” addresses a critical topic in our profession. Viewers will learn the definition and history of sexual abuse, how to maintain sexual boundaries in draping and quality of touch, and the warning signs of predator therapists. Ethical guidelines for schools, spas, clinic owners, therapists, and clients are given to prevent sexual, physical, and emotional harm in massage therapy.
Given the significant importance of this issue in our profession, the webinar will be available free to all for the entire month of January, and ABMP members will have the option to earn free CE hours. The course is available at www.abmp.com/members/continuing-education/online-learning/courses/webinar-ethics-preventing-sexual-misconduct-massage-therapy—please share it with colleagues, employees, employers, school owners, instructors, or anyone else you think might benefit.
