Title: The Ethics of Client Communication: Talking to Clients about Their Health

Hours: 4 CE credits


This class addresses the delicate art of communicating professionally and with open hearts when we have concerns about our clients’ wellbeing. Key topics include medications that may influence bodywork choices; visual or palpatory signs that are red flags; and maintaining boundaries for client safety (how to say “no” when your client says “yes”). Basic principles of active listening are reviewed and employed as students observe a variety of difficult client-therapist conversations, all based on real-life situations provided by past participants.

Ruth Werner is an author, educator as well as an artist. Her book A Massage Therapist’s Guide to Pathology is now in it’s 7th Edition. Visit her website www.ruthwerner.com for more information.
