Service Description

The Educated Heart-Round Table Discussion Instructor: Amy Scottino, LMT, MTI, CEP Instructor: Christina Hughes, LMT, MTI, CEP Course: 3 CE hours Location: Emerald Bodywork Education Facility 3700 W. 15th street, 300D, Plano, TX 75075 Date: January 17, 2023 Time: 9:00-12:00 Description: We are still learning what it means to be “good manual therapists”. We are learning that technical skill is only one aspect of a responsible and successful practice. For our work to be effective, we need solid therapeutic relationships with our clients. We create such relationships by knowing what belongs in our relationships and what does not. We need to understand the best practices for effective, clear communication with our current and prospective clients. Our work is unusually personal. Clients appreciate our genuine concern and warmth. But much more than that, they need the security of sturdy professional boundaries-and as massage therapists, we also need them for ourselves. How do we go about establishing relationships with our clients that are mutually beneficial and safe? Join us for a casual round table discussion for just this topic. Our conversation will be guided by the book by Laura Allen, The Educated Heart Bring your questions and anecdotal examples of success or failure in this very necessary endeavor (we all have both to share!) Supplies to Bring: Note taking supplies, a cup of coffee and your copy of “The Educated Heart” Resource Text (not required): Nina McIntosh's The Educated Heart: Professional Boundaries for Massage Therapists and Bodyworkers by Laura Allen ISBN-13: 978-1796573060 ISBN-10: 179657306X
