Ethics and Emotional Issues
In this course we explore the dynamics of the client/practitioner relationship. Through exercises, discussion and hands-on work we will focus on boundary issues for creating safety for the practitioner and the client, transference and counter-transference issues in the therapeutic relationship, and working with emotional responses from our clients as well as our responses as practitioners to the work and content of the sessions. We will develop specific skills for tracking, supporting and facilitating the physiological and energetic mood of our clients, and we will investigate ways to notice and address unresolved trauma issues that may come up in the sessions with clients.
