Washingon Massage Continuing Education Courses

Ethics, Supervision, and Boundaries with Brian Utting (live, via Zoom)

We will begin with a thorough review of state massage law, and some interesting, important, and occasionally upsetting changes to the law. We will also cover the Washington State massage laws that went into effect on September 1st, 2021.

After a review of professional ethics, roles, and boundaries, we will take a more personal approach to professional ethics. Ethics is a living subject and is best learned in a live, interactive format. As massage practitioners, we work closely and intimately with our clients, but we often experience isolation and burnout in our own practices. When ethical conflicts, confusions, and challenges inevitably arise, we often feel that we have no place to take them.

In this peer supervision class, we will explore your current professional issues and dilemmas, whether they be interpersonal, ethical, financial, Covid-related, or other. This is not a hypothetical 'you should eat your vegetables' approach to ethics, but rather an opportunity to draw support and gain insight from your peers and mentors. The class size will be quite small and intimate, with a maximum of 9 students. You will return to your practice refreshed and with a deeper sense of clarity.

“Finally, an ethics class that is substantive, useful and not onerous!! I may never be able to tolerate the alternatives again.” -Darlene Sluder

"My time and money were definitely well spent. I feel like I am a better person as well as a better LMT after taking this class. This ethics class probably was the most important one of my career as we come off of the heights of Covid, but are still not through it.‚Äč" - Lindsay Butler

"When I registered for this class, I was hoping for a competent ethics class that would offer more than merely an opportunity to satisfy a licensing renewal requirement. What I received was a thoroughly superb presentation which was easily the most beneficial ethics class I have ever taken. I can hardly believe I am looking forward to my next one in two years." - David Benoff

"Masterfully organized, and complete in subject coverage, handouts, and time management." -Barbara Johnson

“I didn’t anticipate that I would come to feel in community with 10 strangers so quickly. It’s helpful and humanizing to hear other people’s stories and what they are wrestling with in their practices, and also have the opportunity to sort through some of my own questions with a supportive community.” -Alice Hunting
