continuing education classes for LMTs in Oregon and Washington
the ethics of client-centered presence
Client-centered presence is an essential component of the therapeutic relationship, an ethical responsibility, and a commitment we make to our clients. However, at times our human bodies and minds can make this challenging to achieve or sustain. In this class, we will discuss what client-centered presence is (and isn’t), what threatens it, and why it matters. We will explore prevention strategies to minimize the likelihood of losing this client-centered presence, and what we can do in the moment when it inevitably happens.
My intention is to provide a safe space within which you can engage in honest self-reflection and dialogue with your peers. There will be opportunities for writing, small and large group discussion, guided mindfulness activities...and space for whatever else we co-create.
