ZZZY.) Not Your Typical Ethics Class (Seattle October 21, 2018)


Product Description

Instructor: Kay Rynerson, LMT, RTT; NCBTMB 450656-08

Tired of taking the typical ethics class? The Washington State ethics requirement, WAC 246-830-475 section 1b, states:

A minimum of four hours must be in professional ethics, communication, and/or Washington state massage laws and regulations. Two of these hours must include professional roles and boundaries.

Fortunately, WA state law permits therapists to satisfy the 4-hour ethics requirement by taking ethics and/or communications. Many ethics classes developed to satisfy NCBTMB or WA state delve into very similar topics involving professionalism, various ethic dilemmas, state laws and regulations and so on. If you'd like to take a class that's different from the rest and useful in promoting your practice and in working with your clients, read on:

Ever been at your child's soccer game, your neighborhood farmer's market or your hair styling salon and wanted to let everyone know that you can address that painful knee or low back or stress-related headache with your wonderful hands? I know you can walk the walk, but how well can you initiate the talk? How do you tastefully and subtly let those around you know that you can make them feel better by coming to see you? Let's rehearse! In this section of class, we will break into small groups and you will write an outline of a brief self-promotion speech (with a specific audience in mind). Everyone will pair up and you will present your elevator speech to your partner and then have your partner present theirs to you, alternating about 10 times. You'll be surprised how convincing you can be after repetition!

After the first section of class, everyone will write a very brief synopsis of a boundaries and/or communications-related incident that has happened to you or to someone you know in the course of your massage practice. My assistant and I will choose some of the juiciest ones and act them out for you. Together, we will explore ways to address the situation based on ideas from the business best seller, "Difficult Conversations: How to Discuss What Matters Most", by a team of Harvard researchers. We will then discuss the scenarios with a as a group.

Come prepared to participate and have some fun!

Please note that this class does not discuss WA State Law, please see our other ethics classes. This class satisfies NCBTMB & WA's ethics requirement.

What to Bring: Yourself, your scenarios, your experiences, your pen!
