In this definitive work on ethics, Ben Benjamin and Cherie Sohnen-Moe directly address the difficult, confusing, and seldom-discussed-but-often-troubling dilemmas confronting touch therapy practitioners. By honestly describing the issues, identifying clear principles, naming specific resources, and using stories straight from the treatment room, they have written a book to guide, support, and inspire both students and seasoned practitioners. Reflective exercises and questions allow the reader to personalize each chapter. With love and respect for the field and for clients everywhere, Dr. Benjamin and Ms. Sohnen-Moe articulate high expectations and outline practical steps to meet them.
This book belongs in the office of every somatic practitioner and in the classrooms of every professional training school. Practitioners with a clear understanding of ethical behavior and professional communication skills are the ones who create and build successful practices.
The Ethics of Touch is used by more than 700 healing arts associations and schools and is a required text in more than 200 schools.
Note: The Ethics of Touch is used as a reference text for the FSMTB’s licensing exam, the MBLEx
