An ethics and law class especially for Montanans.
Saturday, November 13th, 10:15am-6pm Mountain Time
7 CE hours total, NCBTMB-approved for CE credit
We will begin with a thorough review of Montana massage law, and some interesting, important, and occasionally upsetting updates to the law. 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 or ‘you should eat your vegetables’ approach to ethics, but rather an opportunity to draw support and gain insight from your peers and mentors as you deal with whatever your real ethical issues or conflicts are. The class size will be quite small and intimate, with two instructors and a maximum of nine students. You will return to your practice refreshed and with a deeper sense of clarity.
The class will be co-taught by Brian Utting, Tamara Leach and Jessica Powell Riley. Tamara has served on the Montana Board of Massage and was an instructor and the Director of Education at Health Works Massage School in Bozeman. Jessica has been in practice since 2008, and was the former Chair of the Montana AMTA.
