Professional Ethics

Creating Healthy Relationships with Clients, Professionals, and Self

An understanding of ethics is one of the most important pieces of knowledge a practitioner of the healing arts can possibly have. Whether you’re a medical or psychology professional, a coach, or an alternative medicine practitioner, understanding the ethical dimensions of healing is vital to professional success.

Ethical principles are not restrictive rules and regulations – they are maps for bringing out your best as a caregiver and healer. They guide you toward healthy boundaries, self-care, appropriate relationships with clients, and effective communication with other professionals in the healthcare field.

Healing work isn’t just about what happens in the therapeutic encounter, but also about how you communicate and act with integrity in your professional and personal relationships. While there are hundreds of energy healing modalities, and thousands of practitioners train in them each year, the field has been handicapped by a lack of articulated and standardized ethical guidelines for practitioners. The Energy Healer’s Ethics Course addresses this need.

In the course you’ll identify your “scope of practice” and what you can and cannot do as an energy healing professional. If you’re a licensed mental health counselor, or a medical practitioner, you’ll learn how your energy healing credentials interface with the requirements of your primary care license. If you’re a coach or trained energy healer, you’ll learn how to interact with nurses, doctors, psychiatrists, psychotherapists, other professionals, and the healthcare system.

You’ll also discover how governments and regulatory agencies view the field of complementary medicine (CAM), and the terms and language you must use on your web site, in your marketing, with clients, and with fellow professionals in order to maintain the highest ethical standards and avoid triggering regulatory reviews.

Once you’re familiar with the many issues involved in professional ethics, you’ll become comfortable navigating this tricky terrain. You’ll find ethical issues coming up repeatedly as you practice your skills with others. You’ll be so glad you’ve prepared yourself in advance, by completing this Energy Healer’s Ethics Course.

The Energy Healer’s Ethics Course is accredited for Continuing Education / Continuing Medical Education (CE / CME) for doctors (American Medical Association), psychologists and psychotherapists (American Psychological Association), nurses (American Nurses Credentialing Commission) and social workers (Association of Social Work Boards). These credentials are recognized by the corresponding organizations in most other countries. The course curriculum was developed by Energy Psychology Group, Inc., the first organization to be accredited for CE / CME by all these organizations, based on its “evidence-based” and scientific approach to energy healing.

From the Desk of Dawson Church

Dear Fellow Professional,

I remember a miserable day in 2010. “Dan,” a health coach and close friend of mine, had just been reported to the California Board of Behavioral Sciences (CABBS), accused of practicing psychology without a license.

The CABBS is obliged to investigate every complaint it receives. My friend was in a panic. He suddenly found himself having to hire a lawyer, and find out if what he’d done was really legally wrong. When the attorney and I looked at Dan’s website, we found all kinds of “red flag” language.

“I didn’t see it coming.”

Those were Dan’s words when he got hit with the CABBS investigation. At first he felt angry and outraged, feeling like he’d been unfairly targeted by a big state organization. But I and his attorney patiently explained to him that he had indeed crossed ethical “red lines” by the way he described his services.

With nothing but the best of intentions, Dan had innocently and unintentionally gone where he didn’t belong. Ignorance is not bliss. And ignorance of ethical boundaries is no defense against crossing them. Once he understood this, Dan cleaned up the offending language on his web site.

As a respected researcher, I wrote a letter to CABBS defending Dan, and explaining the research behind the work Dan and I do. Eventually, he was cleared of any wrongdoing, and with a cleaned-up web site, resumed his coaching practice.

However, the legal bills and webmaster charges left Dan $20,000 in debt. That’s an expensive and unpleasant way to get an education in professional ethics.

This all could have been prevented if Dan had taken a course like this, and understood the basics of energy healing ethics.

Several such events made me realize how little most coaches and healers know about the ethics of their profession, and how easy it is for them to get caught out by problems they don’t see coming. I even asked my many psychologist friends ethical questions about energy healing, and was surprised by the big gaps in their knowledge. I heard them make guesses that simply weren’t true. Others muttered about “liability.” Some were immobilized by fear.

Yes, what you don’t know can hurt you. It can also hurt your credibility with other professionals, government agencies, your clients, and your family.

Dan’s predicament, and the ignorance I discovered among both coaches and licensed mental health professionals, motivated me. I realized that just a basic knowledge of professional ethics can avoid 90%+ of these problems. I looked for solutions that I could share with others in the field.

I teamed up with two of my close friends to gather the best wisdom of the field into a single curriculum. David Feinstein, PhD, is a clinical psychologist who has been teaching ethics for many years. Dorothea Hover-Kramer, EdD, co-founded ACEP, the Association for Comprehensive Energy Psychology.

David, Dorothea, and our professional colleagues pooled our knowledge. We drew on our decades of collective experience. We studied the ethics codes and practices of many professional organizations, from the American Psychological Association to the British Complementary Medicine Association. We put all their best practices into written form.

The result was two excellent textbooks on the subject, one by David, the other by Dorothea. Together, they lay the foundation for the professional ethics of the field. Since they were published, I no longer have to defend the Dans who graduate from energy healing programs. Once they’ve taken the ethics course, they know their boundaries, and don’t put themselves into compromising situations.

Now you don’t have to stumble around trying to find reliable information. In this easy-to-use course based on those two textbooks, you can quickly learn the key principles of energy healing ethics. Without repeating Dan’s expensive mistakes, for just a few hundred dollars, you can emerge with a thorough knowledge of the ethical principles you’ll need to be a successful practitioner.

I look forward to sharing the wealth of knowledge that this course represents.

To your success!

The Foundation for the Course

The Energy Healer’s Ethics Course is based on two excellent textbooks. They are The Ethics Handbook for Energy Healing Practitioners by David Feinstein, PhD, and Donna Eden, and Creating Healing Relationships by Dorothea Hover-Kramer, EdD.

Donna Eden and David Feinstein, PhD, developed Eden Energy Medicine (EEM), a professional curriculum that has become one of the world’s most successful and effective energy medicine certification programs. Working with the Ethics Committee of EEM, they drafted The Ethics Handbook for Energy Healing Practitioners.

This comprehensive, case-oriented guide allows veterans of the field and newcomers alike to work through a wide range of ethical dilemmas before they arise. These help you to prevent professional errors that could hurt you, your clients, and your practice.

Yet coherence isn’t some kind of mysterious magic that only Master Manifestors possess. It’s attainable using specific mental techniques that anyone can learn. It’s a skill, not a gift. In fact, I’ve already taught thousands of people the skill of bringing their brains into coherence.

David Feinstein, PhD

Dorothea Hover-Kramer, EdD

Creating Healing Relationships by Dorothea Hover-Kramer, EdD, was the first book to seriously address the need for professional standards in the rapidly growing field of energy healing. Using many practical examples, it demonstrates how the ethic of human caring can be translated into professional standards for safe and successful energy therapy practice.

How It Works

In the Energy Healer’s Ethics Course, you’ll read these two ethics books, watch the accompanying videos, and complete an online exam when you’re done. This will demonstrate your understanding of the energy healing ethics.

To prepare yourself, you’ll take two mini-quizzes, one for each of the two textbooks. Once you’ve completed the two mini-quizzes successfully, you’ll be ready to take the full online exam. You’ll also have the opportunity to interact with other students and faculty in our virtual community.

Start to finish, the process takes 3-5 days. You can do it at your own pace, picking up and leaving off any time that works for your schedule.

When you complete the final exam, you’ll graduate from the course. You’ll obtain a downloadable certificate of completion. You can print, frame and proudly display this certificate in your office, and state in your bio that you have completed the Energy Healer’s Ethics Course credential.

You’ll also be entitled to display the Ethical Healer badge on your web site. This respected endorsement assures your clients that you have taken a clear stand on professional ethics. Your clients will have the confidence of knowing that you’ve educated yourself on the issues; you’ve studied self-care, professional standards, and client wellbeing. You care about them, and they can trust you.
