The Ethical Challenges of Oncology Client Care, 3CE
Working with the oncology population both magnifies common ethical issues and presents some that are unique to that population. It can be easy to lose sight of our role as massage therapists when we find ourselves in an environment of suffering that involves whole families and impossible prognoses. This 3-hour course will expose common pitfalls, introduce important tools of communication and support the development of essential self-care strategies. Join oncology massage therapists Lucille Eddy and Lauren Cates for a lively exploration of these and other ethical issues in pediatric and adult oncology care.
The Research and Practical Application of Self-Care, 3CE
Whether you have a passion for helping people or a job that requires you to care for others, taking care of yourself is paramount to your work and will prevent burnout or compassion fatigue. During this three-hour course, you will learn methods and strategies that will elevate and extend your ability to care for others. We will experience a meditation, a nature walk-about, a little bit of laughter therapy and will discuss the research behind self-care. Taught by massage therapist and educator Jacki Sellers; Licensed Clinical Social Worker Catherine Bailey; and yoga teacher and naturalist Kim Mason.
