Statement of Ethics and Conduct

I will conduct my practice of Therapeutic Touch in accordance with the generally accepted principles of Therapeutic Touch™ as developed by Dolores Krieger, Ph.D., R.N., and Dora Kunz.

In advance of treatment sessions, I will make clear to the client any fees which I will charge for my service and I will ensure that all interpersonal transactions between me and the client are non-exploitive and essential to her/his care.

I acknowledge that Therapeutic Touch may increase the rapport between the client and the practitioner. Therefore, I will keep all information in strict confidence.

No one can be present at a treatment without the expressed permission of the client.

I will not use Therapeutic Touch as a basic for psychotherapy, spiritual or other counselling, unless I have the training and qualifications to do so, as well as permission of the client.

I will focus on the needs of the client and will refrain from discussing any of my problems or personal issues.

I will regularly evaluate my strengths, limitations and levels of effectiveness. I will strive for self-improvement and seek to enhance my abilities by means of further education and training.

In any Therapeutic Touch session, I will maintain the highest integrity, keeping the interest of the client foremost, and I will conduct all sessions in a manner that upholds the reputation of the Therapeutic Touch throughout the world.

I will not hold the Therapeutic Touch Network of Quebec responsible for any consequences resulting from my practice of Therapeutic Touch.

I understand that, should the Therapeutic Touch Network of Quebec receive any complaints about me or my sessions, I will be notified of that complaint. If, after due process of investigation, a respectful resolution of any associated problems cannot be achieved, the TTNQ has the right to withdraw my name from the List of members and/or my Recognized Practitioner Status may be removed.
