Personal development for health practitioners
with Liz Kalinowska and Daška Hatton
In bodywork, a space for the practitioner to reflect on themselves and their interaction with their clients is not necessarily a given. Where can practitioners look at their own shadows and strengths, and the numerous pitfalls that may lead to them losing confidence or even becoming the subject of a complaint?
Practitioner care means not only that you try to avoid picking up negative energies from your clients; it goes much further, requiring us to be both eternally vigilant as to how we are relating to our clients, and equally observant of how they are responding to us.
In this talk, Daška Hatton and Liz Kalinowska, both long-standing craniosacral therapists, talk about areas such as client/practitioner boundaries, the dynamics of touch and trust, and exploring our core values as therapists so that both client and practitioner can become equal partners on the therapeutic journey.
