  • 0 P002 New Perspectives: Ethical Standards for the 21st Century Practitioner в†’ New Perspectives on Ethics, Session 1: Comment Board 09.10.2011 12:53
    Mary Jo, I appreciated all you said but especially how you said it. At the end when you talked about hugs I felt even more connected. I work with so many people who are "hug deprived". I have believed in attachment before it was fashionable. I was trained to work with children and they taught me so much but now work with "grown children". I work a lot with Veterans dealing with severe trauma which often "disconnects them from their essense". I have used emdr for many years and one of the things I appreciate about it is the way it allows for clear boundries. I am not the "healer--they are". We put question marks where they used to have exclamation points. A respectful process. I do believe that Ethics is about respect,honesty and knowing yourself. It's about listening to the story you are being told and reading between the lines. Your knowing who You are is crucial and resonates throughout all you say and do. I have appreciated your work for a long time---guess I'm a groupy.I always feel good hearing you present your views of ethics, therapy and Life. Thank you so much. Jay S.
