This workshop explores important ethical principles for working with trauma survivors. It presents a foundation for understanding the physiological, psycho-emotional and energetic dynamics of trauma from an integrative perspective of neuro-biology and the Five Elements of Chinese Medicine. This foundation serves as a departure point for exploring critical choices a practitioner must make to provide ethical treatment for trauma survivors. With this awareness, practitioners can make situationally appropriate choices with respect to: patient consent, respecting rights and dignity, clinical transparency, cultural competency, non-discrimination, patient privacy, appropriate boundaries, scope of practice and other areas.

Course Goals:

  • Understand dynamics to consider when offering trauma survivors truly informed consent.
  • Have an awareness of the breadth of what respecting the rights and dignity of trauma survivors means, and implications for doing this practically in a clinical setting.
  • Have specific steps practitioners can take to maintain clinical transparency when treating trauma survivors.
  • Explore distinctions between cultural competency and cultural humility. Understand why awareness of cultural norms is important for ethical treatment of trauma survivors.
  • Be aware of special considerations with respect to scope of practice that are relevant when treating trauma survivors.
  • Be aware of languaging approaches that are effective in working with trauma survivors in treatment situations.
