Instructor: Don Ash, PT, CSTA-CP
This is Don Ash's class "Ethics and Compassionate Action in Times of Stress" (Ethics - CATS). This workshop covers AMTA Ethical Guidelines and Don's two simple methods for reducing stress: a breathing relaxation method called "Breath Venting" and a 5-minute gentle stretching exercise method called "Spacious Circle."
In these workshops -- offered in both three-hour and six-hour formats -- Don discusses the definition of ethics and compassion and the AMTA Ethical Guidelines. Each class provides Ethics CEUs depending on the workshop, whether it is 3 hours or 6 hours. There will be active participation and discussion around compassionate touch in bodywork and boundaries in therapeutic situations. He will cover self-help techniques for managing stress, pain, anxiety, and tension. The effects of stress on the body, chronic pain, back pain, neck pain, emotional holding, PTSD, and anxiety will also be discussed. Don will demonstrate his two techniques to help you cope naturally with stress and the associated feelings of anger and sadness. You'll also improve your ability to deal with other issues that trigger all types of stress. In these workshops attendees will learn:
There will be time allowed for Questions and Answers. A written study guide is included as well as a CD of Don's guided meditation "Breath Venting."
