Workshops for Regulators
Every health care professional needs to know where the ‘line’ is. Professional working standards are essential. This is why all professions have written codes of conduct, ethics and behaviors: to guard against changing societal standards. If the changes in society’s moral standards affected the professions, there would be an erosion of the high standards demanded of professionalism. These standards protect the public by ensuring the highest level of trust.
"High risk – Zero tolerance” is the theme for Dr. Kinsinger’s workshops. Unfortunately the evidence shows that manual care practitioners are at a greater risk for boundary violations and sexual abuse of their patients than the other professions.
These are serious matters. Your group needs an enjoyable time dealing with these issues. Simply reading a book or doing an on-line tutorial may not be enough. The opportunity to meet with peers to discuss how to keep practice safe and fun for both caregiver and patient is just what the doctor ordered.
Dr. Kinsinger’s workshops are practical, relevant and fun, while getting the message across. The following are just some of the topics covered:
- transference and counter-transference
- when humor crosses the line
- when a hug is more than a hug
- how to know if your patient’s gift is appropriate
- how to maintain a healthy boundary
- risk avoidance and management
- practitioner at risk
- self disclosure versus personalizing
- dealing with the seductive patient
