Massage and Bodywork
Peer Supervision Groups Defined: Peer groups are groups of professionals joining together to learn about themselves and the therapeutic relationship that occurs between the client and the professional. I believe that a community of peer groups is the next step for the massage profession in developing and building the profession. As we are able to take a look at ourselves and our work and support each other in the process, our work will take on more meaning for ourselves and our clients.
Peer supervision groups are intended to provide support for massage therapists in any manner that is needed such as:
Building a Profession through Peer Groups
Is your practice Juicy, Vital and Exciting?
The goal of the Massage Practice Builder is to provide a forum for developing peer groups and support in the personal and professional development of the therapist. It is not our purpose to judge or fix your practice, but support you in finding out what it is you want and how are you going to get that. In the process of getting clear about who you are and what you need, your practice will flourish. You can only take a client as far as you are willing to go.
The format of the group will be active discussion, weekly chats and weekly emails to support the topics of discussion. I will be focusing on issues dealing with the therapeutic relationship and your role in your practice.
