Adding alternative modalities to your practice

This self-directed course reviews several Complementary and Alternative Modalities (CAM) and discusses the ethical considerations for implementation into one’s coaching practice. Specific ethical scenarios are offered, using examples from the fields of Reiki, Aromatherapy and Nutrition that many coaches incorporate into their practices.
