Professional Development Day 2018
The Healing Journey Continues: Deepening Our Understanding Of Reflective Practice and Therapeutic Touch®
Professional Development Days are a wonderful opportunity to share new learning and experiences, to review and affirm what we already know and to share joyful and meaningful interactions on a topic of interest and relevance to all Therapeutic Touch practitioners. They provide an opportunity to connect with friends, meet new members of our Therapeutic Touch community, learn new ideas and skills both for our inner growth and to enhance our practice of Therapeutic Touch, and to have fun together.
Professional Development Days are open to all Therapeutic Touch practitioners – that is, anyone who has taken a Level One workshop. Taught as designed, the Professional Development Day fulfills the educational requirement for maintaining status as a Recognized Practitioner with the TTNO. The Professional Development Day may also count for a maximum of eight hours of the 32 additional hours of continued studies for achieving Recognized Practitioner status.
Professional Development Day 2018 is designed to bring into focus the importance of a parallel process that occurs in the practice of Therapeutic Touch. Both skill development and increasing inner awareness through personal growth are essential elements to being increasingly competent and confident practitioners. TT is not simply a set of skills and steps in a process. It simultaneously requires inner awareness by the practitioner, of their responses and experience along with working with the phases of TT.
During this day, we will explore some of the ways we might deepen our awareness of our inner self, our consciousness, and the importance of self-reflection in our day-to-day life, as well as in our TT practice.
