CWC Code of Ethics
Scope of Practice
CWC Practitioners provide quality care to our clients, each within our scope of education, training, and licensing. We do not claim to diagnose, cure, or prevent any illness.
We are a collective of alternative wellness practitioners, here to support each other and our clients. We do not believe in competition. We trust that the clientele that are meant to be served by a particular practitioner will be. We believe the best way to help our clients is to work together, making referrals to other members where appropriate to do so.
Self-Development and Education
CWC Practitioners “practice what we preach” by integrating self-care practices to enhance our own physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being. We maintain an ongoing commitment to learning and self-growth.
Equality and Acceptance
CWC Practitioners are equal partners with their clients in the process of healing. We honor individual autonomy, growth, and self-empowerment. We respect and value our clients regardless of race, creed, age, disability, gender expression, sexual orientation, spiritual beliefs, or health condition.
CWC Practitioners always work with the intention to Do No Harm. We understand that while we are not in control of the outcome of any session, we will always work for the highest good of the client.
Creating a Safe Healing Environment
CWC Practitioners maintain a safe, supportive, and welcoming environment. Safe and clear professional boundaries are maintained. Clients are empowered to give feedback, modify, or discontinue their sessions at any time. Appropriate cleaning measures are taken to ensure the continued well-being of our clients.
Client confidentiality is protected at all times in accordance with HIPAA guidelines. Any session notes or client records are secured in a manner which will ensure compliance with professional and legislative regulations. Written permission must be obtained from the client prior to release of or reporting of any record or information.
CWC members act in a professional manner by exercising good judgement, communicating clearly, and practicing with integrity. All practitioners are responsible for maintaining any necessary licensure, as well as liability insurance.
