Essential Boundaries for Bodyworkers

Starts Monday, April 27th, 2020: 6 weeks. In this course designed specifically for bodyworkers, you’ll learn foundational concepts and practices from The Language of Emotions and The Art of Empathy to help you set boundaries, strengthen your healthy empathy, and create a self-care plan just for you.


Boundaries, Balanced Empathy and Self-Care to Prevent Burnout   


In this 6-week course on empathy and emotions, Camilla Jørgensen, a dual-licensed Dynamic Emotional Integration® Trainer and Consultant, draws on her 20+ years of experience as massage therapist to bring you an empathically-designed experiential course about boundaries, empathy, and self-care for bodyworkers.

Learn how to work with your natural empathy in a healthy and sustainable way by examining the relationship between boundaries and balanced empathy, taking inventories to help you gauge what you’re already good at and where you need more skills, and learning practices to regulate your emotions.

Each week on the live webinar meetings you’ll practice what you learn during the week, like trying out different practices to help regulate emotions, setting boundaries, and improving emotional awareness. Throughout the course, you’ll also combine this knowledge into an individualized self-care plan to help support you long after this course is over. You’ll receive individualized input and guidance from Camilla along the way, and have the opportunity to learn from other students in the group forum and on the weekly live webinars.

This Course is Suitable For: Bodyworkers and caregivers, other types of healthcare workers, and anyone who is interested in developing emotional skills, healthy boundaries, balanced empathy and deeper self-care.

  1. Supportive and informative


    I really enjoyed taking this course with Anchen and Camilla. It was helpful for both my work life and personal life. I have a deeper understanding of how important my boundaries are and how they support me and my clients. Anchen and Camilla demonstrated how to work with our boundaries in a safe and encouraging way. I came away from the course feeling refreshed and more in-tune with myself.
