Book Review of The Ethics of Touch

American Holistic Nurses Association
Beginnings Newsletter
by Charlotte Eliopoulos, Book Review Editor

Although this book does offer core information about ethics, its main focus is establishing a (touch-related) practice based on good ethics and sound business practices. Chapters address ethical principles, boundaries, communication, dual relationships, sex and intimacy, practice management, business ethics, and supervision. An Appendix includes the Code of Ethics from various associations; I admit to being disappointed at not seeing AHNA or other nursing codes of ethics included, particularly as most practitioners of various touch therapies are nurses. Even with that oversight, this book offers practical guidance that those with private practices could find beneficial.
