Holistic Counseling Training Series with Chris McDonald, LCMHCS

There is much confusion and uncertainty about the legal and ethical considerations of using holistic strategies with clients. How do we know if we are competent to use these? Can we use these strategies legally and ethically? These and other questions will be addressed.  The last webinar is one that is near and dear to my heart. Many times you give too much of yourself and you end up feeling burned out. This webinar will address ways to build more solid boundaries emotionally, physically, and energetically.
