March 21st, 2012Legal Guidelines for Unlicensed Practitioners
We get many calls at the School of Natural Healing asking what an Herbalist can do once they have received their certifications. Being that Herbalists are not licensed to touch, diagnose or prescribe, there are guidelines that must be followed. New to Christopher Publications and soon to be included in the course work of the Master Herbalist program at the School of Natural Healing is the book Legal Guidelines for Unlicensed Practitioners by Dr. Lawrence Wilson.
This book answers most questions for anyone in the helping or healing profession. The book gives you guidelines on how to steer clear of legal trouble. It teaches how your thoughts, words and deeds can affect your legal status. There are certain words that are reserved for licensed practitioners only. Learn what they are and what to say instead.
There are tips on how to present yourself and your practice to clients and the public in a professional manner. If you are uncertain on how to set up your practices, options are given along with the advantages and disadvantages of each. This will help you determine the best path for you and your business.
Laws and their purposes are discussed so that there is an understanding of the legal environment in which we live and work. You will know your rights and obligations under the laws as a practitioner. The book describes how to create and use consent, disclaimer and disclosure forms as well as including samples.
Should problems arise, advice is given on how to handle legal issues and how to speak with legal authorities. The book also discusses your rights under the Ninth Amendment.
Legal Guidelines for Unlicensed Practitioners is a power packed, 136 page book that is full of revealing keys that will lead your practice to success. It is a must have for anyone in the natural healing field.
