Introduction to The Right Use of Power, The Heart of Ethics for the Helping Professional
The New Year's Breakfast presentation is an introduction to the work of Cedar Barstow, M. Ed, C.H.T., The Right Use of Power, The Heart of Ethics. Given the time allowed we will share a brief overview and exploration.
The Right Use of Power teaches ethics from the inside out. Barstow puts forth theory and ideas intended to be of inspiration, for personal exploration and practical guidance and support. Most ethics courses for psychotherapists focus only on teaching us about the laws and rules. The approach of this work designates the importance of laws and rules as one aspect of right use of power, then it helps people move to a deeper connection to their own ethical nature and an internal sense of their own integrity which in turn increases awareness of right relations with clients. The Right Use of Power, The Heart of Ethics for the Helping Professional can be helpful to all types of caregivers, counselors, healers, teachers, clergy, educators, administrators, coaches and consultants. With this work we can reframe ethics as the right use of power, understanding it as power and heart. This is a significant shift as it allows the heart to remain connected, bringing compassion to power and power to compassion.
