The Ethics of Caring Book

Kylea Taylor’s book The Ethics of Caring: Finding Professional Right Relationship with Clients was published November 1, 2017. It received the Silver Medal book award from Nautilus Book Awards in the category “Relationships and Communication.

The Ethics of Caring is written for students and practicing professionals: therapists, educators, medical professionals, hypnotherapists, bodyworkers, hospice workers, clergy and other professional caregivers. 

Ethical issues pertain to longings, feelings, and motivations which resonate at our very core. Our drives toward (and away from) money, sexuality, power, love, truth, inspiration, and oneness are the most powerful forces in our lives. How can we expect that these drives will not arise in one way or another in our relationships with clients? When we engage in self-discovery to know better our own motivations, we reduce client harm and increase client benefit.

The work with non-ordinary states of consciousness brings specific new challenges and problems that go beyond those encountered in traditional verbal and experiential approaches. Kylea Taylor’s book is a pioneering venture into these new territories, providing important guidelines for practitioners and students.
