Ethics and Professional Standards
Capital Reiki Academy supports professional practice standards and behaviors for students enrolled in our courses with applicable regulatory and legal standards. Students enrolled in these professional practice learning paths at the Academy will be required to demonstrate compliance with applicable professional organizations’ standards and codes of ethics throughout their enrollment in the learning path. These ethics and professional standards are critical components of the learning paths and review under this policy is conducted under the authority of the Academy.
Violations may include, but are not limited to disrespectful or unprofessional conduct, failure to respond to supervisory feedback, deliberate misrepresentation or falsification of information, failure to meet professional obligations (including non-adherence to affiliation agreements), criminal acts, abuse of or improper relationship with clients, students, or peers, misuse of alcohol or drugs, and disclosure of confidential client or student information (except where required or permitted by law). Students are responsible for demonstrating behaviors that are consistent with the guidelines for their profession throughout their participation in the learning path, including in classes, during residential retreats, in communications with other students and Academy faculty and staff, and during practicum, internship, and other learning experiences. When confronted with an ethical question or dilemma and in instances where the guidelines do not suggest a clear course of action, students are expected to seek consultation with a member of the faculty or Academy director.
