ICPKP Faculty and students are required to abide by this Code of Ethics as are all PKP™ Practitioners and Kinesiopractors®.
I set a credible, honourable and ethical example for my (future) profession as a Kinesiologist.
I am responsible in realising my own truth and encourage others to do the same.
I will continue my own self development through kinesiology and other modalities.
I will honour my financial responsibilities.
I honour my personal commitment to my profession through compassion, caring, and love for myself, my fellow beings and our world.
I acknowledge that the purpose of kinesiology is to support and reinforce the body’s innate ability to heal itself.
I recognise that the responsibility for choice before, during, and after a balance is the perogative of the person with whom I work.
I acknowledge that the muscle test is a bio-feed back mechanism and does not take the place of rational thought, feelings, choice or decisions.
I respect that each of us is our own authority and no person can decide for another.
I respect the political, spiritual and personal beliefs of the people with whom I work and never impose my own beliefs on them.
I commit myself to become competent and to continue my personal development before practising the profession of kinesiology.
I accept and acknowledge the limitations of both my profession and myself. If in doubt I will refer to someone with greater training.
I agree to use the energy model, to accept what presents in the person and not to focus on difficulties but on their potential.
I agree to facilitate the knowing participation, awareness and growth of the person.
I declare I will never establish a diagnosis, nor prescribe a treatment unless I already possess the appropriate qualifications.
I promise to never represent myself as a medical doctor nor to substitute myself for a primary care practitioner.
I will not defame or criticise other models of kinesiology, medicine or healing.
I consider myself as a companion on the person’s journey to wholeness.
I respect confidentiality and professional secrets; all that is said to me, all that I see or participate in (names and addresses too).
I agree to ask (a teacher) for help if my client’s (partner’s) emotional reactions are greater than the limits of my skill and experience.
I will conform to the legislation of the country and respect human rights and dignity.
I honour the right of all to free thought and free will and I will refuse all forms of dogma.
I will not judge, criticise or blame the person with whom I work.
I will conduct myself with honesty, integrity, respect and courtesy.
I will not use the practitioner-client relationship to gain social, sexual or other personal advantage.
I acknowledge that sexual intimacy between a practitioner and client is neither professional nor ethical.
I agree to indicate clearly to any person with whom I do my practical work outside of the college that I am a student and have not yet reached competency in all my work. (Applies to ICPKP students only.)
I will not represent myself as an employee, staff member or spokesperson of the International College of Professional Kinesiology Practice (ICPKP) without written permission of the Registrar.
