Understanding and Embracing the Certification Examination

Posted by on in Energy Magazine

We are sure that there are some of you may be feeling some angst as we approach finalization of the certification exam for HTP. Fear not! We are here to help you prepare and want to reassure you that all of this is worth the effort! “Why do we have to have this exam?” some of you are asking. I believe that this is an opportunity for HTP to raise the bar to demonstrate to b2ap3_thumbnail_studying-hard-545923-m.jpgthe public that a Healing Touch Certified Practitioner meets similar certification standards as other Healing Arts Programs. Those of us that are HTP certified know how rigorous our current process is, but this certification is not in a format that meets the higher caliber professional standard that agencies such as Magnet Status hospitals are requested to meet. Expectations of the level of knowledge, ability, and professionalism that the HTCP must have, need to be demonstrated at this higher level in order to qualify for national accreditation. HTP’s certification exam process will facilitate HTP meeting those requirements, maintain our position as a leader in the field of energy medicine, and will make your credential more valuable and more versatile.

The new HTP certification exam is being developed “by the people for the people.” This means that HTCPs, current professionals in the field, have volunteered to be Subject Matter Experts (SME). The SMEs are writing the questions, reviewing the questions to ensure appropriateness and accuracy, and are directly involved in structuring the exam. In fact, the SMEs are directly involved in the entire process of creating the test to ensure that it is an evaluation that shows that the applicant has the level of knowledge, understanding, and expertise required of an entry level HTCP. The SMEs are choosing the exam questions for the actual examination that is coming soon to a neighborhood near you! We are anticipating the multiple-choice, proctored exam to be approximately 100 questions that can be taken in a variety of proctored settings. Having a proctored exam means that it will be strictly supervised (no taking it at home in your PJ’s!) and it is our plan that this test will be offered at such places as community colleges, or libraries.

Just Do The Work and See What Else Is Possible

Posted by on in Energy Magazine

 

 Originally published in Energy Magazine: The official Publication of the Healing Touch Program May Issue.  Just Do the Work and see What Else is Possible by Cindy Palajac, Hon. B.A., Dip. Adult Ed., HTCP/I

Yesterday was my day off and the farthest thing from my mind was “doing the work of Healing Touch.” I enjoyed a lovely hand reflexology treat­ment, went to the chiropractor with my daughter, had lunch and went to yoga with a girlfriend.Then around 3:00 pm, as I followed my guidance to stop by a restaurant and pick up my daughter’s pay check, I was not aware that spirit was leading me to “do the work.” When I en­tered the Huron House Restaurant the owner was on the phone with 911 because a patron was in cardiac distress. I asked if I could help and he said, “Yes, go to the back of the b2ap3_thumbnail_mother-and-son-49314-m.jpgrestaurant”. The woman in distress was sitting up but appeared disoriented. I asked for permission from her daughterto do energy healing and proceeded to hold her shoulders, comfort her with words, work up and down her spine and then hold the front of her forehead and back of her neck. I continued to do Healing Touch as we waited for the emergency squad to arrive but I became acutely aware of the distress the daughter and sister were in. I was also aware that their stress increased once the paramed­ics arrived. I encouraged them to breathe deeply and stay calm and just allowed them to talk.
