Our Code of Ethics
Certified Trauma Recovery Coaches are held to high ethical standards. The IAOTRC Code of Ethics assures that clients will receive professional care from certified coaches. The standards also serve as a guide to coaches on how to build their practice and maintain ethical relationships with their clients.
Our Guiding Principles
The IAOTRC Guiding Principles were developed by Bobbi Parish after years of work as both a therapist and a Trauma Recovery Coach. They are meant to provide a foundation on which every Certified Coach builds their work with clients. These principles unify us as coaches and inform our knowledge and skills.
