Charles follows a strict code of conduct published by the Pathwork Helpers Association of North America (PHANA). Prospective workers (clients) who wish to acquaint themselves with this code of conduct can view the code by clicking here. Topics covered by this code of conduct include privacy and confidentiality of the sessions, protections against the exploitation of the helper/worker relationship, and the need for the helper to pursue his own personal work on an on-going basis.

In keeping with both the PHANA code of conduct and the helper/worker agreement, Charles will under no circumstances discuss any part of a worker's session with outside third parties, unless one or more of these exceptions exist (1) reference to the worker's session takes place within Charles' own confidential session with his helpership supervisor, and the intention of this reference is to clear personal matters that may impede Charles' work with the involved worker, (2) Charles has received written permission from the worker to disclose certain details to specified third parties, (3) Charles has been ordered by a court of law to release this information, or (4) Charles reasonably suspects that the worker may cause physical harm to him- or herself or to others.

As with any alternative methodology, prospective workers should take the time to familiarize themselves with the structure and standards of this practice called Pathwork, so as to avoid making unjustified assumptions and/or reaching unrealistic conclusions about the nature of the Pathwork. Prospective workers who have questions or concerns about the Pathwork process are invited to contact Charles directly.
