SBCNA and its membership are committed to the protection of human rights. SBCNA members strive to maintain the dignity and worth of the individual while rendering service, conducting research, and training others. All members are expected to abide by all relevant laws of the state in which they practice and operate within the principles of ethics governing their own discipline and those outlined herein. Members strive to provide optimum quality services and to differentiate for those served whether procedures provided have been proven effective clinically or if such procedures are, as yet, non-validated. They accept responsibility for their actions and make every effort to protect the welfare of those they serve and the public. They limit their services to those areas in which they have skills and expertise and recognize their needs for competence, objectivity, freedom of inquiry, and honest communication.
