Dear DIRI Members,
We wish to thank you for your involvement in reviewing the recent update to the DIRI Code of Ethic. Many faculty and members took part in several zoom meetings to discuss specifics of the new code and to provide feedback to the Board of Directors and Ethics Committee. Each of your contributions was greatly appreciated.
We have closed the voting on the new code and are please to say that it was approved. We distributed a total of 2334 USA and International ballots for the initiative and received 761 competed ballots (33%), which meets quorum requirements. The final vote was 627 approve to 134 reject. The ballot measure has passed.
As state licensing requirements have increased, along with the demands for greater ethical accountability, so has the responsibility of the Institute as a thought leader in the field of Structural Integration. Our adoption of a revised code of ethics puts both the Institute and our members in a stronger position. The new code, fashioned after the restorative justice model, is a significant advancement over our past Code of Ethics insofar as it spells out much more clearly the behavioral standards for practitioners, and the oversight requirements for DIRI Ethics Committee.
As always, thank you for your support, feedback and involvement in the process.
Robin Graber, Chair, DIRI Ethics Committee
Les Kertay, Committee Member, DIRI Ethics Committee
Rich Ennis, Chair, DIRI Board of Directors
Below is a summary of some of the major changes we made to the Code of Ethics.
We believe this new document is up to date with today’s standards and solidifies the place of the Dr. Ida Rolf Institute as the leaders of ethics education in our profession.
