The deontology for the practice of Accompanied Inner Communication
The training of Accompanied Inner Communication is primarily for health care professionals. However, it is possible to accept people who have completed personal therapeutic work and who are concurrently training in the field of heath care.
The accompaniment with Inner Communication is demanding and requires constant work on oneself to avoid or reduce as much as possible, the projections and transfers that are inherent to our human quality.
It is composed of 6 modules that are obligatory for everyone.
Between two modules, it is requested that the trainees practice, if possible between themselves and also participate in the revision-practice sessions.
Personal therapeutic work is also required parallel to the training. It is the guarantor of professional integrity and helps avoid confusion with one’s personal history.
- Accompanied Inner Communication is done by holding the hand of the person who has come to be accompanied, thus in his presence. It is a practice that implies accompanying the gesture of the accompanied person above a computer keyboard to allow the expression of an experience that is inexprimable with conscious speech.
- Accompanying people with disabilities sometimes requires the practitioner to adapt his accompaniment to the motor or neuromuscular difficulties of the person typing.
Accompanying able-bodied people:
- The accompaniment with AIC is done with the intention to allow the accompanied person to live the present with increased conscience and feelings of harmony. Any attitude of curiosity is incompatible with this practice.
- The practitioner does not interpret what has been expressed via the keyboard. He refers the accompanied person to his feelings, in relation to what he typed. However, if needed, he will decode the metaphors that emerge.
- The practitioner is respectful of the beliefs of each person and in no way tries to influence him.
- Confidentiality: The contents of the texts are strictly confidential.
- When accompanying children, this confidentiality must be respected. If it seems desirable to share certain aspects of the text with the parent present, the child must be asked for permission.
- The accompanier does not intervene in any possible aspect of medical prescriptions, or in police investigations.
Accompanying non-speaking people
- In the sense that AIC is also an alternative method of communication, the session can be interactive and the parent accompanying the person would in this case, be present in the room during the session.
- However, in all cases a confidential space will be foreseen during the session itself.
- In an institution or in connection with an institution: the typed texts are confidential and should in no way become part of the institution’s files.
- It is up to the person typing in AIC with the support of the accompanier, to decide whether or not the texts should be shared.
The typed texts:
- In all cases, a text typed in Accompanied Inner Communication expresses a feeling. It has no value as a truthful historical event or as testimony.
- The texts are exclusively the expression of a unique present moment, that of the session.
