Disclaimer and Information for Pulse CPSEA Programs
Information shared during Pulse meetings and programs should not be used as a substitute for professional diagnosis and treatment of any illness either physical, mental, or emotional. Shared information does not take into account your specific circumstances and should not be acted on without full understanding of your current situation and future goals and objectives by a fully qualified medical professional.
Pulse programs are for informational purposes only and are not intended to replace professional medical or mental health advice, diagnosis, or treatment; or legal, financial or any other advice from a professional with whom you may form a relationship.
While the Pulse facilitator tries to limit advice there is no guarantee, either expressed or implicit, regarding how correct, complete or up-to-date the shared information is.
Meetings, Programs and Workshops: How We Treat Each Other
At Pulse programs, meetings, and workshops we always try to do the following:
- Begin and end on time.
- Stay on topic and follow the agenda when there is one.
- One person speaks at a time during open discussion.
- No names of any professional person or organization are used, whether sharing positive or negative information.
- Listen to understand, not to contradict.
- Respect the views of others.
- Check your understanding by asking questions.
- Do not ask questions to pry as it may make someone uncomfortable to answer.
- Constructive, honest debate is desirable.
- Opinions are not facts. State that you are sharing your opinion when appropriate.
- Silence is agreement.
- Attack problems, not people.
- No side conversations.
- Comments should be short and to the point; too long and anyone can speak up to move on.
- What is said here stays here until otherwise notified.
- Phone calls and texting should be done away from others.
- Share what has worked for you, not what others “should” do – No advice is permitted unless specifically requested.
- Speak up if at any time you do not understand or feel uncomfortable.
- Avoid or explain acronyms or any words that some people may not know or understand. Be inclusive in conversation.
- Zoom or virtual programs:
- Side chats should be avoided as they may be distracting.
- Keep camera on, when possible, to keep the program conversational.
- Mute when not speaking to avoid background noise.
- Try to be in a private area for sensitive conversations, or wear headphones.
