Letter from the Board

October 1, 2018

Greetings Member,  

I hope this message finds you well. As we approach the end of the year, the board is spending a lot of time on finalizing some of the initiatives we have started. Some of these initiatives will requires your feedback to assure our success in meeting your needs and taking advantage of your wisdom. One of those initiatives is the proposed code of conduct to be included in our bylaws, which will be presented for a vote at the end of the year. We have received some questions about the purpose of the code of conduct and how it differs from the CAMFT code of ethics. A code of conduct has the value as an internal guideline and an external statement of the chapter’s values and commitments to its members. A well-written code of conduct clarifies the organization’s mission, values, and principles, linking them with standards of expected professional conduct among members of the chapter. The code articulates the values the organization wishes to foster in leaders and members and in doing so, defines desired behavior. As a result, the code of conduct can become a benchmark against which individual and organizational performance can be measured.

The proposed code of conduct was not developed to substitute the existing CAMFT code of ethics. The code of conduct was developed to serve as a guide and reference for members and board officers to support day-to-day decision making related to the chapter’s members interactions during chapter sponsored events and functions. The code of conduct is meant to supplement the code of ethics by providing clear guidelines of of how actual conduct should reflect the ethical principles of our profession. Adopting an SVC- specific code of conduct encourages discussions and compliance of ethics and empower members to handle unprofessional conduct they may encounters in the chapter’s functions at the local level. In a way, the code of conduct allows the chapter the needed tools and autonomy to provide its members with a safe and professional environment built on respect and acceptance.

I hope this explanation addresses the questions we have received. Please feel free to reach out to the board with any feedback or concerns about the proposed code of conduct. Your input is very valuable. Also, don’t forget to register for upcoming free 3000 Club workshop  **Free** Pre-Licensed 3000 Club Workshop - Overview of the theoretical underpinnings and major treatment components of Intensive In-Home Family Treatment by Paul Sunseri, PsyD 
or our 6 CE Workshop “Neurobiology and Its Impact on Therapy” on October 5th, 2018, presented by Dr. Emina of The Amen Clinic. This program will benefit LMFT, LPCC, LEP and LCSW licensees and pre-licensees. Clinically relevant and research backed data will be presented based on Amen Clinic Research and other large institutions. It supports matching the appropriate therapy to the correct patient based on the patients neurobiology versus only symptom report. It will help to explain "treatment resistance," and provide possible next steps. 


Best Regards,

Talal H. Alsaleem

Ethics Corner

CLINICAL DOCUMENTATION

 “CAMFT Ethics Code Section 1.15 – DOCUMENTING TREATMENT DECISIONS: Marriage and Family Therapists are encouraged to carefully document in their records when significant decisions are made, e.g., determining reasonable suspicion of child, elder, or dependent adult abuse, determining when a patient is a danger to self or others, when making major changes to a treatment plan, or when changing the unit being treated. “

There are several guides that outline the importance and requirement to document clinical work.  The California Business & Professions Code § 4982(v), requires clinicians to keep records consistent with sound clinical judgments, the standards of the profession, and the nature of the services being rendered.

While keeping current on progress notes, treatment plans, and other forms of documentation is tedious and often feels like the worst part of this profession, it’s vital that records are kept to the standard of the community.

An older article written by CAMFT outlines the different types of clinical documentation and why they are important to maintain.  Documentation is needed for many reasons: to show medical necessity, to document treatment plan, for billing and financial records, to document you are upholding legal and ethical requirements in services (such as abuse reporting), etc.

From this same article, CAMFT outlines various types of information that therapists may want to include in progress notes:

  • Treatment modality used
  • Progress, and/or lack of progress
  • Treatment plan
  • Modification(s) of the treatment plan
  • Clinical impressions regarding diagnosis, and or symptoms
  • Relevant psychosocial information
  • Safety issues; danger to self/others
  • Clinical emergencies/actions taken
  • Medications used by the patient
  • Treatment compliance/lack of compliance
  • Clinical consultations
  • Collaboration with other professionals
  • Therapist’s recommendations
  • Referrals made/reasons for making referrals
  • Termination/issues that are relevant to the termination process
  • Issues related to consent and/or informed consent for treatment
  • Information concerning child abuse, and/or elder or dependent adult abuse
  • Information reflecting the therapist’s exercise of clinical judgment.

As David Jenson of CAMFT describes: If it wasn’t written down, it did not occur!


 
 












 

 September Workshop Summary

Family Court/Forensic Mental Health Work presented by Jack D. Love and Diane Wasznicky (2CEs)

Jack Love and Diane Wasznicky gave us a very interesting and informative overview of what it takes to become a child custody recommending counselor.  They explained what that looks like in day to day work, what it takes to become one, and the legal, ethical and educational requirements of this work.  I appreciated that Jack and Diane each had a different lens through which they saw this important work.  With lots of handouts available, anyone at the workshop with the qualifications and wanting to do this as part of their career, now knows the next steps to take.

    Special Feature

    (If you would like your article published in our newsletter please email info@svccamft.org)

    Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)

    by

    Heather Cassandra Blessing, LMFT

    Well actually it is either Major Depressive Disorder or Bipolar Disorder with Seasonal Pattern.  Most who experience this disorder struggle during the fall and winter months.  In the coming weeks many will be coming into therapy because of there seasonal depression.  Even though many seem to struggle due to the lack of sunlight and actually find a full spectrum light therapy beneficial, others, like me suffer during the late spring, summer and early fall.  Here in Sacramento, was the first time I started experiencing SAD.  For me, the heat depresses me.  Once the temperature is above about 85 degrees, I feel like I have no energy, I am more irritable, I crave sweets, I struggle with being able to get to sleep and when I do sleep, it never feels like enough sleep. In simple terms I get depressed. 

    I had several therapists tell me that I couldn't have SAD because it was sunny out and that people with SAD have issues that are mitigated or solved with light therapy.  "It is a winter or lack of sunlight issue," one therapist told me.  So I looked it up and it says although it is not as common it can happen in the summer.  It is defined as:

    A.  There has been a regular temporal relationship between the onset of major depressive episodes in major depressive disorder and a particular time of the year. (Do not include cases in which there is an obvious affect of seasonally related psychosocial stressors like being unemployed every winter.)

    B.  For remissions (or a change from major depression to mania or hypomania) also occur at a characteristic time of year.

    C.  In the last 2 years, two major depressive episodes have occurred that demonstrate the temporal seasonal relationships defined above and no nonseasonal major depressive episodes have occurred during that same period.

    D.  Seasonal major depressive episodes (as described above) substantially outnumber the nonseasonal major depressive episodes that may have occurred over the individual's lifetime. 

    I am not a person who believes diagnosing a disorder or illness is always beneficial, but when my current therapist discussed it with me, we were able to start working on steps to help keep my seasonal depression in check.  I still get depressed, but now I do self-care to mitigate it.  I keep my house cooler, I limit the time I spend in the heat, I have several self care things I can do, and most of all, I have found things I enjoy during this time of year that allows me to change my frame of reference from being "stuck inside to avoid the heat" to "enjoying my time inside",

    I often remind myself of my SAD, when I start to dismiss a possible diagnosis of a client because they are not presenting in a way that I normally have seen the issue.  I always go back to the DSM and re-evaluate the criteria to make sure I am not missing something.  If any of my previous therapists had done this, I would have been able to get a handle on my SAD so much sooner.

    Copyright:
      2017 & 2018
    Reviewer:
     Heather Blessing, LMFT

    Review: A client told me about this series and I found it to be enlightening.  It is a dramatic tv series, but it covers so many interesting topics of class, race, empowerment and privilege.

    The series takes place at a predominately white Ivy League college with a diverse group of students.  It allows you to see many different sides of issues raised.
