Letter from the Board

August 25, 2018

Greetings {Contact_First_Name} {Contact_Last_Name},  

I hope that you all have had a relaxing and enjoyable summer. I am glad to report that, despite the heat and the temptation to enjoy the great outdoors, the SVC-CAMFT board remained very productive in the last couple of months. On the programs front, we had the pleasure of learning, “How to Be supportive of Clients who are Trans-gendered" back in June from Heather Blessing and Joe Borders. In July, we had a successful, two-day Law and ethics workshop,  which was facilitated by the Amazing Dr. Ben Cladwell.

As we near the last quarter of the year, we are in the process of finalizing the strategic plan for 2019. Board members and committee chairs have been working very hard at planning next year's initiatives. We hope that with your support, we can grow our membership and expand the services that we offer to you and our community. This is also the time of year that we recruit and interview  new candidates for the SVC-CAMFT board.  So, if you or someone you know is interested in a very unique and rewarding volunteering opportunity with the board, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me directly, or to any other board members.  Feel free to ask us about our volunteering experience and the available opportunities most suited for your skill set, interests, and availability.

Lastly, don’t forget to register for the workshop, “Family Court/Forensic Mental Health Work,” presented by Jack D. Love and Diane Wasznicky. The workshop was designed to provide an overview of child custody legal forensic work which includes court-involved therapy, mediation and custody evaluation. This work is an important, interesting, and fulfilling opportunity for licensed mental health professionals to expand their private practice and their earning ability. Mental health professionals often serve as “the voice of the child” in family law proceedings.  This area of practice is an important way to help families and children in crisis by providing the court with accurate and helpful information on which to base decisions.  Before the workshop the 3000 club will have their **Free** Pre-Licensed 3000 Club Workshop - Understanding & Effectively Managing Suicide Risk: Fundamentals for the Systemic Therapist by David Rogers, LMFT.

Best Regards,

Talal H. Alsaleem

News from the BBS

We often receive calls from people that have questions on becoming licensed.  Many of these answers can be found here.  https://www.bbs.ca.gov/pdf/publications/mft_faq.pdf  This document was updated April of this year so it has all of the recent changes.


 












 

Ethics Corner

For 2018, in each newsletter we will be featuring different CAMFT ethics codes and looking deeper at how to implement them into your clinical practice.

This month we are looking at fees for therapeutic services. Whether you are a trainee, registered associate, or licensed for 20+ years, there must be a discussion of fees for the service you provide prior to the start of services, per BBS regulations.

CAMFT’s ethics code further describes our ethical responsibility:

“CAMFT Code of Ethics - Section 9.3 DISCLOSURE OF FEES: Marriage and Family Therapists disclose, in advance, their fees and the basis upon which they are computed, including, but not limited to, charges for canceled or missed appointments and any interest to be charged on unpaid balances, at the beginning of treatment and give reasonable notice of any changes in fees or other charges.”

CAMFT has written several articles discussing fee disclosure. Some key things to be aware of:

  •       Fees are to be discussed with the client at the initiation of treatment, and it’s strongly recommended that written disclosure is provided;
  •       Know and understand the health insurance benefits your clients may use, including limitations for out-of-network services, or services provided by a trainee or registered associate (which may not be covered by health insurance benefits);
  •       Disclose fees for missed appointments, arriving late for appointments, how clients will be notified of increases to rates.

For more detailed analysis, please refer to the following CAMFT articles:  “10 Reminders for Therapists About Fees” and “On Ethics: Avoiding Problems with Fees, Payment Arrangements, and Health Insurance.





 June Workshop Summary

How to be Supportive of Clients who are Transgender
presented by Heather Blessing, LMFT and Joe Borders

(2CEs)

The topic of being supportive of and working transgender individuals is certainly a complex topic, even so, Heather and Joe pulled off an amazing job.  They hit high points, and the low points of developing skills for supporting Transgender people and their spouses, parents, siblings, and family members.  They started with a poignant video that expressed the pain and struggle many transgender youth experience daily. They described the differences between intersex and transgender, and introduced terminology often used for different gender identities under the umbrella term “trans” or “transgender.”  A discussion of sexuality, sex, and gender helped to clarify these challenges of many clients.  Requirements for hormone and surgery letters, ages and stages, intersex people, family members, school, and support systems, were all included topics in this training.  Additionally, Heather and Joe covered school safety, access to safe bathrooms, and difficulties many youth experience attending school while transgender.  Also, they covered parenting around gender, gender authenticity, confusion between sexual orientation and gender identity many parents [and people] experience, WPATH requirements of informed consent, and the value of working with an interdisciplinary team when supporting transgender and intersex clients.  They also provided a helpful list of resources, including WPATH, a go to for all professionals who work with transgender and intersex people.  long list of resources for ensuring approaches for transgender clients.  This is a heavy difficult topic to cover in such a short time, but these two presenters did an excellent job of giving information in a straight forward way, keeping open communication and inviting questions which made learning accessible for the attendees.

SEPTEMBER FREE 3000 CLUB WORKSHOP

Topic: Understanding & Effectively Managing Suicide Risk: Fundamentals for the Systemic Therapist

Workshop Information:  
The need to effectively understand, manage, and document suicide risk is increasing at an exponential rate.  On September 1, 2017, the California Governor signed Assembly Bill (AB) 89, requiring psychologists to get trained in suicide prevention. It is speculated that the same will eventually be required of Marriage and Family Therapists. How comfortable are you when a client alludes to experiencing suicidal ideation? This lecture will cover the phenomenology of suicide; how to gather the right information; and developing/documenting a solid risk formulation that sufficiently justifies a specific outcome.  Case examples will demonstrate how systemic principles can be utilized to collaboratively promote short and long-term client safety across a continuum of care.

Although this training is specialized, it also typically meets standards necessary for clinical licensure.

Workshop Information:

Child custody legal forensic work includes court-involved therapy, mediation and custody evaluation. This work is an important, interesting, and fulfilling opportunity for licensed mental health professionals to expand their private practice and their earning ability. Mental health professionals often serve as “the voice of the child” in family law proceedings. This area of practice is an important way to help families and children in crisis by providing the court with accurate and helpful information on which to base decisions. Helping families navigate custody arrangements and finding solutions to meet the child's needs can be rewarding both professionally and financially. Because there is currently a shortage of trained professionals providing these specialized services, the Sacramento Valley Child Custody Mediators and Evaluators Group and the Sacramento County Bar Association Family Law Section have collaborated to design this presentation to help interested mental health professionals learn more about the intersection of family law and behavioral health, and about ways to effectively include this area of specialization in your practice.

    Special Feature

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

    Grief and Pending Death

    by

    Heather Cassandra Blessing, LMFT

    One of my dear friends was recently diagnosed with cancer, Pancreatic Cancer to be more precise.   I am helping her put many of her affairs in order and helping her move.  While I have been with her, many of her friends and family have visited or helped out.  I have noticed that they have been unintentionally dismissing my friend's feelings, experience and reality.  I know they are doing it to make themselves feel better and feel like they need to make her feel better, but it actually makes my friend feel worse.

    For example, not long after the diagnosis, when she realized she could not go back to work, would have to leave her home of 26 years and not sure what she was to do and had to face she probably only has about a year or so left, when a friend asked how she was, she stated, "I wish I would have never woken up.  I just don't want to wake up anymore. " Her friend thinking she was being helpful said something like, "Oh, don't say that, things will get better."   When my friend said something about probably only being around a year, another of her friends told her, "You never know, I have known people with cancer that live 10 years after their diagnosis."

    I get what these friends were trying to do, they were trying to make themselves feel better by making my friend feel better.  Discussing and dealing with death is uncomfortable.  It is hard.  I know as I have been dealing with it.  This is not something you can just put a positive spin on and make someone feel better.  Sometimes you have to sit in the feelings with a friend and just be there for them and hear them. 

    Things you can do are responses like this: "I don't think I would want to wake up either.  This is really hard and overwhelming stuff.  Is there anything I can do to help?  Do you want to talk about it?"  or "It must be tough to wrap your brain around having limited time in this life.  How are you doing?"  In most cases someone who just got diagnosed with a terminal illness, they feel like they have lost all control, so see where you can give them some control while handling some of the overwhelming issues.  For example, my friend needed to have a garage sale.  We helped her put things out for the garage sale.  We let her set the prices and talk to people and sell how she wanted.  We just made it physically easier on her by moving the stuff and putting it out.  I also ask for guidelines - "What files do you want kept?  How do you want to handle these things?"  and then do the physical work of sorting and ask questions when I am not sure.

    Most importantly, allow them their feelings and their perception of reality.  They need time to process and remember everyone grieves and processes differently.  Let them do it and don't try to make it all better, some things cannot be made better.  Some things are just painful and hard.  Get support for your own grief.  I increased the amount of therapy I was getting so I could keep processing my grief and issues of being overwhelmed while still being the safe place for my friend to cry, yell, scream, complain, process, and laugh.  I ask myself before saying anything harsh or trying to correct my friend, is this really going to benefit her.  Most of the time the answer is no.  It doesn't help if I were to remind her that she said she would do something and she didn't.  It doesn't help if I get upset or frustrated with her.  I know she doesn't mean to because she is just going through a lot of stuff right now.

    By holding space for my friend and whatever she is going through and dealing with my own stuff away from her, it has helped us become closer and enjoy the time we have together more.  It also has deepened our relationship to being much more authentic than it ever was because she can see that I can hold that space for her feelings and she doesn't have to filter things for fear of my reactions.

    I read this to my friend and she said this is exactly what she needs.

    NEW GROUP ANNOUNCEMENT

    WOMEN AND AGING, new group for older women who want to explore the many facets of aging in a supportive environment. Group will meet weekly in Midtown Sacramento, $60 per 1 1/2 hour meeting, 8 week commitment. Call Sally Weiler, 916-446-6257.

     GROUP: DIVORCE: HEALING AND MOVING ON

    My group, Divorce: Healing and Moving On, focuses on envisioning what members want their lives to be like so they can move forward and create the life and relationships they want. This group is a safe place to share these feelings without fear of judgment.

    In this support group, members will gain strategies, learn to cope, and begin to heal by relating to others in similar situations. One of the stages of healing is working on the harm that was done in the relationship as well as being accountable for one’s part in the dynamic. The focus is placed on the individual and their relationship with themselves.

    Divorce is the starting point and our goal for the group is to transform who members will become. They will meet people who want the right kind of support so you can get through this part of your separation together.

    Group Details:

    ● San Francisco Group: 5:30pm - 7:00pm Tuesdays

    ● Intake therapy session required to join
