We had a wonderful training last month with Tonya Elliott. Her talk was both informative and inspiring.
In invite you all to come out for the October meeting, where we will have a panel from the chapter membership as well as community presenting on the LGBTQ community. We hope this will present an opportunity for education and discussion.
Elections for the 2016 board are coming up. Please consider getting involved in the SVC-CAMFT board by submitting your name for election or appointment to our Administrative Assistant, Heather Blessing (email@example.com)
There are many opportunities to get involved. Patricia St James (president elect) will be taking over in January as the new president and welcomes your involvement. She is in the process of putting together a dynamic board!
Please keep November 6Th evening open for what should be a fun joint meeting with AAMFT. Details will be forthcoming.
Welcome to the section of the SVC-CAMFT newsletter, Legal Beagle written
by Darlene Davis, LMFT. The chapter thought it would be helpful to keep you
updated on new laws, legislative pursuits or actions, as well as ongoing legal
and ethical dilemmas we all face in our career as Licensed Marriage and Family
Therapists, Interns, and Trainees. Please feel free to ask questions that you
have and I will do my best to investigate and post your answer in the
newsletter. Please note that articles are based on information from CAMFT
and/or the BBS and have been researched to the best of my ability. This is not
meant to be legal advice. Please
contact CAMFT or Board of Behavioral Sciences for any legal matters you need
Great news SB 620 was signed by the
Governor. This bill revamps the current hours for licensure requirement for
LMFT’s and streamlines categories, known as “buckets” of hours needed!! Here
are some of the basics:
· Minimum of 1,750 hours of direct counseling with
individuals, groups, couples or families.
· Maximum of 1,250 hours of non-clinical experience. These
include categories we are all familiar with such as:
Writing clinical reports, progress notes,
Workshops, seminars, trainings,
Maximum of 750 hours of counseling and
supervisory contact for Trainees (no change from current law)
Minimum of 500 hours of experience in
treating couples, families, and children
What this bill has removed:
· Removes incentive for double counting hours for couples and
· Removes incentive for triple counting (up to 300 hrs) for
Overall this is great for streamlining
hours we can count toward licensure. Some of you that have been collecting
hours for a while might be questioning what to do with all those hours you
collected working with couples and families, and/or personal therapy which have
accumulated towards your 3000hrs. Good news, the BBS will allow a person who is
submitting hours between January 2016 and December 30, 2020 to alternatively
qualify under the experience requirements that were in place on January 1,
2015. You will be able to assess which requirements work best for you. What you
can’t do is mix the old requirements with the new requirements. This is a
milestone for MFT’s in recording all the hard work we do with and for clients
and have it count towards licensure!

September Presentation Summary
Cultural Competency and Best Practices for Native American and Buddhist Clients (2 CEUs)
By: Tonya Elliot-Walker & Carlos Flores Jr., MS
Native American Clients
TONYA IS COMPLETING HER PhD IN "UNDERSTANDING TRAUMA IN NATIVE AMERICAN FEMALE DRUMMERS!
Starting with a beautiful song entitled, "South Wind Brings New Things" & using a Rattle, Tonya presented a multifaceted approach to understanding & respecting the appropriate needs of NA clients. Often, the need by third party payers & evidence based practices leaves Clinicians to choose behaviorally based models. Although CBT & DBT are well researched & implemented by all levels of Clinicians, they aren't always helpful to meet the needs of evidence-based minorities.
The focus of the cultural life of the NA client is more readily served by researching and incorporating their Rituals, Customs and World Views. NA clients generally WILL NOT come to see a "dominant culture" practitioner unless/until every element of their own culture is exhausted!
Tonya utilizes Existential Theory as part of her Integrative Framework. She finds it blends with many cultural paradigms AND still allows for some focus on Behavioral Changes. Values such as understanding existential guilt & anxiety, recognizing meaning in suffering & authenticity, as well as striving to master "the concepts of the Four Worlds," social, psychological, physical & spiritual. Some Tribes' World View recognizes the concept of wholeness utilizing the Medicine Wheel & the Four Directions, (N,S,E,W) as a foundation which is quite similar to the concepts of our Four Worlds.
In the 1800's ,NA Orphanages, called Mush Halls, consisted of, mandatory short, hair for all, watching people be killed, then put in large graves & creating alienation among family members. They were required to sing, "one little, two little, three little Indians when they counted the dead along the trails. This cumulative emotional & psyche wounding has persisted across generations
Hitler used this type of Genocide as his model for the concentration camps in WWII. These types of characteristics, stripping an individual of his/her identity, cultural values & family members, are often seen in Cults or relationships riddled with Domestic Violence & other Abuses.
Four final bits of information: 1. Sins & Good deeds of the NA culture are passed down for 7 generations. 2. English is Linear, Cherokee is primarily Verbs. (More Connecting.) 3.There wasn't ONE Trail of Tears, there were NINE!
4. For more information about Multicultural Counseling, Tonya recommends you make frequent visits to AMCD's Website, located at www.amcdaca.org.
YOUR WORST ENEMY CANNOT HARM YOU AS MUCH AS YOUR OWN UNGUARDED THOUGHTS--BUDDHA
Carlos presented his personal experience as a Buddhist Monk ((x2). Culturally, it is a huge plus to be an Ordained Monk. He began immersing himself into Buddhism 10 years ago. He spends a considerable amount of time in a monastery located in Elk Grove. He was originally a part of the Catholic Religion, however, realizes Buddhism is more a way of life, rather simply a religion. His son is a Junior Monk. Carlos provided 2 pictures of himself in his robe & 1 of his son behind him in his robe! Buddhist culture is male-dominated. The Buddhist Monk follows 10 precepts, Nuns follow 8 precepts & the lay person follows 5 precepts. Male Monks ordain before Female Monks.
Buddhist Culture has four Tenets. (1) Family Oriented (2) Religion (3) Routine & (4) Beliefs The Buddhist Culture automatically make provisions available to each other , No Matter Where They Are! The Buddhist client will generally NOT come to a "Dominant Culture" Therapist unless he/she has attempted to obtain & request assistance from their own culture. Monks don't do counseling like "we" do.
The Noble Eightfold Path includes (1) Right Speech (2) Right Action (3) Right Livelihood (4) Right Effort (5) Right Mindfulness (6) Right Concentration (7) Right View (8) Right Intention. Following these Paths may lead a Buddhist to Nirvana.
The lay person follows 5 precepts, while the Monks follow 10. There are also Nuns in the Culture. They follow 8 precepts. They generally get up @ 4 AM, meditate and chant until 6 AM & between 10-10:30 they eat breakfast.
Repetition in threes is also a ritual that helps Carlos in many instances. If a dog is barking he states, "dog barking 3 times." A great example was, "when a driver cuts me off, I say driver cut me off 3 times and I DON'T LOOK AT THE DRIVER."
Carlos states, " At some point I lose my name." This is done because the spirits may not know him as Carlos & may become confused. After disrobing, he returns to Carlos. Males are also asked, "Are you a Male." "Are you free from slavery."
Shaving one's head is a not "requirement' of Buddhism, it is a Belief. Carlos does choose to shave his head. He has spent several summers in Burma, in Summer Camps, working with young men who have shown an interest in Buddhism & becoming Monks. These experiences bring him both pleasure & peace.
Carlos was born in El Salvador and moved to the United States at the age of 9. At that time, English was his second language. Both his Father & Grandfather were taken hostage, which has created a deep impact on him. His Grandfather was released due to his advanced age, while his Father eventually escaped imprisonment.
From the onset, Carlos is calm & gentle in his speech and movement. He emphasizes that people might consider paying attention to everything around them. He used the gym we were in as an example, pointing out such things as the Basketball Net which leads to the Balls in the corner & so on. This is represented in Vipassana Meditation. (1) Mindfulness of Breathing (2) Object Meditation (3) Noting
Everything tells a story, often sequential in nature, which is why observation & focus are so important. Concentration is enhanced and the mind is made stronger with regular meditation. A part of a main Tenet, everything around us is either doing something + or -.
There are Four Noble Truths: (1) Suffering (2) the origin of Suffering (3) the Cessation of Suffering (4)the Path Leading to the Cessation of Suffering. These are a foundation for wellness.
The Three Virtues are known as (1) Sila (Morality) (2) Samadhi (Concentration) (3) Panna (Wisdom)
There are Four Attachments (1) Positive (2) Negative (3) Direct (4) Indirect Carlos does use different interventions such as CBT & Solution Focused, especially when doing Hospice Work. Hospice has Five Steps: (1) Deadline (2) Attachments (3) Process (4) CBT (5) The Last Thought
Karma, the essence of Cause & Effect, reminds us that we are creating as we speak. Some of our Karma is dissipated quickly in this life, other Karma carries on to the next Life. Karma can change by doing Good Deeds with a goal to get to Nirvana!! It is possible that if you reach Nirvana, you will not return to this Life!! Summary by Helen Coupe, LMFT

Cultural competency with LGBTQIA clients? By: Alexis V. Clemons, MFT Registered Intern
A few days ago, I was enjoying my
Saturday morning, and decided to check my personal e-mails after a hectic week
as an intern at a community mental health agency. I received an invitation to
the SVC-CAMFT October monthly training, featuring an LGBTQIA panel of
professionals with experience working with clients from these communities. As I
began reading the workshop information, I immediately felt offended. As fast as
my uncoordinated fingers could type, I shot out an e-mail to the SVC Board,
expressing my concerns regarding the language that offended me. Luckily, Board
members were quick to address my concerns, and an apology was given to me, as
well as to others that expressed concerns about the invitation; and the
terminology in the invite was swiftly changed to be more culturally sensitive.
quick action was taken to address my concerns, as well as the concerns of others,
there was still a sour taste in my mouth. It just didn’t seem like enough. I
was starting to believe that I was fighting a neverending battle. Is cultural
competency with people from the LGBTQIA communities even possible? Is this an
unobtainable ideal? How do you become
culturally competent with LGBTQIA clients? How do you become culturally
competent with anyone?
questions got me thinking about a quote that I really love by Dr. Maya Angelou.
“Do the best you can until you know better. Then, when you know better, do
better.” Dr. Angelou’s words are not only inspiring, motivating, and quite
lovely; they’re also realistic. Realistically, becoming anything is a learning process. Becoming culturally competent is not a one or two lesson
educational process by any means. The process is life-long. As a therapist, you
can help yourself become more
culturally competent, by doing the best you can, and then when you know better,
do better. This seemingly unobtainable ideal becomes obtainable through efforts
such as continuing to seek out
knowledge & enhancing skills; applying
the information & skills; and learning from past mistakes and offenses. I
believe that we have a responsibility to our clients, our community, and our profession,
to continuously strive to increase our multicultural
Culturally Sensitive Language in an Ever Changing World By: Heather Cassandra
The irony of this article is that I had already written it,
when I made a mistake and did not properly proof read our October event
announcement.So this article is
even more relevant than it was before. I want to start off by stating that what
is deemed culturally sensitive can change.
Lesbian I am a lesbian, which means I am mostly sexually attracted
to women.Some lesbians (and) like
spelling women as womyn or womxn so as to not have "man" as part of
the word.Unless a lesbian labels
or identifies herself, it is not appropriate in general conversation to put a
label on them.In general you
should also not state someone's sexuality without prior permission.There are many terms used the LGBTQIA
community.Tomboy/Tomboi is meant
as a lesbian who likes to do culturally "male" things (although many
would question why those things are considered "male").Butch is another common term, which
identifies a lesbian that not only likes doing "typical male" things
but also dresses more masculine than feminine.Then there is the term femme which is a lesbian who dresses
more feminine.Inside lesbian
culture, femme's often complain about being invisiblebecause they assumed to be straight.Now comes an interesting issue
When discussing a lesbian couple it is not appropriate to
try and figure out who is "the man" or "the woman" in the
relationship as the dynamics can be fluid.This thought process has caused quite a split in thought as
to whether the butch-femme dynamic is appropriate.Some of the community find the concept of the butch-femme
(masculine-feminine) relationship dynamic to be outdated and created by a
patriarchal society and others in the community find the dynamic wonderful and
actually look to create the dynamic with another.There is no rule that femmes cannot date femmes or butches
cannot date butches or any other concept.Just like heterosexuals, everyone has their own attractions.Each culture within the LGBTQIA
subculture has its own terms.So
if you have a client who identifies as LGBTQIA it is important to ask the
meaning of the terms they use.
Gay It is not culturally sensitive to use the word homosexual
anymore.As with all parts of the
LGBTQIA culture some prefer to remain in the closet or not disclose their
private information.Also as
important is to not assume based on stereotypes.There are many men that may seem effeminate that are not gay
or bisexual, just as a man that someone would term as a "jock" or
"just a normal guy" (whatever that means), is gay.Dragqueens are (usually gay) male
performers that impersonate females, often embellishing female
dragqueens are gay, so it is best not to make assumptions.Queens are often very flamboyant gay
men, but unless you know the person and have an understanding to how they label
themselves, it is inappropriate to just point out that someone is a Queen or is
being a Queen.While there are a
lot of stereotypes and subcultures in the gay community, if you are not in that
subculture, it is inappropriate to use many of the terms.If you have a client who uses
terminology that you are not familiar with, ask.As with all cultures and subcultures (not just LGBTQIA), our
clients will have a unique view of their culture.
Bisexual Bisexual has been a term that has a history of negative
stereotypes in both the LGBTQIA culture and the public at large.Often those in the LGBTQIA community
will call bisexuals "fence sitters" or other such terms believing
that they just cannot make up their mind.Others consider bisexual people as unable to be monogamous and just
wanting to have "sex with anything that moves".Both of these ideas are a negative
bisexuals just people who are attracted to people and they don't pay attention
to gender, others consider bisexuals as more like in the middle of the Kinsey
Scale.Plenty of research has been
done on fluid sexuality and many people consider themselves bisexual if they
have had a relationship with both sexes (not at the same time).It is important to look at our biases
and stereotypes when we look at sexual orientation or gender and realize what
is right for us and how we define ourselves, is not necessarily right for
someone else nor how they would define themselves.Again it is important to ask people how they identify or
relate to such labels.
Transgender I want to start off by stating that what is deemed
culturally sensitive can change.One of the most obvious terms that is still is hotly debated is
transsexual vs. transgender.Many
of my friends who transitioned more than a decade ago use the term
transsexual.I just discussed it
with one and she said transgender bothers her because she has always identified
her gender as female so therefore using the prefix trans and then gender would
have meant she changed genders but she did not.She states that she is a transsexual woman because what she
changed was her sex.She had sexual
reassignment surgery where they changed her sex from male to female therefore
she is a transsexual woman.On the
flip side many others feel that when you use the word sex as in transsexual, it
alludes to there being a sexual issue when this has nothing to do with sex (as
in the act) or sexual orientation.They feel they are a transgender person as they are expressing their
gender in a different way than they were born and therefore they are a
When working with the transgender community it is common to
her the term cisgender woman or cisgender man.the cis pre-fix means on the same side so I am a cisgender
female or cigender woman as in the body I was born with matches my identity and
my gender expression (also female).By using the term cisgender it automatically puts transgender people and
cisgender people on the same level as you are basically saying someone who has
the same gender as their body and someone who has a different gender than their
body.Otherwise you are phrasing
things in terms as a subculture.For example, if you are discussing whether transgender students can use
a certain bathroom, you have separated out a subclass of students rather than
talking about bathroom that are for cisgender students and transgender
students.Often used instead of
cisgender is non-transgender.
Another recent debate is the terms gender non-conforming vs.
gender expansive.Both mean the
same thing - that the person does not match our "binary" system of
how we define people as male or female.The idea of a "Tom Boy" is considered gender non-conforming or
gender expansive.So the reason
for the debate about the terms - non-conforming gives the idea that we should
conform to certain standards and that this person is refusing to conform
whereas expansive means that it is expanding over the current definition and
does not have as negative connotation as non-conforming.
Pronouns - it is important to know which pronouns someone
feels are correct for them.I have
on my intake sheets in my private practice the lines:
I do not give options (like check marks or boxes) just a
place for them to write in what they feel is relevant to them.Some pronouns are like She\Her and He\Him and other pronouns
are They\Them or Ze\Zim.A pronoun
is an identifier and just like a name it helps identify and define the person so it is important to ask someone how
they want to be identified.
What is most important is to ask a person what words they
wish to use and how they describe their life and self.
A resource to use is http://www.glaad.org/reference/transgender
for up to date terms and what is considered culturally sensitive at
present.However, always remember
that there are generational differences and regional differences in many terms
to when in doubt ask.
Queer/Questioning Queer is a cultural sensitivity quagmire.The original definition of queer was
something strange or an oddity.So
when it became something people labeled people in the LGBTQIA community, it was
considered derogatory.But as with
many words, some of the LGBTQIA community has taken the term back and it can
mean gay or it can mean somewhere in the middle or fluid.Such as someone may say they are
genderqueer, meaning they either do not wish to define their gender or they are
neither male nor female but somewhere in the middle.Others use queer to describe their sexual orientation
meaning cannot be defined.Questioning is of course anyone
who exploring their gender and/or sexuality.Some have found that they feel their gender or sexual
orientation is fluid and may change so they are questioning where they are at
Intersexed What used to called hermaphrodite is now termed intersexed.There are at least 16 known conditions
from chromosomal to issues with hormones which a person is born with a
reproductive or sexual anatomy that doesn’t seem to fit the typical definitions
of female or male.Whether the
genitalia is noticeably different or whether puberty or infertility diagnoses
the condition, being intersexed creates an issue of the person not being able
to be defined as a binary (male/female) sex.Some may look exactly like a particular sex, but internally
or chromosomally not be that sex.
Asexual Someone who has no sexual attraction to anyone.This is not celibacy as celibacy or abstinence
as both of those are a choice, to be asexual is to not be sexually attracted to
any sex, so they are not gay, lesbian, heterosexual or bisexual.
As I have said throughout this article, the most important
thing is to ask the person you are working with how they define themselves and
what words, pronouns, labels and cultures they feel part of.We must as always treat our clients like
the unique individuals they are.
