MAY President’s Message

So often clients report a disturbance (sadness, shame, guilt, fear, anger) in their body, with an associated image of an emotional part. (e.g. a fetus, young child, teenager, an adult, "saboteur"). During this type of episode the emotional part is triggered (moved) from long term memory into working memory. It is while in working memory that the emotional part can be soothed — and when it is soothed, the client reports feeling less disturbed. This is a powerful moment, and for me, hearing of such powerful moments is why I love doing therapy.

When I presented at an IE-CAMFT training many years ago, I was excited to share what I hoped would be used to bring about such transformative moments. I felt inspired and hoped the audience felt the same. New information, presented by thoughtful professionals who find joy in soothing those parts of the professional mind that yearn for knowledge, that's what IE-CAMFT training/CEU opportunities are all about.

And when the presentation is over, several past CEU opportunities are available ON DEMAND on our website at Look for ON DEMAND LIBRARY and more will be available soon. Don't Delay in checking these out, since all available presentations are free of charge for members (for now)!! Questions? Don't hesitate to reach out to (

I love being part of IE-CAMFT. It makes me feel that I'm part of the big picture, and that keeps me hopeful!

Paul Velen, MS, LMFT

Suggestions for Using Zoom

  1. Download and install the Zoom application ahead of time.

  2. Log in at least 15-20 minutes early and sign in. That way you have time if a problem arises.

  3. Have only one browser window open during the conference call. We don't need to see your email, and you will have a better connection.

  4. Make sure you are in a quiet place, and if you can't be, or your dog starts barking or your child starts to cry, please mute yourself. In fact, everyone will be able to hear better if everyone but the presenter mutes themselves.

  5. Wear earbuds or headphones as that helps with unwanted feedback and makes everyone's experience better.

  6. If the quality of the video becomes a challenge, you can stop the video and continue with audio only.
