IE-CAMFT First Annual Authors’ Gathering

Where: 1898 Business Center Drive, San Bernardino, CA 92408

IE-CAMFT is proud to welcome both Authors and Program Providers to display information on their products, (books, CEU trainings, etc.).   We are excited to see the body of work our local clinicians are producing. You may want to consider adding to your library, and/or holiday shopping for others.

Who will be there:

Carol Adkisson: Written from the perspective of a patient and clinician, Recovering My Life – A personal bariatric story is a raw reflection of weight loss using bariatric surgery as a tool.  The book explores the emotional reasons for compulsive over eating and reveals the rarely shared truth from this writer’s perspective.

The companion book, Recovering My Life – Your Story – guides the reader through the process of discovering how their relationship with food negatively affected every aspect of their life. The workbook/journal brings them face to face with how they used food to mask their emotional brokenness. 

Relationship Café Presents:  Your Passion  ~  Your Vision  ~  Your Life

Have you ever felt as though you are on autopilot, floating through life with no sense of direction?  Do you have a difficult time setting goals?  Or, do you feel as though you are not accomplishing the goals you have set and aren’t where you’d like to be in your life?  If you answered yes to any of these questions, then this class is for you.

Join us for this 4-day class, where attendees will learn how to explore, plan, create, and live their passion.

In this interactive, hands on class, attendees will:

·      Identify core values

·      Discover areas that are potentially blocking them from setting and/or reaching goals

·      Set manageable goals for 2018

·      Create a Vision Board, a visual representation of goals for the year, and

·      Develop a plan for reaching these goals.

Stop by our table at the Books & Programs Fair at the November 17, 2017 IE-CAMFT meeting, or email us at to find out how this class can benefit you and the clients you serve.

Lolita M. Domingue : Emotional Transformation Therapy is an interactive ecological psychotherapy originated by Steven R. Vazquez, Ph.D. in the 1990’s. It is a synthesis of attachment-based interpersonal therapy that is radically amplified by precise visual brain stimulation where the light enters the eyes and photosensitive cells convert light into neural impulses. Many of these impulses affect parts of the brain beyond the visual cortex to control thoughts, emotions, and physical symptoms. By selecting precise forms of visual brain stimulation, the neural impulses are directed to rapidly change the parts of the brain responsible for the client’s disturbance.
