December President's Message

10 Dec 2020 6:24 PM | Nancy Orr (Administrator)

Here we are, the holidays are moving forward.  If you didn’t attend our Holiday Party, we missed you!  Yes virtual is not ideal, yet we had a fun time, including food provided by the board via Grubhub Cards, an Ugly Sweater Contest, Virtual Games that I plan on playing with my children and my staff during this holiday season.

As our Covid-19 numbers continue to spike, and our state has shut down even more, it is very important to keep in mind self-care as a clinician.  We can’t be fully present with our clients without doing our own work.  I don’t think this can be said enough, please stay safe!  As a board we are responding to these unprecedented times, with interesting virtual trainings, and we are in the process of creating a process for streaming our trainings, we will let you know when our new system is unveiled.  

As we continue our virtual presentations, the process is easy. You can take part from the comfort of your home or office and even in your PJs if you like. Please do sign in early. You must be present until the end. CEU time requirements are in place.  Also, you need to complete the seminar evaluation form in order to get your certificate.  The certificates are emailed in batches, so the earlier you complete yours, the sooner you will receive it, as most people submit theirs right after the seminar.

Our website ( provides some great suggestions to make your experience optimal.   

Feeling compelled to be a presenter? Please feel free to offer your presentation proposals.  You can use this link to offer your suggestions.

Thank you, Lisa Larson, for your presentation on Brainspotting: Part Two.  Lynn Flewelling was used as a wonderful demonstration.  As a Brainspotter myself, this modality has been effective for healing and offers help for increased resourcing in both positive and creative places.  If you missed her presentation, as mentioned previously, we are hoping in the near future to give you access to the recording and obtain CEU’s.  If you have any questions, do not hesitate to email us:

Our upcoming training is on Consensual Non-Monogamy.  I’m sure that title may have grabbed your attention.  This virtual event is on January 22nd, 2021, from 9-11 am.  Of course, this event is offered free for IE-CAMFT members and $20.00 for guests.  This event, presented by Dr. Ryan Witherspoon, Ph.D., is bound to be booked out as it is an interesting topic. For Information about his presentation and to RSVP, visit our website event page.  Learn more about Dr. Witherspoon’s work at  Stay tuned for our video interview to be available online via Facebook and Linked-in.

We are also looking for volunteers and potential community and future board members.  If you are interested, please feel free to contact us as  As a member of this board for a number of years, I have found this to be an invaluable experience, and we hope that you too would consider this as a positive season in your life.

Thank you for continuing to support IE-CAMFT, please share about our trainings, we look forward to seeing you soon!

Happy Holidays!

IE-CAMFT President
