Featured Event

Introduction to Systemic Affair Recovery (SART)
Presented by  Dr. Talal H. Alsaleem

October 23, 2020, 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM

This is a Zoom Event

Completing this workshop will expand your understanding of the process of healing and introduce you to the clinical tools you need to help your clients recover from the trauma of infidelity. The knowledge-base you will gain from this workshop, as well as the clinical interventions you will learn, about are based on extensive clinical work with couples dealing with infidelity.

President's Message

It’s hard to believe we are seven months into Covid-19. This season has changed much of our work as clinicians. Covid-compliant businesses have become a normal way of doing business. Masks are now necessary by both therapists and clients in most counties. I wonder how you are managing your own choices with this. Have you moved your practice to tele-health, or are you still seeing clients in person with precautions? I myself moved to a hybrid, depending on the comfortability of my staff. Each client has their special requests to create that connection for the healing process to begin.

Of course we have been dealing with so many difficult struggles during this time. As was discussed in Therapy Amidst Chaos, the racial protests and difficulties are continuing. It breaks my heart to see this remain an issue in this country, with so many of us children of immigrants from all over the world. And yet this is very real and needs to be addressed in all areas.

Finally we have had so many fires across this state. People needing to leave their homes in a hurry not knowing if they will find a home when they come back. I realize that this is fire season, but it seems that everyday you here of another fire and someone listing they are safe.  

So many different difficulties that we are dealing with all at once. Not to mention globally because some of these problems are a global problem. Healing is so necessary and mental health is needed more than ever. I feel the stigma in many cultures has lessened. I can’t tell you how many times I have heard, I have never been to therapy, how does this work. That is a good sign to me that the admission of the need for help is a great first step.  

I want to thank
Judy McGehee, LMFT and Sherry Shockey-Pope, LMFT  for presenting Suicide Risk Assessment & Intervention on September 25th, 9-3:30 pm.  Their presentation was comprehensive, very informative, and we couldn’t have asked for better resources to deal with this serious issue.  

Our next presentation is Introduction to Systemic Affair Recovery (SART)
presented by Dr. Talal H. Alsaleem on Friday, October 23, from 9:00am - 11:00am.

Look for our upcoming interview on Facebook live in the next week.

IE-CAMFT is not only here to offer you education, but also to allow us to network among our peers. We invite you to come early to our event and get to know who is joining you at this training.  

We are looking for volunteers and future board members. If you are interested, please contact us as iecamft@gmail.com.  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! We look forward to seeing you soon, and please share about our trainings.

At Our Last Meeting

Suicide Risk Assessment and Intervention
Presented by Judy McGehee, LMFT & Sherry Shockey-Pope, LMFT

September 25, 2020

Therapists often feel unprepared and unequipped to deal with the challenges of treating a suicidal client. Research shows that often that client ends up being passed from therapist to therapist without ever receiving optimal care or even the basics of the standard of care.
