    LA-CAMFT Roundtable:
    Anti-racism as a Movement, Not a Moment

    “Anti-Racism as a Movement, Not a Moment” will be a space to come together as a therapeutic community to discuss and address racism and discrimination. We are striving to collaborate on what LA CAMFT can do to be an actively and overtly anti-racist community. 

    Main objectives will be to:
    1. Listen, learn, and share how racism and discrimination affect us as therapists, in our work throughout the therapeutic community.
    2. Identify needed supports and trainings that we as therapists and as a therapeutic community want to see addressed.
    3. Identify action steps to actively and overtly practice Anti-Racism within LA CAMFT and the broader therapeutic community.
    If YOU want to be a part of the MOVEMENT to increase Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, join us at this event, so that TOGETHER we can find ways to positively impact our therapeutic community. We want to hear your voice. Be a part of the CHANGE you want to see in LA CAMFT and in the world.

      Pandemic Loss  The Surreal World of Grief:
      How It’s Impacting Our Clients and Our Own Grief

      Debi Jenkins Frankle, LMFT

      Debi Jenkins Frankle, LMFT, will provide a framework for understanding the multi-layered nature of pandemic- related loss, the agony of anticipatory grief, and the invalidation of disenfranchised losses. She will explore the need to re-examine how we define loss, recognize grief, deal with the inability to participate in traditional mourning rituals, and support our clients while experiencing our own grief. This presentation will help clinicians identify the seven areas of our clients’ lives that are impacted by grief: Cognitive, Physical, Emotional, Spiritual, Social, Family, and Work. Recognizing specifically how grief can show up, we can begin to name and normalize the experience for our clients. Join us to learn how to best help our clients and ourselves regain our footing in the surreal world of pandemic loss.

      At the end of this presentation, participants will be able to:
      1. Recognize and understand the grief, mourning, loss, and trauma many people are experiencing during the current pandemic 
      2. Identify and work with the symptoms and signs of grief in seven areas of functioning: Cognitive, Physical, Emotional, Spiritual, Social, Family, and Work.

      Debi Jenkins Frankle, LMFT, is an expert in the field of grief, working for over 25 years with clients suffering from lifetimes of loss. She and husband, Mark Frankle, LMFT, are the co-founders of the Calabasas Counseling and Grief Recovery Center. Debi is the founder of Private Practice Grief Workshops and Trainings for Mental Health Professionals, as well as the Private Practice Grief therapists FB group. She has provided Pandemic Loss and Grief trainings to executives, and was a national trainer for The Grief Recovery Institute. She is a past president of San Fernando Valley chapter of CAMFT, a past committee co-chair of the Crisis Response Network for SFV-CAMFT, and is a member of the Association for Death Education (ADEC).

      Sexual Health Considerations with LGBTQIA+ Clients:
      Implications for Client Safety, Sexual Satisfaction,
      and Overall Well-Being

      Dr. Harpreet Malla

      Due to social and cultural stigmatization, issues of sexual health that arise in the LGBTQIA+ population are at times overlooked or ignored.  Clinicians and clients are unsure of how to bring up or address these topics in session. This presentation will show how in-depth discussions, using methods such as the PLISSIT Model (Permission, Limited Information, Specific Suggestions, and Intensive Therapy), can provide insight into a client’s safety, sexual satisfaction, and overall well-being  especially when working with couples. We will review and explore the clinical implications of recent National Institute of Health (NIH) and World Health Organization (WHO) updates on HIV+ transmission.

      At the end of this presentation, participants will be able to:
      1. Identify multiple sources of stigma re: sexuality for LGBTQ+ populations 
      2. Utilize the PLISSIT model in bringing up sexual topics

      3. Understand u = u in terms of HIV+ transmissibility.

      Harpreet Malla is a psychologist who is currently collecting her post-doctoral hours for licensure at Shanti Orange County in Laguna Hills, CA. She identifies as a 1.5 generation Indian-American feminist and enjoys navigating the cultural nuances those experiences have brought her. Dr. Malla has a passion for working with identity development as it pertains to LGBTQ, bicultural, and adolescent/young adult populations and recently has seen a rise in couples navigating arranged or other nontraditional marital practices in her work. She is also the Diversity Chair for LACPA.
