    Black Therapist Support Group

    A safe place for healing, connection, support and building community. In this group, licensed clinicians, associates and students can come together and process experiences of racism (systemic, social, and internalized), discrimination, implicit bias, and micro-aggressions, along with additional experiences that therapists of African descent encounter in the field of mental health. As the late great Maya Angelou once said, “As soon as healing takes place, go out and heal someone else.” May this space, be the support needed to facilitate that journey.

    Open to LA-CAMFT Members and Non-Members

    Defining Legal and Ethical Issues
    for Therapists in a Changing California

    With
    Curt Widhalm, LMFT

    Across California and throughout the nation, mental health advocacy has led to expanded access and rights for patients seeking behavioral health services. This means new opportunities and responsibilities for therapists to remain compliant with updated laws. This course explores new (and old) responsibilities for client documentation, access to records, MFTs serving as Medicare providers, and the interaction with technical advances such as artificial intelligence.

    Educational Goal
    This workshop is intended for licensed and pre-licensed master’s level therapists with beginner-to-advanced experience to cover the foundations of clinical documentation, expanded practice through Medicare, ethical considerations for technology and artificial intelligence, and updates to laws for California MFTs. At the end of this presentation, participants will be able to:

    1. Describe three required pieces of a client record.
    2. Identify three requirements for Good Faith Estimates.
    3. Critique three situations when clients request access to records.
    4. Distinguish three considerations for client privacy when using technology.
    5. Translate two standards of minimal technological competency for therapists.
    6. List three laws for therapists newly effective in 2024.

    White Therapists Fighting Racism
    LA-CAMFT Diversity Committee Affinity Group

    Third Sunday of Every Month

    Next Meeting:
    Sunday, March , 2024
    3:00 pm-5:00 pm (PT)

    Online Via Zoom

    White Therapists Fighting Racism

    The goal of White Therapists Fighting Racism (WTFR) is for white-identified therapists to become effective allies in support of decolonization and racial justice in our clinical practice, therapy association, and community. Recognizing that racism is maintained when whiteness is invisible to white people, White Therapists Fighting Racism provides a forum for white-identified therapists to explore what it means to be white. While this process includes learning about structural racism and deconstructing the false narrative about race, a primary focus in the group is on doing inner work. To learn more, click on the Diversity Committee page.

    Open to LA-CAMFT Members and Non-Members


    For:
    Licensed Therapists, Associates, and Students
