Letter from the Board

August 25, 2019

Hello {Contact_First_Name} {Contact_Last_Name}! 

We are back for the fall with a full schedule of events.

Our Law and Ethics training was extremely successful. We instituted a new format and had close to 90 therapists attend and receive this very important training.  Thanks you to all that attended and for your valuable feedback.

Our diversity committee has sponsored Meet Up events for both Mental Health Professionals of Color and LGBTQ Mental Health Professionals. They have been well attended and are growing in numbers. These are free events for the mental health community. Please consider attending one of the meetings. Information is posted on our site.

Our next meeting and training will be on September 6TH. The BBS will be sending a representative to the 3000 Club Workshop. They have come several times, and it has been invaluable to our students/associates. Please come with your questions.   Dr. Justin Altschuler will be speaking that day about the current opiate crisis to our general membership.

Elections are just around the corner. Please consider running for an office or volunteering for our board. We are always looking for new therapists to join us.  It is a rewarding experience.  If you are interested contact Linita at presidentelect@svccamft.org.

Peace,

Ann Leber

Workshop Information:

Opiate use disorder is common, with significant clinical consequences (~70k overdose deaths/year in the US). Therapy is a critical part of a compressive, effective treatment program. Medications have been shown to have important clinical benefit, but are often overlooked parts of a treatment plan. This workshop will discuss the goals of treatment, as well as the role medications play in treatment. We will discuss risks and benefits of various medication approaches, as well as what the therapist can expect to see as a result of these medications. Lastly, the role of effective therapy (and how this can be structured) in the overall treatment of opiate use disorder will be reviewed and discussed.
