2017 President's Welcome

from Reyna Seminara, LMFT

Welcome to the Redwood Empire CAMFT chapter! Feedback we get from members and visitors alike, is that we are a warm and welcoming chapter. For ten months each year, we offer members free CEUs at interesting and informative trainings. Then, because we video our trainings, they are available to members on YouTube through the Members’ Only section of our website.

If you are already a member, we are happy you are with RECAMFT. If you are thinking of joining, the trainings are only one of the benefits of belonging to RECAMFT.

Warmly, Reyna Seminara

The Best CEU Bargain! You can earn ALL your CEUs for renewal, simply by attending the monthly RECAMFT meetings and taking our Law & Ethics six-hour seminar in the spring. It's the best CEU bargain anywhere and includes fun networking with your colleagues, a wide variety of interesting speakers and topics, a chance to get known in the community for what you do, and great snacks!

Monthly meetings are open to the public and no charge. RECAMFT provides CEUs for professionals who are licensed with the CA Board of Behavioral Sciences. There is no charge to members for 1.5 CEUs at the general monthly meetings. Non-members who desire CEUs can pay $15 to purchase a CEU certificate.

Francis Weller, MFT, is the author of The Wild Edge of Sorrow: Rituals of Renewal and the Sacred Work of Grief. He has introduced the healing work of ritual to thousands of people. The core of his work is creating pathways to reclaiming our indigenous soul, what psychologist Carl Jung called the “unforgotten wisdom” that resides in the heart of the psyche.

Statement of Support for Jan Mellinger, LMFT, CAMFT Presidential Candidate, Spring 2017

The Redwood Empire Chapter of the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists (RECAMFT.org) Board of Directors supports Jan Mellinger for CAMFT President. Jan's previous history as CAMFT President (1995-1996) means she knows exactly what is expected of her as a President of CAMFT. We believe her long history with CAMFT will be useful in providing historical memory to the Board of Directors. She has the inclusive and superior experience all our members need at this time. Please consider voting for Jan Mellinger, as CAMFT's President Elect in the Spring 2017 election.
