RECAMFT Response to COVID-19

Due to ongoing concerns and in support of efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19, RECAMFT has made the decision to cancel all in-person chapter events through Sept. 1, 2021. We are working hard to make some exciting changes to make our programming more accessible.

News from the World Health Organization and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention points to continued spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus throughout the country and the state of California. In making this decision, RECAMFT has resolved to be abundantly cautious and prioritize the health and safety of its members, speakers, and volunteer staff.

RECAMFT remains committed to providing support and resources for our members. We are carefully monitoring information about COVID-19 and hope to resume our regular program as soon as possible. We promise to keep you informed as developments unfold. We encourage you to stay connected via the ListServ and continue to share helpful information with our community.

Wishing everyone health and wellness.


Sincerely,

RECAMFT Board of Directors

    This 1 ½ hour workshop provides an overview of key issues that are important for therapists to consider when offering their professional opinion, including circumstances where the therapist is asked to write a letter for a client/patient.  The workshop will discuss key legal and ethical issues which apply to this topic, including sections of the Code of Ethics that apply when working with court-involved cases.  Vignettes will be utilized for discussion, as time allows

    Learning Objectives:

    1. Participants will be able to describe and discuss three or more sections of the CAMFT Code of ethics that are relevant to consider before writing a letter regarding a client/patient.

    2. Describe three or more questions that a therapist should consider before writing a letter for a client.

    "Understanding the Fundamentals of Minor Consent" 
    10:45 am - 12:15 PM
    Alain Montgomery, Esq

    Working with minors requires an understanding of the laws that pertain to minor consent. During this 90-minute presentation, CAMFT Staff Attorney Alain Montgomery will review who can lawfully consent to a minor’s mental health care treatment in California, the criteria specified in pertinent laws  authorizing minors to consent to their own treatment, and common issues related to the confidentiality of the minor’s healthcare information.

    Participants will gain a better understanding of the applicable minor consent laws and the CAMFT ethical standard(s) that relate to minor consent. As a result of the workshop, participants will be better equipped to make informed legally and ethically sound decisions when working with minors.

    Learning Objectives:

    1) Define the elements required for valid consent of a minor’s mental health treatment under California law

    2) Identify the ethical standard(s) relevant to a therapist’s duty to determine who has the legal authority to consent to treatment for a minor

    3) Distinguish between legal and physical custody of a minor in California

    4) Identify when parents or legal representatives have the legal authority to consent to mental health treatment for a minor

    5) Identify the circumstances and laws that allow a minor to consent to their own mental health treatment in California

    6) Distinguish the laws that determine when either parents/legal representatives or minors are authorized to inspect, access and authorize the disclosure of the minor’s confidential information
