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

Read RECAMFT's Diversity Statement for Presenters here.
RECAMFT Members - VERY IMPORTANT - you must use the same email you joined with when signing up for events.
Using a different email will cause the system to not recognize you are a member, and other issues. Thank you!

    "Providing Effective Therapy to Clients with Autism"

    Presented by: 

    Haleigh Scott, PhD

    Friday, March 5, 2021

    10:30 am - 1:45 pm
    Zoom Webinar
    3 CEs

    Course Description         

    Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a diagnosis that has gained increased attention over the past few decades, largely due to the rapid increase in cases. According the latest CDC numbers, 1 in 54 children has an ASD diagnosis. This is a lot of children and adults that need services! While many people think that people with ASD only need disability specific care, such as Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), nothing could be further from the truth. Children and adults with ASD have high rates of co-occurring mental health disorders such as anxiety, depression, and PTSD.

    Unfortunately, people with ASD face barriers in accessing the mental health care that they need for these conditions. While there are many complex reasons that people with ASD struggle to obtain needed care, one component of this problem is that mental health care providers often feel they are not qualified to treat these clients. In this presentation participants will learn about ASD, debunk common myths about people with ASD and therapy, and begin to build the confidence and competence to provide essential mental health care to this population.

    Learning Objectives

    1. Evaluate current practices and beliefs surrounding providing treatment to people with autism.

    2. Understand the important role of community mental health providers in supporting people with autism.

    3. Create a plan for building institutional or personal capacity to provide mental health treatment for people with autism.

          "Winnocott Goes Viral:

          A Look at Early Relationships Through Viral Videos"


          Presented by: 

          Orit Weksler, LMFT

          • Friday, April 2, 2021
          • 10:30 am - 12:30 pm
          • Zoom Webinar
          • 2 CEUs

          Course Description         

          What makes our early experiences meaningful and useful? What helps us know ourselves and make sense of the world? Using viral videos from the early days of YouTube, we will attempt to answer these questions using Winnicott’s ideas about “The Full Experience”; “Personal Gestures”; “A Holding Environment” and Transitional Space”. We will think about attachment, metallization, play and discuss ideas about rhythm, knowledge and the importance of pausing in an interactive and fun training.

          Learning Objectives 

          1. Know about Winnicott's concepts of "The full experience", "Transitional space", "Holding environment".

          2. Understand the relationship between "rhythm", "knowledge" and "pause" in creating a transitional space that allows for growth and creativity.

          3. Experience a "holding environment" in the presentation itself and reflect on how to use this experience in their clinical work.
