Letter from the Board

February 1, 2015

Greetings to all old and new chapter members,

SVC-CAMFT has started out the new year with a great deal of enthusiasm.  Thank to our new communications director, Karen Ulep, we have established a social media presence. I invite you to take a look at our new facebook page.  

I would like to take the opportunity to thank Jill Lawler, our past president, for providing the new board and I with a great deal of help and support these last few months. There is certainly a learning curve, and she has helped smooth the way on many occasions.

I would also like to thank Darlene Davis for her wise counsel and guidance in the process. Her history of the organization and her commitment to the chapter have been a real blessing to me in this new venture. She definitely makes it not seem so daunting!

I am so grateful to all the new board members for their abundant energy, enthusiasm, great ideas and perspective, and most of all their follow through! A huge thank you to those that chose to stay on from the previous year and commit once again your valuable time and generous support to the board and the chapter.

For those of you who did not make the January breakfast meeting, we had a phenomenal speaker, Jon Daley, LCSW, CADAAC (Recovery Happens). Jon gave us extremely valuable information that was well received.  He also gave a complimentary copy of his latest book to each attendee. In addition, Recovery Happens sponsored the meeting and provided the catering. A huge thank you to them for everything!

In recognition and to further awareness of Eating Disorder Month, Jennifer Lombardi, LMFT, the Executive Director of Eating Recover Center (formerly Summit) will be our speaker at the February breakfast meeting. Jennifer is an expert in the field and a wonderful presenter. I encourage all of you to come and bring a colleague, an intern or a friend. Jennifer shares much information that is transferrable to other clinical settings.

The board has been active! We have had one full board meeting and one executive board meeting in January. We are slated to have 9 board members attend the leadership conference this year. We are very excited to strengthen and promote SVC-CAMFT as a professional organization to our mental health community to provide support, education and collegiality.

In closing, I would like to thank Heritage Oaks hospital for their hospitality. They have gone out of their way to be helpful and  to work with us. Special thanks to Elaine Brown at Heritage Oaks who is amazing in every way!

Legal Beagle

dectective.pngWelcome to the section of the SVC-CAMFT newsletter, Legal Beagle written by Darlene Davis, LMFT. The chapter thought it would be helpful to keep you updated on new laws, legislative pursuits or actions, as well as ongoing legal and ethical dilemmas we all face in our career as Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists, Interns, and Trainees. Please feel free to ask questions that you have and I will do my best to investigate and post your answer in the newsletter. Please note that articles are based on information from CAMFT and/or the BBS and have been researched to the best of my ability. This is not meant to be legal advice.  Please contact CAMFT or Board of Behavioral Sciences for any legal matters you need assistance for. 

******************************************************************************************************

I last reported on the BBS considering changing how pre-licensees collect hours. This idea stemmed from the board appointed supervision committee. The outcome is:

Formal Decision on Supervised Experience Hours:

At its meeting in November 2014, the Board approved language pertaining to the hours and types of supervised experience required for licensure as a LCSW, LMFT or LPCC, and the associated minimums and maximums (“buckets”). The language reflected the committee’s and stakeholders’ desire to remove most of the “buckets” for LMFT and LPCC, and instead requires a minimum of 1,750 hours of direct counseling (includes a minimum of 500hr of Family, Children, or Couples therapy, and a maximum of 1,250 hours of non-clinical experience. Board staff is in the process of obtaining an author for this legislative proposal.

 

Who this effects:

An individual who submits an application for examination eligibility between January 1, 2016 and December 31, 2017, may alternatively qualify under the experience requirements that were in place on January 1, 2015.

 

REMEMBER THIS IS NOT LAW YET BUT WHEN IT BECOMES LAW THEN YOU MAY QUALIFY!

 

The same supervision committee will be sending out a survey in mid-February to pre-licensees and supervisors. Please take the time to complete the survey as it will help shape future guidelines for supervisors. For those of you thinking of becoming supervisors or are already supervisors the board will be considering a few changes recommended by the committee such as:

 

Initial supervision training of 15-30hrs that may include supervision of supervision.

Ongoing training may be consultation, supervision of supervision, or ceu’s.

Organizations such as CAMFT or AAMFT that have certified supervisors may be exempt from the mandated initial supervision training or the two years waiting period that is currently in place to become a supervisor. (This might apply to someone coming from another state that is certified by an organization with higher standards)

 

Stay tuned for the boards decisions!

  January Presentation Summary

Attachment and Addiction (2 CEUs)

With Jon Daily

Jon discussed how Interpersonal Neurobiology relies on the idea of “social synapses”. Much like neurons communicate with and invoke reactions within each other, we do the same through social interactions. For example my interactions with you invoke emotional states within me.

He introduced the idea that “Neural-regulatory systems are built and broken from relationships” which means addiction results from broken/damaged attachment. Because of this, juvenile onset of addiction typically has a more rapid onset.

Because affect regulation is built and destroyed in relationships, the addict is attempting to regulate and manage emotional dysregulation.  Even emotional dysregulation caused by happiness can be triggering.

“Addiction is the consequence of and a solution to failed relationships.”

“It’s not a meth void or an oxy void. It’s a relationship void.”

A child will achieve co-regulation of their emotions through a secure attachment with someone who cares about them.  Implicit memory is dominant for the first 1 ½ years.  A young child has not mentalized their caregivers yet.  When they are shamed by caregivers, they are taught that something they are doing is making their co-regulator(s) go away.

“Not mentalized is the same as not there.”

“Attachment is a biological imperative. We cannot survive in the absence of attachment.”

He also educated us on the problem of marijuana.
The THC content (the part that makes you high) percentage has increased dramatically over the years and people can have psychotic breaks resulting from use: 1950's -  .5%     70’s – 1-3%     80’s – up to 5%     2008 – 10%     now – 23%
waxes, dabs, honey, or budders (looks like a ball of wax). – marijuana extract that is up to 73% THC this is sold in shops in Colorado and Washington.
 

There was so much more but in the end he summarized “The name of the drug is an illusion."  in other words an addiction of one substance can be changed to another substance - what you need to treat is the underlying reason (often attachment) for the addiction.

Interview with a Therapist

We were lucky enough to get an intervew with Ann Leber, LMFT our
SVC-CAMFT President!

Q:  Please state your name

A:  Ann Leber


Q:  What type of license/s do you hold?

A:  LMFT

    

Q:  How long have you been licensed?

A:  23 years

 

Q:  Where do you work?

A:  In a private practice setting (Francine Farrell and Associates)

     Sacramento County Office of Education

     California State University, Sacramento

     Volunteer: Medicine in Action (International work in developing countries with women and children.
    

Q:  Is it private practice or an agency?

A:  Both


Q:  What client population/s do you work with?

A:  Primarily adolescents, families and adults
    

Q:  What type/s of therapy do you utilize in your mental health work?

A:  Individual, Family and adults


Q:  What made you decide upon a career in the mental health profession?

A:  I began working with adolescents in a special education setting 35 years ago. I saw the struggles and challenges the children and families faced. I was originally a botany major, but the love of my work with the kids and my first psychology class changed my trajectory.


Q:  Which client populations or particular types of mental health issues have been the most challenging for you to work with?

A:  The most challenging issue for me has been the system of care for children. I often feel that we talk a great deal about valuing children in this culture, but it is not realized in the systems of care. I am also challenged and frustrated by what I believe are inequities in the systems of care for children and adolescents.

 

Q:  How have you dealt with clients with poor boundaries?

A:  I think this depends on several issues. What is the age of the client? What stage of treatment are we in? I believe that clear boundaries are one of the foundations of therapy and provide emotional safety for the client. The most important way for me to address boundaries for my client is by setting them with myself and modeling them within the context of the therapeutic relationship. This is everything from beginning and ending my  sessions on time to limited and careful self disclosure.


Q:  What advice would you give for a pre-licensed mental health professional contemplating private practice versus other workplace options?

A:   I believe consultation is important for anyone doing private practice but especially for those starting out. It is easy to become isolated and insulated. I would also encourage them to continue with their education by active participation in searching for new information and keeping up to date. I believe there is a difference between doing continuing education units to meet the requirements of the board and get them out of the way, and seeking information for continued growth as a clinician.


Q:  How do you feel about personal therapy being optional for psychotherapists?

A:  I can’t speak for others. It was not optional for me.


Q:  Which personal attributes do you believe are most important for a therapist to possess?

A:   A willingness to be honest with oneself and to continually do inventory in order to be present with someone else. (Easier said than done!)

Q:  What are the most prominent skills that you think are essential for a pre-licensed therapist to focus on developing?

A:   Listening skills..not hearing but actually listening. So often, we want to share all we know with our clients and forget to listen.


Q:  Which mental health-related books have been your personal favorites or been most influential for you?

A:  The Psychological Birth of the Human Infant by Margaret Mahler.


Q:  Are there any tools (e.g., particular assessments, games, etc.) that you find particularly effective for use in therapy?

A:  Beck, Conners, Art, Bibliotherapy, VERY GOOD developmental history, homework


Q:  What has been the most challenging aspect of your career?

A:  Remembering to balance work and play.


Q:  What have you found to be the most fulfilling and meaningful aspects of your career?

A:  I think it is actually the smaller things. IE walking into a school and having a student say “I need to talk to you”

 

Q:  Did you have a mentor or a particular person that influenced your growth as a therapist?

A:  I trained with a Psychiatrist early on in my career. I feel very fortunate to have had this experience. So often, I read “new ideas” or try something and think Bernie talked to me about that 25 years ago. I feel he gave me a very solid foundation that I did not get in school.


Q:  If so, what did you learn from that person and how did he or she contribute to your development as a mental health professional?

A:  He was not an easy supervisor/consultant. Above all he taught me that working with transference and counter transference was not an option.  He supported me to have the courage to do the work.


Q:  What were the factors involved in the process of creating your own therapeutic style?

A:  I purposely put myself in the situation of being supervised and/or consulting with a Psychiatrist, Psychologist..LCSW and MFCC concurrently. These were all clinicians that I respected very much. I could then run a case by all of them and get 4 different perspectives (psychoanalytic to systems). It was very helpful in helping me to discern what made sense to me and how to approach a case from different perspectives. It gave me an opportunity to not see a perspective as right or wrong, but just different. It also taught me to focus on how to develop clinical rationale for a certain treatment protocol.

 

Q:  How have you maintained the balance between your career and personal life and how have you managed to foster your own self-care?

A: I was taught early on to make sure I put myself in situations where I could observe kids/adolescents doing healthy things. I also make sure that I surround myself with healthy and positive people. I have many self nurturing hobbies, including gardening


Q:  What do you know now that wish you knew before you became a licensed therapist?

A:  I wish I had known about SVC-CAMFT before I was licensed.


Q:  What additional advice would you give to a pre-licensed therapist?

A:  Be a sponge.  Learn from whomever you can whenever you can.

Special Feature

Breathe & Eat©:

Binge Eating Disorder and the Connection to the Physical Body

By Rochelle Rice, MA

In my work as a fitness trainer who specializes with plus size women and binge eating disorders, I have many clients who feel they have spent years talking about their disordered eating - years in the offices of therapists, nutritionists or eating disorders support groups talking about the pain, the emotion, the binges, the shame, the guilt, and the self loathing associated with binge eating and emotional eating.  And while the talking about the emotions is beneficial, at some point the frustration and sense of hopelessness can leave her feeling like she is drowning in a sea of emotion without a life preserver.

There seems to be a time when it is possible to talk about the needs and wants of the physical body.  This comes when the client has tried everything and even then, as a health professional, it is interesting to notice and feel how the information is received.

Most of my clients know the sensation of low blood sugar or when the body has not had food for a long period of time.  Forget hungry.  She is more familiar with the sensation of cranky, headachy, angry, or shaky.  Many also know the sensation the body feels after a binge.  Forget full.  She is more familiar with the sensation of pain, stuffed, sick, or nauseous.  Each of these are physical sensations and nothing to do with emotion.  What is interesting is to acknowledge – yes, there is emotion involved – but what if for just this one meal we work on only the physical sensations of the body?  And one response – ‘it’s so nice to put all that emotional baggage aside for a moment and listen to my body.’  It’s an opportunity to separate out the physical from the emotional even for just one meal.

My Breathe & Eat© program is taught strictly from an anatomical perspective - helping the client identify the low blood sugar sensation and the after Thanksgiving or binge feeling that is unique to her.  A more challenging sensation to recognize is what her body feels like when it has had the appropriate amount of food for her body.  Some sensations include balanced, whole, calm and ahhh.  Again, each of these are accurately unique and represent a true sense of physical balance within herself.  This center sensation is probably the most difficult to identify because it has been overridden numerous times.  But with practice, it is very encouraging and enlightening for her to feel and name this sensation.

I also work a lot with my clients on breathing – not just telling them to breathe, but teaching them the natural diaphragmatic breathing of the body – inhaling and feeling the abdominal wall rise, exhaling and feeling the abdominal wall soften and pull in.  Again, because of years of overriding the natural rhythm of the breath, the anxiety and fear take over and the binge can win out.  Or the numbing with food can leave give her body a sense of peace where the breath may be softer and easier.

And lastly, teaching the actual anatomy of the body – where the stomach is located (base of the esophagus, slightly to the left), how much food the stomach organ can hold (cup your hands together like a bowl), and the length, location and sensation of the intestines (26’ located lower than the stomach in which there is often more pain following a binge).  I also teach about the rib cage, lungs and diaphragm and different types of breathing to help her remain calm and steady with food so she can hear the voice of her physical body.

This is a very tough and challenging topic for binge eaters – anyone for that matter that struggles with food.  But when the voice of the physical body can be heard, it brings a sense of surprise and relief to the client as she begins to navigate this new direction based strictly on her anatomy.  The art of the work after identifying these sensations is the blend of the physical body and the emotions.

As a health professional, try introducing some of the anatomy in your sessions – even if you just steady your own breath so your patient can model the behavior almost without realizing it.  If you are the client/patient, try placing a book on your abdomen when you are lying down.  On your inhale the book should rise, and on your exhale, the book should lower.  Treating binge eating from a physical body perspective may be challenging at first for both the health professional and the client/patient.  But with patience and practice, the voice of the physical body will be heard and the joy is overwhelming.

 “and I said to my body, softly.  ‘I want to be your friend.’  it took a long breath and replied, ‘I have been waiting my whole life for this.’”

- Nayyirah Waheed.

Title:  Mastering Competencies in Family Therapy: A practical Approach to Theories and Clinical Case Cocumentation
Publisher:
Brooks/Cole
Copyright: 2014/2010
Author:
Diane Gehart
Reviewer: 
Heather Blessing, MFT Intern
Review: 
This book is good for interns or even a therapist that just wants an easier way to write treatment plans in different family therapy models.  She is easy to understand and puts it in a format that makes something that can be overwhelming and complex, pretty easy to understand.  I am finding this book helpful also to look at the different models and see which one would work best for the family I am working with.  Then it walks me through thinking about the case and how to write the treatment plan. 

As an intern it is helping me really understand the different theories and how to apply them, which will hopefully help me when I take my exams.
