    • Village Vino 4059 Adams Ave San Diego, CA 92116

    Welcome to our Free Monthly Pre-Licensed Consultation Group!

    This month I'd like to make it more casual. Let's meet for some appetizers and a drink to socialize and de-stress. 

    Please join us to continue getting to know one another (we are all in this together), enjoy different perspectives, give ourselves the opportunity to share and receive support outside of our internship or work environment, and ask those questions we sometimes take home with us. Don't forget to add a bit of fun and stress relief. 

    Snacks will be provided. 

    To be clear, this is not supervision and does not count for any BBS requirements. This is solely for additional support and an open discussion forum.

    • 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
    • Rancho Penasquitos Library-Community Room 13330 Salmon River Rd, San Diego, CA 92129

    You are invited to the inaugural Special Interest Group(SIG) on Health Insurance!

    The purpose of the Health Insurance SIG is to provide support for marriage and family therapists who want to expand their business by contracting with health insurance companies as behavioral health providers. Meeting discussions will include how to enroll as a provider with a health insurance company, therapist obligations under the provider agreement/contract, maintaining good client records, submitting claims for reimbursement, what to do if payment is denied, and how to handle audit requests. Further, the latest health insurance industry news will be discussed as it applies to the professional work of an MFT. 

    The March meeting will occur on Saturday, March 10, 2018 at 10am at the Rancho Penasquitos Branch Library in the Community Room, 13330 Salmon River Rd, San Diego, CA 92129.  The room has an occupancy of 175, so no limit on the attendees and NO registration is required. This event is free. We look forward to seeing everyone there!

    The #MeTooLGBTQ conference was created to increase culturally competent services in San Diego county for victims/survivors of sexual violence who identify as LGBTQ. This one day conference is the first step in a long-term solution.

    Nationwide, approximately 4 out of 10 gay men (40.2%) and half of bisexual men (47.4%) have experienced sexual violence besides rape at some point in their lives, compared to 1 in 5 heterosexual men (20.8%). A large majority (61%) of bisexual women and 44% of lesbians have experienced rape, physical violence, or stalking by an intimate partner, compared to 35% of heterosexual women. And 47% of our transgender siblings experience sexual assault in their lifetime.

    Registration is open to victims/survivors of sexual violence, interested community members, and as well as mental health professionals and service providers who are looking to create change. Two workshop tracks will allow attendees to participate in interactive trainings, you will hear from a panel of LGBTQ survivors of sexual violence, and receive valuable resources.

    Mental health and clinical providers attending #MeTooLGBTQ will learn about the severity and frequency of sexual assault and sex trafficking in LGBTQ communities, how to normalize the conversation and assess for sexual violence, as well as trauma-informed ways to support survivors.

    • Neurobiology of Trauma & Resilience Skills: Helping your clients regulate their nervous systems
    • Strengths-Based Safety Planning That’s Culturally Relevant: Resources and strategies appropriate for LGBTQ survivors

This course meets the qualifications for up to 5 hours of Continuing Education credit for MFTs, LCSWs, LPCCs and LEPs as required by the California Board of Behavioral Sciences.

    For Survivors & Community Members ($0 – $15):

Crisis-intervention-trained staff will be on hand to help anyone who needs immediate support.

    Please note: Suggested donation for survivor & community member attendees is $15 however no one will be turned away for inability to pay.
