Welcome to the San Diego Chapter of CAMFT
The SD CAMFT Board is outraged and saddened by this country's systemic racism, violence, and oppression directed at Black People on a daily basis. We share the grief for lives of innocent black people who are gone too soon including George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and many others. We see you and we stand with you.
As Marriage and Family Therapists, our code of ethics states that we will gain knowledge and awareness of diverse backgrounds so that we can better support our clients. Secondly, it states that we will not discriminate or condone those who do. Third, it states that we will be aware of and not perpetuate historical or social prejudices. The SD CAMFT Board wants its members to know that for us it goes beyond simply being a requirement of our code of ethics.
We want you to know that each member of the SD CAMFT Board is committed to striving to be a lifelong ally to social justice including the Black Lives Matter movement. We commit to engaging in our own self reflection on personal biases. We commit to participating in dialogues regarding race, privilege, and power. We commit to doing better and being better. We invite all of our SD CAMFT Chapter Members to join us.
SD CAMFT Board commits to planning events and promoting resources that will support Marriage and Family Therapists in continuing to develop cultural competencies and learning more effective ways to address trauma related to racism with our clients. Additionally, we commit to creating spaces where therapists can engage in important dialogues regarding these topics. One example of this is our Therapist of Color Support Group. When we as therapists participate in our own reflection and growth, we are then able to create a space where our clients will feel supported in exploring their own thoughts and emotions surrounding these important topics.
