    The very structure of supervision is triangular - supervisor, trainee, client. The emotional tensions created by the relationships forming the triangle will be discussed. Click here to download the article for this meeting.


    Learning Objectives

    1. Describe emotional intimacy in supervision and how it relates to working with the self of the trainee.

    Come celebrate with us at the first annual
    SFV-CAMFT Appreciation Dinner!

    With gratitude and joy, we wish to honor chapter members who step up, month after month, and for some, year after year, in service to the chapter and our wonderful community of compassionate professionals.

    Without individuals who dependably give of their time, talents, and energy, SFV-CAMFT would not exist. Because of their service, SFV-CAMFT is a vibrant and active chapter; one that connects us, keeps us informed, and strongly supports therapists through grad school, licensure, and our careers.

    For this evening we will gather to honor those individuals, enjoy a generous selection of delectable hors d'oeuvres, non-alcoholic beverages provided (cash bar), camaraderie, dance, and good old-fashioned cheer.
