    "A Dance with Boundaries:

    Understanding the Top Ethical Challenges in Clinical Practice"

    Note:  Presented on Zoom.

    Do you have a problem saying No? Do you have a difficult time completing task and accomplishing goals? Do you have a problem honoring your word to yourself? Do you have a problem setting boundaries with family and in romantic relationships? Are you fed up with not being heard? Do you have a desire to better manage your schedule? Are you looking for more freedom and control over your choices and decisions? Would you like additional ways to take care of yourself?

    If you answered YES to any one of these questions, she invites you to say YES and join our Workshop on Sunday, June 5th. You will receive over 90 minutes of focused training on how setting proper boundaries can support you in moving from saying no to things you don’t want, to saying yes to areas that bring you peace, joy, freedom.

      1. Describe three ethical dilemmas clinicians face with boundary setting with clients in private practice/clinical practice.

    Meeting Information


    SFV-CAMFT provides numerous events to encourage professional development, networking opportunities, and access to resources in the field. SFV-CAMFT is an approved continuing education provider (#62881) by the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists. Please note there are no regular monthly meetings during the months of May, August and December.

    We offer reciprocity to members of LA-CAMFT, SGV-CAMFT, and Santa Clarita Valley-CAMFT chapters. To get the $15 meeting rate, please register online using the chapter member reciprocity link.

    Important Note

    • Starting with the February monthly membership meeting SFV-CAMFT will be providing 1.5 CEUs at each meeting.
    • Due to the longer CEU presentation the meeting agenda will no longer include structured networking, and meetings will now end at 11:15am.

    • The chapter offers a student rate of $20 for non-chapter members, and has made a change to the week of/day of event registration. Chapter member registration is $25, and non-member registration is $35.

    Refund Policy


    Requests for refunds must be in writing and received by SFV-CAMFT before one week prior to the event. A $2 administrative fee will be deducted for cancellation of a paid event, through the cancellation deadline. There will be no refunds on requests received after one week prior to the event. The President has discretion to issue refunds that do not comply with the policy.
