Benefits of Membership

Do you want to have a place to network with fellow Marriage and Family Therapists and and other mental health professionals to improve your professional skills? Do you want a place where you can learn the skills needed to grow your practice? Would you like a place where you have access to the tools to help fill spaces in your upcoming group, find an internship, find office space or advertise the services that you and your colleagues offer?

Below are some of the ways that the Santa Barbara Chapter of CAMFT can help answer these questions.

Access to the E-Tree

Members have free and unlimited e-mail access to hundreds of colleagues for referrals, announcements of workshops and classes, office space inquiries, job openings, and active discussions relevant to our profession.

Listing in the Santa Barbara Chapter Therapist Finder

Potential clients have immediate on line access to your professional listing. You can include a link to your personal website where you can provide expanded information about your practice, your training, your specializations and other information which will attract new clients. All listings can be searched by name, location, specialization, insurance, and group offerings.

Communication

Members can visit the SBCAMFT website to review back issues of the chapter newsletter for articles, updates on upcoming events, internship and job listings and articles of professional interest.

Professional Development

Attend monthly luncheons (except July and August) and hear informative presentations which provide CEUs. Attend a low cost Law & Ethics workshop presented by a CAMFT staff attorney. Members have the opportunity themselves to present a luncheon talk to their colleagues on a topic in your area of expertise. Join the SBCAMFT Board of Directors or serve on a working board committee.

Social Activities

The chapter provides several annual informal social mixers to meet and get to know your professional colleagues.
