I’d like to call your attention to an addition we included in this particular newsletter; we have a “featured book” in this edition. A dear community member, Robin Defilippi, connected us with Martha Paradis- author of the book Flowers & Locusts. Martha was scheduled to do an in person workshop for us right as the reality of the pandemic set in, and we’ve been in communication ever since working on the possibility of rescheduling her for an event. The bad news is that this won’t be able to happen. The good news is that Martha has written a very expressive book that shares about her life experience growing up in Ethiopia. Martha, currently a trauma psychotherapist based on the east coast, brings a distinct lens to the work of helping people heal their unresolved trauma that is influenced by her unique life experience. I highly encourage you to read more about her and her book, and to purchase it! Martha has told me that she is hoping to donate the proceeds from her book to support a scholarship for an Ethiopian student.
We do have a couple of virtual CE events planned for October. To support our pre-licensed members (and perhaps clinical supervisors who’d like to brush up on licensure requirements), we are offering a Road to Licensure workshop. In the theme of understanding the fundamentals, we also have a 6 hour Law and Ethics workshop planned for later in October. If you are in need of your L&E CEs, we’ve got you covered!
Lastly, I’d like to thank all of you who took the time to fill out the in-person event survey. We had a great pool of participation, which gives us valuable information needed to plan for the future. In the midst of things continuing to change, it is really helpful to understand what our membership prefers. Thank you again!
Welcoming in a hint of autumn...
