Marriage Equality
Ethics, Marriage and Family Therapists
Hosted by California Therapists for
Marriage Equality
As many of you are aware, there has been an ongoing debate among MFTs regarding CAMFTʼs position of neutrality on marriage for same-gender couples.
Why do some MFTs feel so strongly that CAMFT should take a position on Marriage Equality? Is it really CAMFTʼs ethical responsibility to take a public stand of support? The issue of equal rights for samegender couples has been the catalyst for MFTs to earnestly question the ethical responsibilities of the association and how MFTs are represented in the larger mental health community.
Please join us to:
~Review what has transpired between CAMFT and members since January
~Discuss the effects and implications of the “Traditional Marriage” articles published by CAMFT
in the May/June The Therapist magazine
~Listen to the stories of how other CAMFT local chapters (SF and East Bay) are responding to
their membership on these issues and the action they are taking
~Ponder issues at stake for the profession concerning diversity, cultural competence, and the
loss of support by some Universities with MFT programs
~Participate in a discussion of ethical issues for MFTs, the association and profession
~Consider options moving forward
Please RSVP to 415-373-0192 voicemail or to br [at] barbararosemft.com If you donʼt RSVP we still want you to come but it will help if you RSVP. Admission Free. Small Donation for Space Optional.
