SIG Update: Constructive Uncoupling Highlights for Season II

Judith Weigle, Creative Editor

The Constructive Uncoupling special interest group, co-chaired by Judith Weigle and Victoria Goldfarb, is entering its second season in November with a line-up of topics that engage therapists, mediators, and attorneys in discussions that allow for the exchange of information for those working in the field of divorce, family law, and relationship therapy. We meet the second Wednesday of the month, except for December, July and August. Reservations are requested. Membership affiliation with LA-CAMFT is not required. There is no admission fee to attend.

The venue is the Colorado Center in Santa Monica between Broadway and Colorado, and Cloverfield Avenue and 26th Street, in the Community Room. The time is 7pm – 8:30pm. There are food kiosks in the Colorado Center. Parking is available on-street or in the parking structure.

This coming year will be topic-driven and led by a moderator to encourage more conversation and interaction between attendees. The topics include sharing our process of working with divorcing couples, personality disorders, spousal and child support, faith-based clients, co-parenting approaches, dealing with sexual issues, and conflict management skills between clients and practitioners.

There may be an all-day seminar in April 2017, with speakers who are prominent in family therapy and law, and who support the constructive uncoupling process. Look for coming announcements on the LA-CAMFT website and in this newsletter.

Please refer to the LA-CAMFT website for the schedule of meetings, and to contact Judith and Victoria to confirm attendance.
