Diversity Information & Events


Message from Diversity Committee Chair, Jonathan Thompson II

As Autumn is upon us there is the opportunity to engage as a community in increasing diversity, equity, inclusion and justice (DEIJ). I am excited to share that we are working on opportunities for you to become more actively involved beyond just the membership perks including a book group, micro-volunteerism appeals, and continuing my talks (Tea with JT) countywide to start the dialogue around issues of DEIJ. We are providing several on-ramps to community and I look forward seeing you becoming more active in your local chapter.

DEIJ (Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Justice) Statement

SBCAMFT is committed to working in practical and substantive ways to take action in both our organization and our community, in order to learn about and remain aware of longstanding patterns of historical and systemic discrimination and biases, and to take action towards breaking these patterns.

SBCAMFT is committed to working in practical and substantive ways to take action in both our organization and our community, in order to learn about and remain aware of longstanding patterns of historical and systemic discrimination and biases, and to take action towards breaking these patterns. SBCAMFT is providing a new offering for members and soon-to-be-members an opportunity to engage in building trust, practicing active listening, and working to have a place to create action both personally and professionally.  

The purpose of this group is to provide space for clinicians and those who desire to better understand longstanding patterns that impact our community.  This will allow for dialogue as often the question is posed "Where do I start?"
