Heading towards 2020 the general consensus is a world in crisis. Our technology, freedoms, views on diversity, and spread of wealth are at a point never seen before in history. As therapists, how do we know if we are still using the correct lens to view our client’s issues? When you hear the phrase “20/20 Vision,” clarity, sharpness, awareness, perception, depth, and even focus, are words that come to mind. For mental health professionals, developing these attributes can be very beneficial when treating clients, which is exactly why the Annual Conference and Continuing Education Planning Committee has selected “20/20 Vision” as the theme of CAMFT’s 2020 Annual Conference.

The Committee is seeking introductory, intermediate, and advanced workshop proposals that offer cutting-edge content by prominent mental-health visionaries who share an incomparable awareness of and insight into the newest wave of therapeutic approaches, technology, and business savvy for therapists and soon-to-be therapists. So, if you are passionate about sharing your “vision” with your peers, the Committee invites you to submit a proposal that relates to one of the below topics:
