1 SCAMFT Continues Bringing You the Masters of Family Therapy By Jan McMeekin, D.Min., LSMFT, LSPC, CTS, CEAP SCAMFT ended the year with a wonderful November conference presented by Laura Dodson, PhD., MSW. Thanks to everyone who participated in the conference. We had the privilege of seeing Laura work with a family and couple. Her demonstration using Virginia Satir s concepts of family reconstruction was powerful. If you missed this opportunity you have another chance. Laura has agreed to do a pre-conference workshop at the SCAMFT conference in June. Lorena Cavalieri, Family Therapist, Director of the Foundation Silvano Andolfi, will co-present with Laura on how to apply systems theories to affect change across cultural divides. We are very excited to be entering a New Year featuring our Master Series conferences. Don t miss Dr. Salvador Minuchin and Dr. Maurizio Andolfi this spring in Charleston; this is a rare opportunity to learn from the masters in marriage and family therapy. Don t forget the benefit of SCAMFT s Master s Discount--- if you register for both the Andolfi and Minuchin conferences you can bundle the two and save money. It is a real bargain to attend both conferences for $325. I hope that all of our new year s resolutions include being more active in SCAMFT. Each member is valued and we want to have a strong network in our South Carolina Marriage and Family Therapy Association. AAMFT provided research as to why people join organizations. Networking, timely professional information and career development head the list. Hopefully, you feel that SCAMFT also provides these valuable services. In our recent association survey, almost 60% of SCAMFT members felt we should pursue inclusion of MFTs in the pool of qualified candidates for jobs within state-specified jobs. We need your help to accomplish this so, volunteer for a special committee. Other important advocacy issues are lobbying for inclusion of MFTs in schools, freedom of choice (Vendorship) laws, and MFTS inclusion in Medicaid and being providers for BlueCross/Blue Shield reimbursement. Every one of us can help SCAMFT in lobbying for these important efforts by: writing to our legislators, conducting a tour of our professional facility/office/practice for our legislators, visiting them in their district offices, or by volunteering to serve on an advocacy committee. Also, we can educate our legislators and community on what a Marriage and Family Therapist is as those opportunities arise. A fact sheet is available on the AAMFT website to assist us in explaining our unique qualifications. The SCAMFT website also has a link to legislation; which allows us to access information on how to contact the legislators. For more ideas contact Todd Hanson, our SCAMFT board legislative chair, who is listed on our website. Remember to stay informed by checking that website regularly. We are also now on twitter and facebook! As always, we welcome any feedback you can give us and encourage you to contact a member of our board with any questions or concerns. 2011, ISSUE 1 In this Issue From the President...1 SCAMFT Plans a Social Event You Won t Want to Miss...2 Southern Belle Lives To Tell.

2 SCAMFT Plans a Social Event You Won t Want to Miss By Karen Cooper-Haber, LMFT, LSMFT, LSPC, SCAMFT President I wanted to let you know about some special events that we are planning at SCAMFT conferences this spring that need your support. First, I am so excited that both Salvador Minuchin and Maurizio Andolfi are speaking at our upcoming conferences in Charleston (March 26 and June 2-4).We also have other training/learning/networking/entertaining events planned. Following our supervision workshop with Maurizio on Thursday from 12-3, Drs. Laura Dodson and Lorena Cavelieri, Maurizio s wife and director of the Andolfi-Silvano Institute, will co-present a special 3-hour workshop. They will share their work with culturally diverse and transient families from and in other cultures and countries. Additionally, we are planning on bringing a special guest from NY/Connecticut for a Friday evening performance that will provide us with both entertainment and the opportunity to learn from a therapist s creative presentation of her family story, aptly entitled Southern Belle Lives to Tell. Nancy Thode is a native of Beaufort, the daughter of author Ann Head, and a family therapist/msw by profession. Nancy has presented her one-woman show in Connecticut, Fripp Island, Hilton Head and Beaufort. Excited about bringing the show to a group of therapists, and courageous enough to do it, Nancy is willing to donate her performance to our association. However, there are other costs of approximately $1,800 to putting this on and we need to raise funds to cover these costs. I am following up on everyone s suggestions about financing this show, hoping for a sponsor that will fund the whole thing. Not finding this thus far, I am looking for individuals who are willing to make a donation (hopefully $50-100) to SCAMFT towards the cost of the show. This donation will, of course, reserve your seat at the performance and our social hour following the Friday conference and preceding the show. We will have a panel of family therapists who SCAMFT has chosen because of their own creative process to share thoughts, reactions etc. after the 90 minute performance. (This is timed in order to allow folks ample time for dinner after the show). I have seen this show and believe it will enhance our SCAMFT/Spoleto experience. Please send your donation to the SCAMFT Office, 1215 Anthony Avenue, Columbia, SC and indicate it is for the Friday night musical show. Appreciations of those who donate $50 or more will be listed on the program. Make sure you indicate if you (or you and a guest) will be attending the performance so that your seat(s) will be reserved. Looking forward to seeing you at one or both of our spring conferences. Southern Belle Lives To Tell. A Musical Autobiography Performed and Written by Nancy Thode In response to the request of many members to bring back the fun to our conferences, SCAMFT is sponsoring its own version of Spoleto for attendees and their guests on Friday night, June 3! We are excited to bring Nancy Head Thode, a family therapist from Connecticut, to present her one-woman musical show, Southern Belle Lives To Tell, at the Holiday Inn Mount Pleasant. The performance will be preceded by a social hour which will immediately follow Maurizio Andolfi s Friday presentation. Southern Belle Lives To Tell... has been produced at the Carriage House Theater in Norwalk, CT; in Greenwich, CT; on Fripp Island, SC; Hilton Head, SC, and in Nancy s home town of Beaufort, SC, to unanimous acclaim. Nancy entertains with tales of her adventurous and unusual family which settled in Beaufort in the 1860ies. Her mother, Ann Head Morse, was a well known Beaufort writer of the 1940s, 50s, and 60s, who introduced a young man named Pat Conroy to the joys and travails of writing, as chronicled in Pat s autobiography, Cookbook in the chapter, My First Novelist. Her father, Howard Head, became a well known inventor. Nancy s stories of her loves, her challenges, and successes, bring men and women alike to laughter and to tears. Over 15 songs, many familiar to audiences, are sung by Nancy and interwoven into her story. The show chronicles love stories, family stories and survival stories, adventures and misadventures while growing up in Beaufort, South Carolina in the 1950ies, and learning to live with crinolines, hoop skirts and The Rules associated with being an aspiring southern belle. As Nancy moves on to Ashley Hall in Charleston, then New York, Baltimore and Connecticut, she regales audiences with what she learns about life and love along the way. Excerpts from the show: Rule #1: An aspiring Southern Belle must never make a spectacle of herself. 2 The Palmetto Family Issue 1, 2011
3 Rule # 2: A good Southern Belle must never appear chubby. But, I mean, come on. Here I was, living in the land of fried chicken, fried shrimp, fried fish, friend okra, fried tomatoes, fried sweet potatoes, fried hush puppies, fried hominy grits, fried biscuits, fried rice, fried gravy, fried pickles, fried. pecan pie!? The Southern Motto: If you can eat it, honey, you can fry it. Now you tell me how to stay skinny and grow up Southern. Besides. Rule # 5: A good Southern Belle never makes out. Girls had to pretend to be sexy, but not BE sexy. In the 11th grade I left Beaufort and moved 50 miles north to Charleston, South Carolina. Ashley Hall. Boarding school. No place knows rules like boarding schools. I mean, they just invite breaking: Don t hang your clothes out the window. Don t wave at people from your bedroom window. I mean, who would have even thought of it? Of course we had to do it. You know those times in your life when you re going along and everything is just fine, and then you go around a corner, and boom! Something happens that turns your life upside down. Momma had a stroke and died. One day here, the next day gone. She was 52. She d been so happy because I was going to give her her first grandchild.

Local MFTs Study with Maurizio Andolfi, M.D. in Rome, Italy, December 13-18, 2010 By Sallie Campbell, LISW-CP, LSMFT, DCSW, Supervision Chair Fourteen Family Therapists went to Italy in December with the Haber Group to study at the Family Therapy Institute of Rome with Maurizio Andolfi, M.D. Karen and Russell Haber, Ph.D. s arranged this opportunity for their supervisees and others who were interested in the Rome practicum experience. Russell and Karen first met Maurizio Andolfi in 1981, and have remained professional colleagues and personal friends. Participants included Russell Haber, Karen Cooper- Haber, Vince Ward, Barbara Sheridan, Melle Dalton, Rhea Merck, Pat Burr, Joe Simons, Julie Martin, Sarah Wright, Danielle Allen, Karen Brown, Sallie Campbell, and David Hudgens. Pat and Joe joined us from Germany, and Karen Brown came from Hungary for this rich experience. Loredana Di Giuseppe Kremlick of Columbia was our interpreter. Each day we gathered at Casa della Palma to start our hike to the Academy of Psychotherapy with the Family (L Accademia Dipsicoterapia della famiglia). After our walk, we d settle in with a cappuccino and fellowship before starting our training. The walking gave us an opportunity to explore our surroundings and to give ourselves permission to indulge in the wonderful Italian food! Maurizio Andolfi, M.D., has over 40 years of experience working with Child Psychiatry and Psychology Departments and has continued training psychiatrists, psychologists and family therapists. Rome is the only country where psychiatry and neurology training programs are combined. Historically, Italy, France and Argentina were dominated by psychoanalysis. Now that systemic theory is increasing, there is more demand for family therapy. Family Therapy with the Milan School started in 1968 and Family Therapy in Rome began in Behind the Family Mask (1983), Andolfi s second book, was South Carolina therapists journey to Rome and written when experience Maurizio Andolfi s training institute. he worked with chronically psychotic patients. The passion for family therapy is very much alive in Rome, where trainees spend their entire first year presenting their own genograms. At Andolfi s training institute, a five-year program, genograms are used to understand the family of origin dynamics. The first year students are expected to tour their own family by bringing their genogram to class and telling about their parents and grandparents. They identify the most relevant event in their family and discuss this with the class. The assignment includes identifying the triads, the ones most activated in the family. They talk about what happened to the people in their family. Questions are not asked in a 1:1 way, they are relational questions about other family members, such as What happened to your father when he was your age? The goal is to redefine the family context. Through the genogram experience, students learn to be more differentiated themselves. They learn to analyze the positives in their families, process hidden secrets, and learn self-differentiation. The class itself becomes a small family with family dynamics to work through. It is not unusual for The Palmetto Family Issue 1,
4 a student to reconstruct their genogram multiple times as more and more details are disclosed. Themes in the family of origin are explored and resources identified that give strength to the trainees ability to creatively use themselves in therapy. Some of the key components to Andolfi s approach are to teach students to let the family do the work, to look for the strengths of the family, and to introduce those hidden resources to the rest of the family. Andolfi stresses asking relational questions, and at times suggests experiments to help identify the family views. His approach is to elicit resources from the family. Examples of relational questions are as follows: Does a child s birth, unite or divide parents? How did fault come into the therapy room? What was going on in your family when you were in your mother s womb? Is he a father you can talk to? Why did you not ask your father to come today? Did you die first as a husband or as a father? 4 The Palmetto Family Issue 1, 2011 The Palmetto Family Family therapy deals with the primary triads in relationships, not dual relationships. Our focus was on recognizing the interactions among family members; such as by looking at how the child responds to both parents. Andolfi says there are common threads across cultures: children universally take responsibility for divorce, children universally want to protect their parents, and parents need to be in charge. Andolfi believes in using the children as consultants in therapy and in inviting missing family members to the sessions, and at times, involving friends or other members of the community as resources. Andolfi appreciated how Scott Miller, PhD emphasizes relationships, as he ends his sessions with, How was this meeting for both of you? Time was spent discussing what really produces change in families. The truth opens possibilities for change. The therapist s goal is to listen to the voice of the family. Andolfi s approach is to ask help of the person in the family who has the most to offer; often this is the person with the problem. His first move is to ask, How important are you in bringing the family to therapy? He then sends a clear and direct message through the client for others to join the therapy. He stresses to never give up, but always look to see if you need to change your angle. Connection and relationships are important in training, therapy, and in the community as a whole. In therapy and in training, fun is the key. Andolfi uses creativity and play as he works with trainees and families. During this training experience, I became more aware of how personal and professional growth are so closely intertwined. While most participants agreed that their own therapy would be important, it is often not affordable. Andolfi places a lot of emphasis on the self of the therapist and encourages the use of self as a vehicle to help a family. Andolfi believes that what gets stimulated in the heart, gets explained by the brain, and is interpersonally connected through the hands; it s all about how we touch others lives. Our Rome experience included presentations by other members of Andolfi s Institute staff, his wife, Lorena s work at the Andolfi-Silvano Institute with immigrants and marginalized individuals and groups. We observed work of former Andolfi trainees, Flavia Posabella and Giuseppi Espositoin both their individual and group therapy sessions, and a visit with Massimo Ravenna, a family therapist friend of the Haber s, for a seminar on his approach to working with couples. Flavia and Giuseppe have visitied South Carolina for the past 3 years in order to train at the USC Counseling Center, Richland School District Two s family intervention program and Satir Family Camp in California. It was the day spent with Giuseppi at the Gypsy Camp, where he works, that was also one of the highlights of the week. I came in contact with Gypsies while traveling in Hungary and wanted to know more about their culture. There were approximately 1100 residents in the legal camp with three main religions: Muslim, Catholic, and Christian Orthodox. The gypsies come from various countries; Romania, Salvania, and Bosnia. There were about 40 employees, 20 full-time and 20 part time. There were both legal and illegal villages. The Gypsy Camp we visited in Salone was outside the city limits of Rome. A major problem related to the school age children is the lack of integration into the local schools. In the camp, often grandparents, parents, and children lived in one home/ trailer. The largest home trailers had two small bedrooms, and living room and kitchen combination. The homes we visited were kept clean and families were gracious. One woman, Slavia, fixed us coffee and then read the coffee grinds (fortunes) of one of our members. Although there are many helpers at the gypsy camp, psychotherapists have only been part of the team for the past 4-5 years. Flavia works for the Center for Minor Justice and has also done psychotherapy and multiple family groups with Gypsy families. The goal is to integrate cultures, but allow them to keep their own cultural identity. One of the areas of training in Andolfi s Institute is that of Cultural Mediators and these individuals serve in the Andolfi-Silvano foundation as well as in other contexts as language/culture facilitators. Their multidisciplinary team consists of a social worker, educators, cultural mediators, and marriage and family therapists. In their presentation to our group at the Foundation, they discussed how they help each other stay safe and creative. This approach helps to prevent burn out in this very intense and challenging work. South Carolina Therapists bridge the cultural differences by enjoying Italian cuisine and hospitality.
5 Upon returning from this 6-day adventure in Italy, I have resonated with new awarenessses. I have wondered if our way of mentoring new MFTs could be to offer them therapy while they are in their training years? With this approach as a standard of training, we could grow as a clinician which might have a larger impact on society as a whole. Growing the field of marriage and family therapy with therapists who truly understand systemic thought and the importance of their own story and authenticity could benefit families now and in the future. If you want to know more about Andolfi s approach, I have listed several books that are available for your reference. Books will also be on sale at the conference.

THE BEST PRACTICES JIHAD: Holy Wars in Psychotherapy Vincent P. Ward, Ph.D., LSMFT, LSPC, AS/ AAMFT, DAPA, DABFC We all want psychotherapists to use the best possible practices, right? It would be unethical not to, right? Not so fast. Best practices is one side of an old argument between science and art dressed up in new clothes. Science wants outcome research to identify the most effective treatments for specific diagnoses. This is the socalled medical model of mental illness : first diagnose, then treat; the treatment is determined by the diagnosis. Art insists on the importance of the client s investment in the process, the therapist s intuition and creativity, and the relationship between client and therapist. Despite my early training as a scientist, that s my crowd. The pro-science crowd has lately reached a new low, led by Dr. Timothy Baker, a psychologist. His approach is to demonize, Limbaugh-like, the strengths of the opposition by stigmatizing them, labeling them unprofessional charlatans. (This is his actual language.) How sad that my profession has joined the cultural deterioration that morphs respectful civil debate into passionate proclamations of absolute truth, and honest differences of opinion into jihad. In psychotherapy, the best practices movement is a stepchild of the medical model of mental illness. The alternative belief which, respected, ought to become the other side of an ongoing, mutually respectful debate, is this: most mental illness is not medical in nature, but psychic, of the psyche. Psyche is Greek for Soul, so psychology is (or ought to be) the logic of the Soul, and psychotherapy the healing of the Soul. This isn t a religiously-driven position. In fact, it s more psyche-logical than medical model. It asserts that built into the individual psyche there is a sort of compass that points out our own true north, a path through each life that discovers its unique meaning and purpose along the way., The soul knows when we re off the path, which is when we become symptomatic we get depressed, anxious, angry, paranoid, bored, whatever. In artful psychotherapy, the symptom is considered a clue to the dysfunction of the compass. To define it as a medical problem that must be eliminated is in fact to further disable the compass. We suggest that fixing the compass is more important than curing the symptom. Psychotherapy as art serves the function of all the arts: to bridge the gap between the concrete, literal world the rational one where we must pay the bills, maintain the car, set broken bones, and have health insurance and the world of spirit and soul, which is nonlinear, nonrational, metaphorical, symbolic, and uninsured. In other words, psychotherapy-as-art tries to reconnect the two worlds by re-establishing their relationship, repairing the individual s compass so that his or her personal true north can be relocated and life s journey restored to balance and integrity. This should not be a contest. Neither science nor art in psychotherapy is wrong; it s the balance that s critical. The wisest artists consider the results of science, using them to modify or question their approaches. The wisest scientists make allowances for the mysterious aspects of emotional wounding and healing. Some name it God, while others are content with naming it mystery. The Truth is one; the sages call it by many names. says the Hindu proverb. The notion that one sage is correct and all others wrong is the cause of much conflict, from intra-individual to interpersonal to religious to political to international. Taken to extremes, it leads to suicide bombing and swiftboating, to chaotic rage and fanaticism. While this jihad won t go to such extremes, it s discouraging that my beloved profession of psychotherapy, one of the three remaining professions the other two being the clergy and the artists that could rally the force of the imagination as it encounters the assault by rationality on the Soul, is taking its place alongside religion and politics by escalating differences into holy wars over dogma. In our America, science is a god and belief a dictator. The outlook for souls is not good. The Palmetto Family Issue 1,
