A Message from your RRC-CAMFT President

Happy 2021 RRC-CAMFT Members & Returning Members,

Welcome to the 27th year of RCC-CAMFT. That's right! Our chapter was founded in September of 1994. The 2021 Board looks forward to carrying on the traditions that RCC-CAMFT is known for and we are excited to provide excellent training opportunities this year.

The pandemic has been difficult for so many of us, and I know we have all experienced an increase in stress and mental health crisis over the last year. The demand for services feels greater than ever in our community. I hope you are all remaining healthy and emotionally well during this unprecedented time. 

As difficult as it has been, we have found a silver lining to the pandemic. Because our trainings will continue to be held through Zoom, we have been able to pursue known experts in our field to present to our local chapter here in Redding.

We are excited to announce that Debi Jenkkins Frankle, LMFT, form the Calabasas Counseling and Grief Center will be presenting in January.    

January 28th @ 5:30 p.m. via Zoom

The Surreal World of Surviving in a Pandemic: It's impact on our clients, ourselves and how to provide care and sanity for all. 

Please watch your email for additional information on our first training.....

Also, it may be time to renew your membership. Please log in to the website where you can update your information, renew your membership, and include yourself in our therapist directory. Our therapist directory is one of the benefits of membership and is often used by other professionals in the community to find mental health referrals. Please follow this link to our website... http://www.rrccamft.orgIf you have any questions in regards to membership please contact Danni Mason, LMFT at

CHANGES: As the pandemic continues, we have made some temporary changes to our "monthly meeting" schedule. We are very aware that "one more Zoom meeting" can be very taxing for our members and our board right now; therefore, we will hold our "monthly meetings" on an every other month basis until we are able to meet in person. Training times and schedules may vary, so we will send training information as early and often as possible to keep our members informed. We also plan to provide networking events if we are able to meet in person before December.

I am looking forward to working with our new board and continuing RCC-CAMFT's traditions in the upcoming year. If you have any interest in a leadership position with our board, please contact me at


Shauna Havlina, LMFT

    RRC-CAMFT January Monthly Meeting

    The Surreal World of Surviving in a Pandemic:

    It’s impact on our clients, ourselves

    and how to provide care and sanity for all.

    Presented by Debi Jenkins Frankle, LMFT

    From the Calabasas Counseling & Grief Center

    Debi Jenkins Frankle, LMFT is an expert in the field of grief. Debi has been working with clients suffering from lifetimes of loss for over 25 years. She and husband, Mark Frankle LMFT, are the co-founders of the Calabasas Counseling and Grief Recovery Center. Debi is also the founder of Private Practice Grief Workshops and Trainings for Mental Health Professionals as well as the FB group for clinicians: Private Practice Grief. She is an adjunct professor at The Graduate School of Education and Psychology at Pepperdine University.


    Pandemic related loss is multilayered with the agony of Anticipatory Grief and invalidation of

    Disenfranchised Losses. This calls for a re-examination of how we define loss, recognize grief, deal with the inability to participate in traditional mourning rituals and support our clients while we are experiencing our own grief.

    Certain key factors impact our grieving. We will be discussing how to take these into consideration when working with clients impacted by loss. Anticipatory grief and disenfranchised grieving experiences have complicated this process over the last year.

    This workshop will also teach you to recognize the 7 areas of our clients’ lives that are impacted by grief: Cognitive, Physical, Emotional, Spiritual, Social, Family, and Work.

    We will also be differentiating between grief and trauma, and examining how traumatic loss can complicate grief.

    Once you know how grief can specifically show up in your clients, you can begin to name and

    normalize this experience for them. Come join us to help our clients and ourselves to regain our footing in this surreal world of pandemic loss.

    This course is designed for LMFTs, LCSWs, LPCCs, and/or LEPs.


    1. Equip clinicians with the knowledge to understand the grief, mourning, loss and trauma that

    many have experienced, during this pandemic.

    2. Provide clinicians with the symptoms and signs of grief in 7 areas of functioning: Cognitive,

    Physical, Emotional, Spiritual, Social, Family and Work.

    3. Provide at least 3 resources to use with clients and ourselves to provide care for grieving and healing.
