A Presentation by Dr. Ben Caldwell

We have decades of data proving that psychotherapy works. But data also shows that spending on therapy is rapidly declining -- fewer people are coming -- as training costs and requirements increase. MFTs at all career levels are impacted by these trends, which are already pushing some well-qualified therapists out of the field.

In this fast-paced, data-driven, and ultimately optimistic presentation, you will learn specific steps you can take on an individual basis to improve your own practice, while saving our field from becoming one by and for the wealthy.

Dr. Benjamin Caldwell is a licensed marriage and family therapist (#42723) serving on the faculty for California State University Northridge and The Wright Institute in Berkeley, CA. He is the author of five books, including Basics of California Law for LMFTs, LPCCs, and LCSWs, which is now on its fourth edition, and Saving Psychotherapy, which is the topic of this talk. In his role as Chair of the Legislative and Advocacy Committee for the California Division of AAMFT, he has been directly involved in successful efforts to ease the pathway to licensure for MFT interns, and he drove the change in title from "intern" to "associate" that is now in state law and will take effect for MFT and PCC interns in 2018. For his advocacy work, he was awarded the AAMFT Division Contribution Award in 2013. He maintains a private practice in Los Angeles.
