Below you will find local and statewide initiatives that are calling for mental health professionals to support front-line healthcare workers and first responders as well as the public at large during the COVID-19 crisis.

 

(Please note: CAMFT is not directly affiliated with any of these initiatives and is not responsible for their actions or CAMFT member interactions with these organizations.)

Considerations for Returning to In-Person Sessions

 

Guidance, resources, and considerations are beginning to emerge from professional organizations and liability providers regarding returning to in-person sessions as state restrictions are eased. SFCAMFT encourages following local laws, guidelines, and health orders. The decision to return (or not) will be unique to each therapist, and SFCAMFT supports this individual process in addition to highlighting general support and guidelines that are emerging.

  • The American Psychological Association offers guidance on what to consider when deciding to return to in-person service, including a checklist of actions to reduce risk of infection in the workplace. Notably, the APA also offers a sample informed consent form to give to clients in the light of COVID-19.
  • State CAMFT offers general pandemic guidance for members, with some guidance on building your “back to business” plan.
  • The Trust, the main liability insurer for psychologists, outlined guidance on issues in returning to in-person services. Notably, the Trust also is reported to have sent to its policyholders a letter raising several important but difficult issues regarding liability and safety which therapists will want to consider. CPH and Associates also has considerations for therapists in returning to in-person practice.
  • The American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy offers general pandemic guidance for members, though does not yet specifically address in depth issues of returning to in-person practice.
