    You are Invited: Self-Care Retreat

    We appreciate the work you do as professionals in the healing arts and would love for you to join us for a self-care retreat on our lovely central coast.  This is open to all who work in the helping professions, not just therapists.  Feel free to spread the word to your colleagues.

    Here is the info:

    What to bring: comfortable clothes to move in, yoga mat, water bottle, your own snacks to eat on break if you wish to

    Cost: Sliding scale $15, $25, or $35 (CCC-CAMFT will cover any additional costs as a gift to you; the fee you opt to pay will not show publicly when you register-- only your name will)

    *Note: No walk-ins as we will be capping the number of participants at 30 due to the facility capacity and for COVID safety measures.  If you are interested in attending a retreat and cannot make this event, let us know and if there is enough interest, we will offer future retreats.

    Grievance
    While the Central Coast Chapter of CAMFT makes every effort to assure fair treatment for all participants and attempts to anticipate problems, there will be occasional issues with regard to presentations/workshops which will require intervention and/or action on the part of the board. This procedural description serves as a guideline for handling such grievances.

    When a participant files a grievance and expects action on the complaint, the following actions will be taken:

    1. The participant(s) will be asked to put concerns in writing (this can be in electronic form, such as an email).
    2. If the grievance concerns a presenter, the content presented by the speaker, or the style of presentation, the individual filing the grievance will be asked to put his/her comments in written format. The Board will then pass on the comments to the speaker, assuring the confidentiality of the grieved individual.
    3. If the grievance concerns a presentation/workshop offering, its content, level of presentation, or the facilities in which the workshop was offered, the Board will mediate and will be the final arbitrator. If the participant requests action, the Board will:
        • provide a credit for a subsequent presentation/workshop or
        • provide a partial or full refund of the presentation/workshop fee

        Refund Policy
        Refund policy for all events: Registrants who do not attend or fail to cancel registration seven days prior to scheduled event will be charged full fee. The only exception will be for registrants who are unable to attend due to an emergency.
