December 2017 - Jane Addams District Update

Carol H. Fisher, LCSW

Happy Holidays to Jane Addams District members!

By the time you receive this you will have successfully renewed your license (hopefully) and are ready to embark on the next two year cycle of meeting your CEU requirements!  I vow that I’m not going to wait until the last minute next time....how about you?  In the meantime I enjoyed meeting many of you at our November all day seminar with Jeff Zacharias.  He got some great discussions going and we really appreciate his willingness to come out from Chicago to lend us his expertise regarding the culture and ethics of treating members of the LGBTQ community.

In 2018, we’ll be launching a monthly Private Practice Forum - a gathering that’s been requested by many of our members.  After a survey of the best time and venue we’ve concluded that Tuesday breakfast meetings were the time most members could work with so our first meeting will be January 23rd at 7:30 a.m. at Johnny Pamcakes, 3700 E. State St., Rockford.  We’ll get a big table (breckfast on your own if you’d like) and discuss issues that impact private practitioners.  This group is designed for people who are now in practice and those who aspire to build a practice and might include issues like the use of technology, problems with insurance, how to get good referrals, etc. and also give us a chance to support each other in this challenging work.  Bring your business cards and ideas and plan to meet on the 4th Tuesday of each month.  Note: this is NOT meant to be a Cinical Supervision group.
