Volunteering for the CACFT/ACTCF Emergency Response Team 

Thank you for your interest in being a part of the Emergency Response Team, we really appreciate your help! Please review the slides below which are an introduction to the ERT & Brief Crisis Therapy. If you are interested there is a level 1 training in Brief Crisis Therapy  available through the Brief Crisis Therapy Institute. BCTI was founded by the CAMFT members who created the ERT. Please use CAMFT25 to get a 25% discount on this training.

To be a volunteer we ask that you be licensed and/or have the appropriate credentials to practice in your jurisdiction. Students may participate in the ERT if their supervisor agrees to supervise the work they do and they have basic knowledge regarding brief crisis therapy models.

Please use these posts and poster to help us get the word out about the ERT!
