Change to Mentor Day Effective March 31, 2020

In response to the needs of our general membership during the COVID-19 pandemic, WAMFT Mentor Day and Executive Committee decided to convert WAMFT's Mentor Day into a free 3-hour webinar event for all WAMFT Members, entitled "Counseling in the Time of Corona" (free CEs will be provided to attendees).

Saturday, April 25, 2020 from 9am to 12:30pm

Participants shared that the event was "thought-provoking for new and seasoned therapists alike," "instrumental in my formation as a student working toward licensure,” and “helpful for my context as a recent graduate.” Another said, "it's getting better every year!”

You are not alone on your path to licensure.

- Kim McBride, LMFT
