Satellite Telecast for Marriage/Family Therapist License Airs Nov. 15

A live training telecast for individuals seeking the California Marriage and Family Therapist license will be broadcast live via satellite from California State University, Fresno to sites throughout the state on Wednesday, Nov. 15, from 5 to 6:30 p.m.

The 90 minute telecast, “On The Road To Licensure” — produced by Fresno State’s Digital Production Group for the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists (CAMFT) — will originate from DPG’s Television Studio A in the Speech Arts Building.

Featured presenters will include Mary Riemersma, executive director of CAMFT for 16 years, and Sherry Mehl, executive officer of the Board of Behavioral Sciences.

The live training for CAMFT members uses a studio audience and will be hosted by H. Dan Smith, past president of CAMFT and a counseling and special education professor at Fresno State. The satellite telecast will be beamed to about 25 sites throughout California, said John Reynolds, production manager for DPG.

The program is designed for graduate students, interns, supervisors, and therapist educators as part of the California Marriage and Family Therapist license process. CAMFT, based out of San Diego, is a nonprofit corporation made up of state-chartered professional chapters throughout California whose focus is the advancement of marriage and family therapy as an art, a science and a mental health profession.

Digital Production Group, which has now produced three programs for CAMFT, is a part of the Academic Innovation Center at Fresno State and produces educational television and media projects for the university and its constituents.
