Psychologist Miriam Galindo is a member of a panel of experts used in family cases by the Orange County Superior Court in Southern California. Running a private practice with her husband, Dr. Jorge Galindo, she focuses on cases involving child custody and high-conflict divorce. Dr. Miriam Galindo is a member of the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists (CAMFT).

With over 32,000 members, CAMFT is dedicated to promoting the cause of licensed marriage and family therapists. As part of its continuing-education endeavor, CAMFT will be holding its 2019 Fall Symposium November 8-9, at the Hilton Irvine/Orange County Airport, in Irvine. One of the sessions to be presented is by Carla Rather, LFMT, who will introduce participants on how to effectively handle “Forgiveness Conversations” founded on the Attachment Injury Repair Model (AIRM) of Emotionally Focused Therapy.

It has been factually substantiated that 90 percent of couples experienced reduced relational distress using AIRM. Hostilities occur in relationships, and without a forgiveness process, the probability for connection and closeness with others diminishes. Aside from relationships, AIRM can also be used to facilitate healing in societal conflicts. To learn more about this session and the 2019 Fall Symposium, visit www.camft.org/fs19.

Since 2004, Miriam Galindo, PsyD, has provided co-parenting, child, family, and reunification therapy to clients in Irvine, California, through her own private practice. Active in her professional community, Dr. Miriam Galindo belongs to such organizations as the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists (CAMFT).

An independent professional organization, CAMFT establishes and promotes high ethical standards and advances the marriage and family therapy profession. Toward this end, it maintains the CAMFT Educational Foundation.

Established in 1977, this charitable organization awards grants and scholarships to help professionals earn their license as a marriage and family therapist. It also offers other assistance to people pursuing a job or conducting research in the field. This financial support largely comes from donations from members and other committed individuals. These gifts can be made in the form of a monetary gift using a credit card or check. Gifts of this kind provide immediate funding to grants and scholarships.

Individuals can also support the CAMFT Educational Foundation by shopping through Amazon Smile. Or they can make a bequest to the organization. Both methods are simple to establish. However, bequests have the added benefit of either establishing a new scholarship, donating in honor of a loved one, or designating funds for a specific purpose. Regardless of the method used, contributions made to the organization are entirely tax deductible.
