Committee Reports: One of the most important functions of the newsletter is to keep Marin CAMFT members informed about what is happening within the community, the chapter and the state organization that may have an affect them and others in the profession. The Newsletter Team expects each committee to submit an article for each edition of CONNECTIONS.

Human Interest: This could be on virtually any topic that you think the membership would be interested in and that is broadly related to marriage and family counseling. For example, you may want to write about a significant incident in your life, or the life of a friend, family member or client that has affected you on a personal level and/or in your therapeutic practice. (Maximum: 3000 words)

Book Review: Many of us don’t have time to read the important new books being published on counseling and psychotherapy. If you have read a really good book, we’d like you to share it with us! Tell us something about the author, summarize the main points of the book, and explain why it is significant/worth reading. (Maximum: 3000 words).

Research Article: The Marin CAMFT newsletter will publish its members' research-based articles on the theory and/or practice of counseling and psychotherapy. Articles should include: an introduction, a review of the pertinent literature, a brief critical analysis and a statement about the implications for clinical practice. (Maximum:3,000 words)

Biographical Statement: Each article should include a brief biographical statement followed by contact information and a photo. (Maximum: 300 words)
