MA Student Receives Agent of Change Award

Beth Greivel, Master's student and Graduate Instructor at The Wright Institute, will be presented with the "Agent of Change" award by Gaylesta, the LGBT Psychotherapy Association on January 25, 2015.

Ms. Greivel is being recognized for her work with CAMFT to amend its policy to condemn sexual orientation change efforts (SOCE), also known as reparative, reorientation or conversion therapies. Ms. Greivel shares this honor with Jim Walker, who was also instrumental in effecting this change. Ms. Greivel's ongoing work includes a proposal to CAMFT to change its Code of Ethics to make it unethical for CAMFT members to practice SOCE. If this change goes into effect, CAMFT would be the first psychotherapy association to codify SOCE restrictions.
