Where family health care decision makers go first to find you

Creating a web page for your practice, using Facebook, Linkedin and other social media are sure ways to drive new client traffic your way. Want some tried and true (and pretty darn cheap) ideas on using social media to boost your clientele. Click the headers below to get started or enhance your Social Media presence:

Google Adwords Spend as much or as little as you want to get your message and information out to the public. You only pay when someone clicks on your ad. Here’s an overview of how Google Adwords works.


Facebook Fan Page  If you really want to leverage social networking and promote yourself, business or organization, then creating a Facebook Fan Page is a great way to go. You control the message and allow your “fans” to respond. You can even delete fan comments that are “unfortunate.” Remember, every time someone shares something from your fan page on their Facebook page, your audience goes up exponentially, meaning more people than you ever imagined are seeing your message and are becoming potential clients. Learn more about Facebook Fan Pages and get step by step directions on setting up your practice’s fan page.


LinkedIn is the world’s largest professional network with over 75 million members and growing rapidly. LinkedIn connects you to your trusted contacts and helps you exchange knowledge, ideas, and opportunities with a broader network of professionals. Connect with professional sources of referrals and others who can help you advance your career


    Please join the CTAMFT Board of Directors, along with the Ethics Committee and fellow members in a casual meet and greet.  Engage in an hour-long conversation about AAMFT’s revised Code of Ethics, which became effective January 1, 2015. The 2015 AAMFT Code of Ethics includes new language in the Preamble, revised language throughout the Code and two brand new standards, including “technology-assisted professional services.” A conversation about the changes from the 2012 version to the 2015 version will be featured with deeper discussion about the two new standards.

  • AAMFT Restructure Vote Results Are In

    Dear Connecticut Membership,


    The results of AAMFT’s recent call for partial by-law changes that would include eliminating the state divisions are in.


    The vote DID NOT PASS.  This means the vote to eliminate the state divisions did not pass.  The result percentages per state were published, and in CT, we were very close to 50% in favor of keeping the CT division in tack; while 50% voted for elimination.  Many of the other states were either slightly or significantly in favor of the change, and a few states were strongly not opposition.  We do not have the number of voters per state, so we do not yet know what percentage of the membership voted.  We do know that AAMFT needed a 2/3 vote (66.6%) to pass and only received 61%. 


    What does this mean for us here in CT?  For now, it means that nothing changes in terms of how your dues are distributed, including day-to-day operations of the Connecticut division.  We do anticipate that AAMFT will have a backup plan, which we expect to hear more about at this year’s national conference in Austin September 3-6.  I am pleased to represent you, along with several of our Board members, as well as our Student Representative.  We will gather as much information as possible and share it with you after reviewing at our next Board meeting on September 11.


    Thank you to everyone who took the time to talk to all of us on the Board and who contributed to the rich discussions and provided feedback.  Thank you for taking the time to vote on this important topic. 


    Warm regards for a happy fall, and I will be in touch soon.



    Heather Ehinger

    President, CTAMFT
