Grievance Policy: An Approved CEU Provider by CAMFT’s CEPA Program, Jerome Front, LMFT/ Program Director, is committed to conducting all activities in strict conformance with the CAMFT’s, AAMFT’s, and the APA’s (American Psychological Association) Ethical Principles. Jerome Front, LMFT will comply with all legal and ethical responsibilities to be non-discriminatory in promotional activities, program content and in the treatment of program participants. The monitoring of compliance with these standards will be the responsibility of the Program Director.  While Jerome Front, LMFT goes to great lengths to assure fair treatment for all participants and attempts to anticipate problems, there will be occasional issues which come to our attention which will require intervention and/or action on the part of the Program Director and/or Instructor.  There will always be an attempt to resolve the concern immediately, in person, in a reasonable and agreeable manner.  However, if not resolved in person, the following description serves as a guideline for handling such a grievance:

 

1) Participants will be asked to submit their concern in a written form, either by email or letter.  Their written complaint must include their contact information including: name, street address, email and phone #s, so we can respond in a timely manner.  An email would be sent to:  Jerome@JeromeFront.com;  A letter would be mailed to: Jerome Front, LMFT, 12456 Ventura Blvd, Ste #2A, Studio City, CA, 91604.

Within 10 business days of receiving the written concern, we will respond with a written, proposed solution, and when appropriate, also make an attempt to follow-up with a phone call.

2) When a participant, files a grievance and expects action on the complaint, the following actions will be taken:

If the grievance concerns a speaker, the content presented by the speaker, or the style of presentation, the individual filing the grievance will be asked to put his/her comments in written format. The Program Director will then pass on the comments to the speaker, assuring the confidentiality of the grieved individual.

3) If the grievance concerns a workshop offering, its’ content, level of presentation, or the facilities in which the workshop was offered, the Program Director will mediate and will be the final arbitrator. If the participant requests action, the Program Director will:
a. Provide a credit for a subsequent year's workshop, or
b. Provide a partial or full refund of the workshop fee.

 Actions 3a and 3b will require a written note, documenting the grievance, for record keeping purposes.  The note need not be signed by the concerned individual.

 If the grievance concerns the CE program, in a specific regard, the Program Director will attempt to arbitrate. 

 

Fragrance Sensitivity: To keep the environment free from unnecessary irritants, participants are ask to refrain from using heavily scented perfumes, colognes or other products. 

 

For any questions or more information,  please email or call Jerome Front, LMFT:  818-760-7725.
