Benefits of Membership

Once the application process is completed you will be invited to utilize our many helpful networking resources.

Resources include, but are not limited to:

 Inclusion in the annual directory of therapists

Members joining before the July 1st deadline will secure inclusion in our hard copy directory as well as on our online list seen on this website.  Members joining after the July 1st deadline will not be afforded the luxury of a listing in our hard copy directory, but will be added to our online directory during the year.  Updates for our website listings are usually processed weekly.  Annually, our website is updated in early September and our hard copy edition of membership listings is published in mid-September.

 Use of our listserv email group

Joining this listserv will allow you to send an email to about 160+ members at once.  It is great for asking referral questions, announcing new aspects of your practice, maintaining a social action discussion on any particular topic and more.  You will also be receiving all emails from members and have the ability to just be updated and/or reply to any posted query or informational message.  There is no additional cost for signing on to this listserv service.  It is a privilege included in your membership fee.  Only members can be approved for participation of this service.

If you’d prefer to register by mail, you may do so by printing our registration form PDF and mailing it to the address listed.

 Opportunities for self-promotion

We currently offer quarterly topical luncheons for our members.  During these events, a speaker is engaged to offer enlightenment and information to our members about an aspect of their practice about which they are passionate.  We prefer to feature our members as presenters.  It is a great way to get noticed and to hone your public speaking skills.

 Inclusion on our mailing list

This is an automatic plus for our members.  We have many non-members and former members on our mailing list.  But you will be spared the extra effort of requesting this benefit.  We send out quarterly newsletters (which can also be viewed online) in which you will have an opportunity to place an advertisement or announcement.  Other mailings distributed from time to time include invitations to popular events such as our annual open house in Spring.

So feel free to email/phone me with any inquiries regarding this process.

Sincerely,

Kenneth Freedman, LICSW

SSCIT President & Listserv Moderator
