Grievance Policy

Culture Ally is fully committed to conducting all activities in strict conformance with the requirements and standards of the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists CEPA program and the National Association of Social Workers CE Approval Program.

The monitoring and assessment of compliance with these standards will be the responsibility of the Program Administrator in consultation with the social work consultant and psychologist consultant. 

While Culture Ally goes to great lengths to assure fair treatment for all participants and attempts to anticipate problems, there will be occasional issues that come to the attention of the conference/workshop staff which will require intervention and/or action on the part of the staff. This procedural description serves as a guideline for handling such grievances.

When a participant reports a grievance and expects action on the complaint, the following actions will be taken.

  3. If the grievance concerns a workshop offering, its’ content, level of presentation, or the facilities in which the workshop was offered, the Program Administrator will mediate and will be the final arbitrator. If the participant requests action, the Program Administrator will:
    • attempt to move the participant to another workshop or
    • provide a credit for another workshop or
    • provide a partial or full refund of the workshop fee.
  4. Confidential records of all grievances, the process of resolving the grievance, and the outcome will be kept in the locked files of the Program Administrator.
