AAMFT AT A GLANCE
he AAMFT provides a unified voice for all marriage and family therapists, mental health, and allied
professionals. We believe that relationships are foundational to the health and well-being of individuals, all
forms of the family, and communities. We know that family therapy is effective and that family therapy works.
We also believe that consumers should have access to mental health care, including the services of marriage
and family therapists.
The AAMFT is the primary advocate for the profession and the primary force for advancing the practice of family therapy.
Our staff and leaders meet regularly with legislators and principals of health care organizations to persuade them that
family therapy is effective and that family therapists should be accepted throughout the health care system.
The AAMFT works to ensure that family therapists are accepted as mental health care providers. We assist the profession
by: providing continuing education and career development to family therapists, mental health and allied professionals;
training future family therapy practitioners, educators, and researchers; promoting research that advances family therapy
practice, and offering excellent benefits and services to our members.
BUILDING A PROFESSION
n the beginning of the twentieth century, families faced new challenges. With the emergence of
industrialization, urbanization, and increased life expectancy, traditional family and gender roles changed,
and families faced new societal pressures. The public found that they needed professionals who could help
them cope with these changes and restore their families’ strength. Marital therapy and later family therapy
were born out of this public demand. Powerful new treatment methods based on family systems theories strengthened
families and restored hope.
The latter part of the twentieth century brought many alterations to the term “family,” and the dawn of the twenty-first
century has seen even more changes to the traditional family landscape. As even more shifts in society emerge,
families are transforming far beyond traditional definitions. Today’s families face many tough challenges, and now,
more than ever, society needs the skills of marriage and family therapists.
For 70 years the AAMFT has helped to build the practice of marriage and family therapy into a recognized and
legitimate profession. The AAMFT continues to promote and advance the common professional interests of all marriage
and family therapists (MFTs) and strives to achieve parity, professional excellence, and public recognition for MFTs.
Today, marriage and family therapy is one of the five core mental health disciplines as defined in federal law and by
the Health Resources and Services Act (HRSA), with more than 50,000 licensed marriage and family therapists in the
United States, and the profession continues to grow.
MEMBERS SPEAK:
“I just have to tell you that your literature, publications, and general information are the VERY BEST
of any organization of which I have been a member. I am so glad you exist, because you are the
only organization that doesn’t bore me. Your information is TOP NOTCH.” — Lita Perna

Minority Fellowship Program
The AAMFT Minority Fellowship Program’s objective is to
expand the delivery of culturally competent mental health
and substance abuse services to underserved minority
populations and to increase the number of doctoral level,
culturally competent, ethnic minority Marriage and Family
therapists. Our goal is to do this by providing financial
support and professional guidance to ethnic minority
graduate students pursuing doctoral degrees in Marriage
and Family therapy.
Funded by a grant from the Substance Abuse and Mental
Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), AAMFT has
created the Minority Fellowship Program to support the
training of practitioners or practitioner/researchers in
culturally competent mental health and substance abuse
services, treatment, and prevention. This fellowship program
is directed at Marriage and Family Therapy doctoral
students who are committed to research about and service
to ethnic minority and underserved populations.
An MFP fellowship is more than a simple scholarship that
only provides financial support. An MFP fellowship is a
professional training appointment into a community of other
students and professionals who hold similar professional
interests. Indeed, the MFP provides stipends or living
allowances to students who hold the fellowships. However,
we also facilitate leadership development and provide
professional guidance with the aim of deepening the skills
sets and knowledge base of the fellows in areas related to
minority mental health research and services.
To receive more information about the Minority Fellowship
Program or to view the requirements for application please

Commission on Accreditation for Marriage and
Family Therapy Education (COAMFTE)
AMFT’s Commission on Accreditation for Marriage and Family Therapy Education (COAMFTE) is a
specialized accrediting body that accredits master’s degree, doctoral degree, and post-graduate degree
clinical training programs in marriage and family therapy throughout the United States and Canada.
The COAMFTE is made up of nine (9) Commissioners — seven (7) professional members and two (2) public
members. Professional Commission members must be senior marriage and family therapy educators or clinicians.
Public members represent the interests of the general public and are not professional marriage and family therapy
educators, supervisors, or practitioners.
Since 1978, the COAMFTE has been recognized by the United States Department of Education (USDE) as the national
accrediting body for the field of marriage and family therapy. In addition, the Council for Higher Education Accreditation
(CHEA) officially recognizes the COAMFTE. CHEA is a non-governmental organization that works to foster and facilitate
the role of accrediting bodies in promoting and insuring the quality and diversity of American post-secondary education.
The USDE and CHEA regularly review the policies and practices of the COAMFTE for continued recognition.
The COAMFTE accreditation standards often serve as the foundation for the development of individual credentialing and
state licensure requirements. The accreditation process is a voluntary process that requires self-study by the program, an
on-site review by a selected group of peers, and a review and decision by the COAMFTE to determine compliance with
accreditation standards. Once a program has become accredited, it is required to submit annual reports demonstrating
continued compliance with standards. Accreditation cycles vary for initial accreditation and re-accreditation and
programs are required to apply for renewal of accreditation.

therapy profession at work in live family therapy
sessions. Net proceeds from the sale of these

Foundation minority fellowship fund.
A Daughter Who Needs a Mother DVD
This session, recorded in 1991 by the
American Association for Marriage and
Family Therapy and digitally remastered in
2009, features Harry Aponte conducting
a live, unedited therapy session with a
family. The featured family is an African
American mother and her children
struggling with poverty and a legacy of deprivation.
The session demonstrates the Eco-System Model,
incorporating class, racial, and ethnic experiences of both
the family and therapist. Mother lacks confidence and skill
to parent her children, forcing her 14-year-old daughter
to do so. After running away from home to pursue the
attention of older men, her actions culminate in a suicide
gesture. An experience is created for the mother to reach
out to her daughter.

Escape From Bickering DVD
This session, recorded in 1989 by the
American Association for Marriage and
Family Therapy and digitally re-mastered
in 2007, features Michael White
conducting a live, unedited therapy session
with a family. The featured family includes
an 18-year-old who was institutionalized
for fire-setting. Through circular strategic and reflexive
questions and techniques of externalizing and mapping
the influence of problems, the family is helped to discover
new information about themselves. Concentration is on the
bickering between siblings and the theme of protest that
bonds the family to systems that patholize them. A reflecting
team is used to consolidate the family’s “new story” which
emerges in the session.

This session, recorded in 1988 by the
American Association for Marriage and
Family Therapy and digitally remastered in
2009, features Ivan Boszmormenyi-Nagy
conducting a live, unedited therapy session
with a family. The featured family includes
four generations consisting of a delinquent
adolescent, his chronically psychotic mother, grandparents,
and great-grand mother. Instead of reframes, paradoxical
injunctions, or restructuring, Nagy’s model employs
multidirected partiality, which includes discussing and
acknowledging everyone’s positive contributions to counter
their mistrust, blaming, and self-defeating invisible loyalties.

The Lost Boy DVD
This session, recorded in 1984 by the
American Association for Marriage and
Family Therapy and digitally re-mastered in
2007, features Virginia Satir conducting a
live, unedited therapy session with a family.
The featured family is a large intact family
with ten children whose presenting problem
is the grief following the loss of one of their children who is
missing a year after his abduction. During this experiential
session, the family is emotionally and physically engaged
through use of stairs, touch, and positioning to reflect the
mourning, intersibling rivalry and distances of the father.
This DVD offers an excellent demonstration of Satir’s open,
directive, and special style.

Usefulness of Non-Presenting
Symptoms DVD
This session, recorded in 1986 by the
American Association for Marriage and
Family Therapy and digitally remastered
in 2009, features Carl Whitaker conducting
a live, unedited therapy session with a
family. The featured family includes a
grandmother, mother, and two preadolescent sons.
The women are recent widows, and the boys were abused
by their deceased alcoholic father. Through pushing and
then drawing the family in, intergenerational rules that
hypnotize people to act in destructive ways are searched
out. Themes of suicidal behavior, depression, unresolved
grief and obesity become apparent as the family is
challenged to deal with issues in a healthier fashion.

Unfolding the Laundry DVD
This live therapy session, recorded in
1984 by the American Association
for Marriage and Family Therapy and
digitally re-mastered in 2007, features
Salvador Minuchin conducting a live
therapy session with a family. The featured
family is a large, blended, recently
married couple with dual-careers and five stepchildren.
The identified patient is the youngest son (age 11) who
is acting out. After defocusing attention on the identified
patient and re-labeling much of the sibling behavior,
attention is focused on the couple. The use of simplicity and
humor to lure the family into desiring the necessary change
and following the family’s lead in defining the problem
illustrates Minuchin’s expert ability at not being an expert.
