NCU’s MFT master’s degree program will help you develop the skills and facilitate personal and professional growth that is needed for effective practice in the field of Marriage and Family Therapy. Coursework and training is designed to follow the guidelines of the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT), which are the same guidelines used by most states to establish required courses to satisfy licensure requirements.
When divorce and other strife enters the lives of children and teens, it often takes a sensitive professional to help them and their families weather these storms. The Child and Adolescent Family Therapy specialization is designed to prepare you to work in therapeutic settings with children and adolescents using a family therapy, systems approach. In this specialization you will be required to complete two focused content courses, a research course focusing on issues related to working with children, adolescents and families, as well as complete at least 100 hours of clinical experience in an approved setting under the guidance of a qualified local supervisor.
This program requires face-to-face clinical hours and supervision.
