Certificate Program

MFI Post Graduate Certificate Training Program

One of the foremost post-graduate family therapy training programs in the country.

The Certificate Training Program incorporates intensive supervision for those interested in family therapy using live and videotaped cases, didactic lectures, and workshops. The program reflects the Institute’s re-visioning of family therapy to include issues of culture, class, race, gender, and sexual orientation within a systemic, multi-contextual, life cycle framework.  The program reflects an expanded conception of systems theory and human development through the life cycle. Trainees learn to work systemically with individuals, couples and families, the use of genograms, team case consultations and the interface between therapist and clients.

If you are interested in the Certificate Training Program, please download the application and submit with your resume. You will be contacted for an interview.
