CFAMFT provides education, supervision, and advocacy for the profession of marriage and family therapy. CFAMFT operates as an autonomous not-for-profit entity. The Association leads the way to increasing understanding, research, and education in the field of marriage and family therapy, and ensures that public needs are met by well-trained practitioners. Clinical members of CFAMFT have completed specific post-graduate training in Marriage and Family Therapy as well as extensive supervised clinical practice with couples and families.
CFAMFT members are employed in a variety of settings including social service agencies, private clinics, hospitals, universities, and independent practices. Members of CFAMFT are also licensed by the Florida Department of Health (under Chapter 491) as Marriage and Family Therapists, Mental Health Counselors, Social Workers, or Psychologists. Members of all related professions are required to participate in ongoing continuing education to maintain their licensure in order to practice therapy in the State of Florida.
Marriage and Family Therapists and their colleagues do not condone or engage in discrimination or refuse professional services to anyone on the basis of age, race, gender, gender identity, ethnicity, culture, class, spiritual tradition, marital status or ability. Marriage and Family Therapists and their colleagues value diversity and seek social justice for all with special awareness to those most frequently disenfranchised, such as oppressed groups.
