The Adler Graduate School offers a Master of Arts Degree in Adlerian Counseling and Psychotherapy with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy. The Marriage and Family Therapy emphasis does include an internship component and prepares students for licensure as a Marriage and Family Therapist in any state. This 57-credit degree requires successful completion of a combination of 25 required and elective courses and completion of a Master’s Project (i.e, thesis, integrative project).
With an educational focus on systems/relationships, Marriage and Family Therapy students are prepared to pursue the professional role of a multiculturally- informed, ethically sound psychotherapist who works in a variety of settings serving families, children and adolescents, couples, and individuals.
Adler Graduate School’s Marriage and Family Therapy emphasis is based on the State of Minnesota’s criteria for licensure as a Marriage & Family Therapist (LMFT) and the academic standards of the Commission on Accreditation for Marriage and Family Therapy Education (COAMFTE) [Please note: AGS is currently pursuing COAMFTE accreditation]. These therapists are overseen by the Minnesota Board of Marriage & Family Therapy, 2829 University Ave. S.E., Suite 330, Minneapolis, MN, 55414, phone 612-617-2220. The LMFT is recognized in nearly all 50 states. Graduates interested in praciticing in another state should make contact with that state's MFT oversight body. A license in Marriage and Family Therapy is not a national license. The link below to the Association of Marriage and Family Therapy Regulatory Board (AMFTRB) will provide access to each State’s Regulatory body. Students are encouraged to check the Educational Requirements and Licensing Requirements for the state in which they live or plan to practice. (See: AMFTRB)”
